peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Korean brand i reckon.

definitely those brands are moving to some sporty mainstream cars (hero cars) which would fit with the series and do not big competition in other series

Or is it a vague attempt to deflect bad PR for GRM whilst all the Volvo stuff is going on? Mr Rogers wasn't exactly full on details - about 5% of the way through the process apparently.

Remember Mr Cochrane's annual Bathurst press release about a 3rd manufacturer joining?

the question was who might be joining the series in 2018...

quit your off topic trolling with old fashion antidotes about TC

3 years ago Garry said he was bringing in a new manufacture and he was correct

How long can the falcon keep racing, could it be gone as well in 2018? It doesn't seem likely that Ford will homologate a Mustang for the series, or will they?

MAybe tickford might be able to homologate something

But i tend to agree 2018 for the falcon, i guess in theory no reason it cant continue

Everyone was saying that Volvo were definitely staying too....right up until they weren't

Wasn't GRM supposedly a goer with Chrysler a couple of times before the Volvo connection came true

It definitely seems like a 'good PR' time to be putting out how you're talking to a new manufacturer in the same story where you are laying the boot into your current partner

Are Speedcafe chasing the story, or is GRM ringing them and wanting a story written?

Yes the question was asked based off the cited article - referencing claims from GRM.

The timing seems coincidental doesn't it?

yes,yes! You've dribbled on about that in the volvo thread, trolling (by ten tents definition) is saying the same thing in mutliple threads.

New manufacturers DRT got an opinion?

Should only allow current body shapes to run. Allow the Falcon to run in 2017, but then, sadly for this Ford fan, pull the plug at the end of 2017.

It will probably need a tough decision, like the ARDC made in 1980, to force the change.

I dont disagree with you. But that would force a big cost on 6 teams/cars
Lets hope something happens before then. 5l mustang being the most hopeful

A waste of time for them unless they could secure T8 to run the team and T8 aren't available, Nissan and Volvo have already made that mistake.
