Did I? Ok then, answer this: Who/what sponsorship was paying for Car 47 once Supercheap moved on? Answer: No one - or not enough to run it viably. So they sold the REC

Once they were down to 3, Schwerkolt was asked to pay more to share the load, to which he responded to by leaving.
"Schwerkolt joined Walkinshaw in 2015 on a two-year deal, but is understood to have been asked to increase his financial input next year due to the extra per-car cost of running three entries rather than four"

Roland not happy others have piece of cake before him.

The link's not working for me. Does he make any mention of Tekno?

Let's face it, Roland probably has half an idea how much it costs HRT to run 2 cars a year, so for them to run this Porsche, he's probably looking at that and comparing.

In all honesty, they can't even get the 2, let alone 4 cars, right in the main game, the last thing they should be doing is looking to run in the AGT.

Unless it generates cash to run the HRT side of the operation too... as PCR did back in the day...

I suspect there's more margin in renting out a Porsche than a V8SC.

There's no doubt that Mr Dane has and is doing the sums on a GT3 program's viability. He's got several lines in the pond already, via two members of his engineering group, plus Tekno, and now Egglestone. His remarks about WP's involvement are most likely an exercise in brown-nosing Mr McNamara at Holden.

Not sure how much margin your thinking they could potentially make, unless they're planning to charge top dollar on 2 cars, and subsidies a cheap effort on one car with that?? You pay us $7M, we give you coverage across 3 machines, but it only costs us $6M to run the whole lot, whilst I quietly prop the rest of business..... Good concept, morally wrong. But then there's no morals in motorsport....

That's how sponsorship works.

Sell the space for as much as you can, race for as cheaply as possible.

Quote from article:

“I think it’s totally inappropriate that Walkinshaws are racing in that championship. It’s not their core business. It’s outrageous,” says Roland Dane, head of the title winning Triple Eight Race Engineering operation.

“There is no enough money to make it stack up. And I don’t think it’s healthy for Australian GT racing.”

Yet, ironically, Dane was deep in discussions with Ferrari about next year’s 12-hour race and admits he would like to make two visits to Mount Panorama each year, one for the V8 Supercars 1000 and one for the GT3 battle.

“I think the V8 teams have things to bring to the 12-hour. Even if it’s just supporting the overseas teams. And I hope we see that roll out,” says Dane.

“So, have I got an interest in helping a team in the 12-hour next year? Yes, I have. Yes, there is a definite opportunity.”

“We’ve got new chassis here that are basically at a point where they’re ready to decide whether they’re going to be a Holden, Ford, Volvo, Mercedes or Nissan,” Ryan explained.

Also interesting that the Ford logo on the DJRTP gear is under license, ie they are not being sponsored for it, but they figured the logo will sell more merch.

Pretty smart.

Understand that in return Ford Australia will supply 'some' panels and parts around mid season. Awfully kind of them...
