That is a bit harsh, in the sense that GRM would have, in their contract, performance clauses that they would have known they weren't reaching.

Sad to see GRM leaving. When teams of that quality cannot survive there is something wrong with the structures.

The problem with GRM is the age of the founder.

I'm confused by this statement when Sean Seamer in this article says
"Seamer has confirmed today’s deadline is not the ultimate cut-off for 2020 entries."
So if today isn't the last day why couldn't an extension be given?

That and there isnt an available business model that is sustainable for them in the category.

With the prospect of reduced funding coming in via the next tv contract, there could be more of the same for teams

Sad day for supercars fans.

Now if old Gazza, has been a one legged transgender dwarf, and a little more politically correct would he got two weeks grace?

It’s a very sad day and a reflection on how the category’s resistance to much needed change will cost the series in the long term.

Glad to see they’re continuing on in other categories and that there is avenues out there for the team to keep on racing and make some money out of it to keep the doors open.

Unfortunately the verve and vitality Garry once had is gone. Can't help parking the blame at P. Adderton's feet; I think Garth and Golding may have been able to do enough to keep the fickle sponsor happy. Honestly though do we need that ******** in the sport? Demanding a rule change like that so late in the year and so close to REC deadline?
So much like Craig Gore it's not funny.

I feel for Garry and his team. Another one of the foundation teams gone. I hope TCR and the open wheelers will turn out to be a better proposition for them in the long run.

Are there any other teams on the cusp of oblivion from Supercars? It cant be a good look for Supercars when a team cites the reasons Garry has to forcibly leave.

They're involved, but it may as well be a new team.
