But in spite of their no Herne no race statement they have already confirmed Jayden Ojeda to take his place, with the car now set to race next weekend. He has more than enough points for his required Superlicence.
It seems a no brainer given the fact the race squad have all been doing their quarantine, and the costs involved have been incurred. Ojeda is Sydney based so no problems with quarantine.

Yeah I thought it went offline for a bit.

Nice to see the team have replaced their other driver and will still enter the event.

I would say it was pulled until this was confirmed:

GRM had presumably spent Herne's money on the entry preparation and the new engine and Ojeda has happily kicked the can to take his place.
GRM should never have let it get to this point.
They should have sounded out the likelihood of Herne getting an exemption well before sponsors were sought and cars were prepared unless they had this fallback option planned all along.
Herne now saying that a wildcard at Bathurst this year was his one & only chance to make it in supercars (he is 18!) and the dream is now gone.
Should have aimed for a Super2 run at Bathurst with GRM support if they were so keen to help his career.

Seven day forecast for Bathurst showing showers on Friday and Saturday, with rain on Sunday.

Could make for an interesting day in the office on Sunday, especially with co-drivers being a little under done with seat time this year.

Very interesting regarding the rain, sitting out in the rain all day sitting in those deck chairs.

No corporates I see from that shot also

Since we're all locked down and can't go anywhere and working from home, there's no reason why I shouldn't attempt an all-nighter. It may not work out that way, but I'll be trying. If I disappear for a bit, someone poke me :-)

Aw, thank you. And you're right. Except you won't have me so I'm stuck here.

We often do that kind of late night / early morning here in Oz. F1 normally earlier (11:00 or 11:30 ish most times), NASCAR telecasts generally kick off around 3:00 AM and the good bits of Le Tour end up being after midnight & let's not even think about Ashes tests in the UK - they are 5 nights in a row (when they go the distance).

All works fine as long as you don't need to drive off to work on Monday morning - although I guess we're talking Saturday night for you lot given the time difference. You could turn the heating WAY up, fill the fridge with cold beers and have an "authentic" Bathurst experience in the middle of the night!

Although the forecast for Sunday is for showers, so the weather might actually be more familiar to those in the home islands.
