Compromised should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Nah simpler to run a grid full of race cars sans manufacturer involvement.

bluesport is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
A one make series would seem to be the obvious answer, it was mooted previously when Ford departed the series.

Agreed. I would suggest using the 5.2L Alluminator crate engine (a very reasonable $34,000AUD as opposed to $150,000AUD for the Windsor with it's hundreds of hours of custom machining) to ease transition costs for Holden teams.

The way I am reading the release, this could generate a significant windfall for DJ Walky?

I think he has delivered a remarkable facility and capability and if GM gives him enough of their cars, and the numbers for conversion work out, he could end up sell a LOT of cars.

Possible, definitely possible. Or GM could have an arrangement with Walkinshaw as an independent importer, running marketing, sales, dealer network but with the global warranty program underpinning the operation and full GM branding / support.

That is the arrangement for example that Subaru have with Inchcape, and have done for many years. Currently Ateco look after Ram, LDV and Maserati in this way and have previously done the same for Fiat and Alfa. Audi was imported and run by Inchcape for years, the list is actually pretty extensive of brands that have been imported/distributed by independents.

We'll find out more in the months to come no doubt.

Unlikely. Unless they can magically get the Camaro in the 60K ballpark, I can't see a big sales increase for an 80K car. Not to mention the Camaro is most likely dead come 2021.

Like the Silverado, the Corvette would be 120K plus, so it's not going to fly out the showroom.

Langer's Lang-Lang

On a more serious note, could Lang Lang become the replacement for Sandown? Where are the Shahins and Tony Quinn?
