Queensland Raceway seems to be making overtures for running a Supercar event, even though they are basically fully booked.

Equipped with lights now, a TV spectacle?

Obviously we know as fans the perilous state of some of the teams we follow in this sport.

I note with interest the VERY wealthy NRL already putting their hand out to the Government for a handout because they have clearly mismanaged their affairs. No doubt they will get it too.

Currently, Supercars has made no decisions regarding its plans for the remainder of the year.

I can't see where they have made any decisions on anything lately at all. Any event anywhere is a non starter under present rules so I guess they won't have to decide about this offer either.

So if my sponsorship $$$ payable to Team XYZ depends on engagement and exposure and there is none, do I cancel the cheque??

Will depend on what force majeure provisions are contained in contracts. But much like all other professional sports, the lack of income is going to have a profound effect.

And not to mention Supercars being unable to fulfill their quota of TV hours under their agreement with Fox.

That is going to kill their cash flow if it is paid per event which seems a normal thing to do. I hope they have a big piggy bank.

New NT quarantine measures threaten Hidden Valley event and South Australia to close borders in response to coronavirus pandemic.

With the federal government making it fairly clear that it will be at least 6 months before we can expect any sort of normality to resume, probably not a case of if but when the whole season is cancelled. Although Supercars are adamant Bathurst's date is not able to be moved, think we will be lucky to see any action by then.

Everything is going to stop for 2020. It HAS to.

FFS, let's get some common sense happening!

When I first heard about the Eseries, I largely ignored it. But after a day or two, I came around to the idea. In a world of no sport, any live competition is likely to get media coverage. Drivers are sitting idly by, get some use from their profile.

This is a great opportunity for teams to get additional coverage for their sponsors.

What are the football codes going to be doing for the next 4 weeks? Nothing. Supercars has something to generate chat.

The Eseries won't entertain many here, but that doesn't really matter. It only needs a small percentage of the very large possible audience to be a success. It's not a solution, but given the times, it is a good idea.

Backagain has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Not sure if I am willing to subscribe to KAYO let alone Foxtel to watch it though.

If they are smart, with so many sports on hiatus, throw it open and let people see how good it is...
