The funny thing is... Mr Brown recently bought the Tander/Percat Bathurst winner... I wondered from the image and that connection whether Mr Brown's United Autosports wouldn't be a great partner for WP...

It's actually quite a telling photo, although the McLaren link doesn't necessarily point to Zak's potential involvement. He'd be a great commercial adversary!

I tell you what, that sentence is an alarming stat, no matter how you look at it. Even more so considering the teams heritage.

GTR any idea if Paul Little was approached before the news was made public ?

Is HSV in play in any way? Is Jeff Browne still involved.

Both gentlemen were close to Tom I believe.

Mr Little was said to be in the mix for a Garth Tander Racing opportunity last year after WP chucked him.. not clear who else (if anyone) may have been approached.

HSV only exists as a marketing agreement with Holden, which I think you will find will not be renewed.

Regardless of the talk about this the Tanders were never in.

Speedcafe is of the belief an announcement on an extension of its deal with HSV is imminent. http://www.speedcafe.com/2017/09/09/...partner-talks/

There is significant infrastructure and dealer investment in HSV so maybe they will use them as the outlet for OPC again, or maybe brand aftermarket accessories.

I believe there is more to HSV than a marketing agreement, ie the company behind HSV - Mr Browne chaired that company after Tom passed away. For example:https://www.motoring.com.au/hsv-owne...anning-104281/

Paul Little still sponsors Garth thru his real estate outfit. Have cashed in his Toll shareholding & stepped down from his role at Essendon Football Club in the AFL .....

Mr Little is certainly capable of just about anything in the motorsport space
All kind of depends on his inclination.. which is not immediately obvious
