GRM out of Supercars

So GRM depart the series, and Team 18 step up to two cars...

A sad day, but Garry rightly states that Supercars have been unable to contain costs.

GRM will continue with TCR and S5000.

Presumably, the GRM recs haven't been included in any calculations about the number of cars for this year as they had intended to be running next year until they got unBoosted.

I believe the two Kelly RECs are already sold (one to MSR, one to perhaps Team 18) so maybe one GRM REC to Teamkno Sydney for their second car? So down another car next year perhaps?

A sad day for Australian motorsport.

Thankfully they've been clever in the way that they've been able to diversify into other categories, and utilise their in-house resources.

I know it's a moot point, but I wonder where they'd be if they kept Tander?

Problem is Mayhem, if they kept Tander then they wouldn’t have had the Boost $$$$?

It’s a very sad day in Supercars motorsport indeed. But they could become a powerhouse in TCR..

Plus the fact that there are 2 less cars on the grid - it’s a buyers market for franchises.. that’s especially sad...

Out of supercars and out of pocket.

Very sad news. Supercars will be a worse category without the likes of GRM.
Best of luck to Garry and all his employees in the future.

I found it very distasteful that Garry has said he appealed to Supercars for a one of two week extension to the deadline to give him time to obtain sufficient backing to continue.... Supercars declined to offer even a day.

I will miss him humour and pitlane antics in particular.

Very sad.

But at least GRM continues elsewhere.

Supercars is no longer for the larrikins and battlers. Unless one is a cashed up international, then they're nothing in Supercars.

As others have said, Supercars loss is now S5000 and TCR's gain.

I also found it very distasteful that Peter Adderton (I think thats his name, the Boost Guy) put them in this position with only a week or 2 to find some alternative, because of his perceived lack of equality, when the lack of results was brought about by his own decisions.
