FPV8U should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Supercar RECs, StartUps & Performance

With so many drivers sniffing around, could we finally see those REC's come off ice and be pressed into service?

The field has looked more appealing with those couple extra rows on the grid filled thanks to the wildcards.

Are they still available, or have they been absorbed thus increasing everyone's shareholding

Who is going to fund the purchase of these RECs, letalone fund the actual running of the cars afterwards?

Yep. Anyone who thinks breaking into the maingame as a team, is financially viable at this point in time, is kidding themselves.

When was the last time a new start-up came into the sport, and where are they now?

If you call spending at least $40 million viable?

Not sure a change in ownership and name equals a "start-up."

I think before new recs/cars are brought in, a minimum standard has to be set. TheLDM cars are a joke, prehistoric second hand buckets of bolts. There are by far better equipped teams in super2. Matt Stone has superior machinery, engineering and funding than LDM by far. Maybe time for supercars to give someone else a shot. I understand LDM own the REC, but are they really doing it justice?

Relegation is the answer!

Last proper start-up was LDM.

All the others since, were either buy-ins/outs, mergers, RECs serviced by other teams, or doing that prior to going solo (Tekno, CSR).

Relegation/promotion system wouldn't really work. You'd have team after team dropping out each year, with no one else having the wherewithal to step up. Which is why there are a few RECs still sitting in Mr Warburton's bottom drawer.

Perhaps a full annual review as to why the team who finishes last in the team's championship a couple of years in a row should be allowed to hang onto their RECs

I wonder if the conditions of the RECs have been re-lawyered since the last time Mr L. Dumbrell dragged it through the courts?
