Interesting to know what is going on at GRM... Garry (and Barry) are smart operators always ready to make a buck. Super 5000 builds, more TCR cars and investigating building Renaults, they seem to be branching off into areas other than their Supercar team.

Meanwhile the major sponsor of the Supercar team is moaning and whinging in public (noting that he has form) about the lack of speed in the team.

Perhaps they are looking at spreading risk or perhaps selling the V8 team to Mr Adderton shortly and carrying on having fun (and making money) elsewhere.

Interesting times at GRM....

Word around the traps is Boost might be more than just a sponsor of the Supercar team, which makes me think the TCR deal is where GRM will ultimately land.

GRM have enough other stuff going on that losing the Supercar team wouldn't have them scrambling to find work for other people to do as some teams would.

What is the impact of all these other racing series and engineering projects on the competitiveness of the Supercar operation?

Since Volvo's exit its been mid-pack at best. With experienced drivers I think it could be further up than it is now.

Btw for those that thought I was stupid for questioning Lynk and Co's relationship with Cyan Racing in WTCR:
https://www.touringcartimes.com/2019...uring-car-cup/

Cyan Racing has 4 cars, none are planned to be built or offered to anybody else for WTCR or any other series.

Vukovic and GRM may wish to get this in motion, with 3 of the 5 Meganes in active competition sustaining some degree of crash damage this weekend.

Hyundai's problem from that article seems to be more than just with Cyan or Lynk & Co, but with WTCR and its effect of global BoP in general

Ironic part being that Cyan Racing last year effectively ran the WTCR winning YMR Hyundai's.......maybe some sour grapes on Hyundai's part that Cyan went back to Geely this year?

Execept under TCR Regulations they have to build and supply cars to customers

From the TCR Regulations

"For certification the minimum race car production will be 10 units in 12 consecutive months starting with the date of the
application. After the certification the cars have to be offered on the market with maximum 3 months delivery time"

https://www.touringcartimes.com/2019...olvement-wtcr/

Bit more detail about Lynk and Co

Reading from that article it seems clear they have no intention of complying with the 3 month rule.

This does seem like it is in contravention of the rules, but I guess plenty of other manufacturers never delivered cars either.

Either way I can't see the organisers taking any action, they need the Chinese with their money, stars and 4 cars.

Very interesting that ARG, the mob that run the TCR series have just taken over management rights of the TCM series. I wonder how this effects the relationship between TCR/TCM and Supercars going forward?
