Except for the fact that 888 customer cars have won races, and at least one championship and a Bathurst, but continue your journey in the waaaambulance.

Two times championship wins and one time Bathurst win to Dick Johnson Racing. It's been a long-time between drinks for this high quality Queensland operation indeed. DJR Team Penske has been all kinds of great stuff for Ford fans and Shell marketing honchos.

They could bring more to the sport too: like robot-welded "Made in USA" chassis for all at the fraction of the price of the hand-made PACE units, but Supercars is not interested... Their loss.

Surely you have to seperate DJR Team Penske from Dick Johnson Racing?

Thatís exactly what the series needs too, more things coming from overseas rather than being made locally

Given the livery that WAU has and it's similarity to perhaps, just saying, the BMW livery, what model will they launch for 2021 ?????

Hasnít the option of a control engine been around since the introduction of COTF in 2013?

Volvo were going to run with Chev engines in 2017 after all until GRM went Holden instead

the pieces seem to be falling into place
https://www.supercars.com/news/champ...-mostert-deal/

BMW has declared its interest in a full-time deal with Chaz Mostert for 2020, as the Supercars star approaches the end of his current contract with Tickford Racing.
So, that's something Chaz has to decide Ė where does he enjoy himself most. Is it mainly in Australia? Or is it on a bigger scale?

ďAnd then obviously, yeah, I would be absolutely happy to talk to him about plans that we could do together.

Yeah there's a control engine somewhere, which is literally a crate Chev.

Having a Chev engine in the Volvo's was considered, but Garry in the end said it's the whole package or nothing. Given the efforts put into the engine and everything else the team put together, he didn't want to water it down. And Volvo wanted out, so in the end they worked it out.

The Volvo allegedly tested with the Chev engine aboard before the Polestar Yamaha showed up..
