Cheese Does Supercars As A Series Exist If There Are No Fords On The Grid?

A debate for a different thread, but do Supercars exist when Ford leave? Would it matter? Or would it change the series forever?

Ford left a couple of years ago. Is it sustainable for teams alone to develop a car at their own cost, on th basis of on selling parts? I suspect 888 is the only one with desirable enough cars.

All the people who've said they'd never watch another race again, for all the various reasons, will still be watching it.

With an SBR-Erebus front end in an Erebus VF & ZB, you might just think its kinda working for them... although it took kinda forever to do it.

You do have to wonder what an E63 might have been like with an SBR Ford engine aboard. Might not have been top grade on grunt, but the throttle response, the torque curve would probably be better..

You want Fords on the grid?

Don't think TCR is the way forward but it definitely ticks the manufacturer box

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
i am confident my interest diminishes and my desire to spend money to attend reduces greatly.

I went to newcastle last year because Ford were in the hunt for the championship, i would not have gone if they weren't. 100% clear on this

Would not cross the road or flick the switch on the TV to watch a one make Holden series.
(not biased, own one Holden and two Fords)

Interesting replies, uncomfortable replies for Supercars if they somehow dont have a Blue Oval product on the grid in 2020.
