Sending cars overseas - rule limitations?

In this story here

https://www.supercars.com/news/champ...ughlin-falcon/

It says "A primary consideration, though, is restrictions within the Supercars rulebook about sending cars overseas."

I had a quick look at the rulebook, but either missed it or not looking in the right section. What is the limitation on sending cars overseas? Fair enough if it was current, but seems kind of ridiculous seeing it's no longer a current spec car?

Next they'll be writing rules on what colour jocks you can wear and what your nextdoor neighbour can have for breakfast.

The car is now deregistered.

Will never race here, or anywhere else again.

That's the rule REC owners signed up for.

It's a very good question. It doesn't need a Mustang body over it.

I can only imagine the bleating if Roland did something like this.

And a couple of old Walkinshaw/Dencar Commodores as well. They're now based in the UK.

I think the concern/gripe (not sure) is around the COTF chassis, which Supercars has the IP to.

Given Penske's vast resources. Who's to say they didn't just build one from scratch, instead of going through the hoops of getting one out of Oz?

Likewise with WAU and 888's resources and international contacts....

I would like to think that the exposure that the car would get in the Penske Museum / complex, with many thousands of visitors each year, many of them perhaps currently unaware VASC even exists, would be a huge benefit to VASC with an increased international following, increased US TV viewers etc potentially the result. Surely the benefits would far outweigh any downsides.

If memory serves, a team (BJR?) was fined 10-15 years ago for starting to construct a new chassis without having filled out the correct paperwork with VESA.

Penske offered the category their services, to use their robots to build basic shells at a very cheap price, but was quickly rejected. They prefer Australian made.

Zak Brown has the ex-WR winning Bathurst car in Europe, T8 have sold a couple of cars to Asia (Thailand?). Plenty of ex-Supercars around the world.

The main problem I can see is that Penske has the possibility of tearing down a current generation car and make a few unfair advantages with their resources outside Aus. (Such as wind tunnel testing)

But what is going to stop the Penske part of DJR-Team Penske ripping off the FGX panels and bolting on Mustang panels? (Under the guise of pulling the chassis off the display for "restoration" or "servicing", ripping off FGX panels and putting on Mustang bodywork and then do out of rules testing with Supercars/CAMS not doing a thing since technically it's no longer a registered Supercar)
