So looks like there’ll be some more investment in the series, which should be nice. At least we keep most of the current team on board by the sounds of it. It’s taken time, but glad it’s come good.

Obviously last year wasn’t easy, but the series should be able to be more sustainable now, at least from next year, although it might take a bit to match previous heights for a while, but it’s a good start.

We’ll hear more as time goes on, but it sounds good by the sounds of it. Some outsider investing without taking over from those in the know. Thanks to the Aus for that article

How long do we give the “partnership” before it breaks down and I’ve had to buy the other out?

This really worries me. If Supercars and TCR are now kind of owned by the same body could TCR get swept up behind the Foxtel paywall ?

I stopped watching V8s and F1 when that happened in 2014, looks like it could happen again ?

ARG seem to have a close relationship with Channel 7, and the owners of ARG have so far seemed to think FTA is important to their product…..maybe this new ownership structure will see Supercars swing a little more back to FTA.

Depends on the TLA/TGI side, they are the ones more likely to favour the $$ signs of pay tv over looking after the sport.

I really don’t see the “partnership” lasting long term. Once they have the ownership, then they’ll battle themselves and one will buy the other out……

I dont see the value of the TV rights as the primary reason for the TLA/TGI involvement including funding from from TGI’s US-based owner, Bruin Sports Capital.

'The new owners were also undertaking a $25m capital raising led by advisory firm Henslow, with investors taking a large slice of the raising offered board seats and personalised VIP experiences at selected Supercars events.'

'A category of “value-add” shareholders would provide $6m in services such as billboards, radio promotion and industry expertise for two years before gaining ordinary shares.'

Try this from May 2021 for a better idea of where the TLA/TGI group are coming from:
https://www.mediaweek.com.au/qms-com...sport-capital/
QMS Media (QMS) has announced that it has completed its strategic partnership with Bruin Capital (Bruin). The partnership will see Bruin and Quadrant Private Equity become co-owners of global sports technology company TGI Sport which includes TLA Worldwide (Aust) Pty Ltd and TLA – ESP Limited (UK).

TGI Global CEO, Barclay Nettlefold, said: “The completion of the deal forms a key component of our strategic vision as we set out to create a world leading technology led sports media business. The new partnership will build on TGI’s impressive growth, adding the strategic capabilities, capital and resources of Bruin to diversify and expand the company worldwide.

“We are well positioned to drive significant growth and meet our strategic and financial objectives, particularly with our investment into leading Parallel Advertising (PADS) multiplication technology which is revolutionising the way broadcasters and sporting bodies can segment and regionalise perimeter LED advertising.”

There's more thats about the business model rather than SuperCars, given it was ahead of bids closing.
