That's what they are doing. After a slow start, vaccines are picking up down under and there are signs of progress, so while the virus will never go away, it will be under better control, like here in the UK

With a 7 day average of 45K (new infections) per day in the UK, I guess there must be a marked reduction in fatalities to refer to it as being under better control (for which the vaccine rather than planning is responsible I imagine).

Amazing to think that CAMS basically gave the category to the teams at the end of 1995, and over 25 years the teams have now offloaded all of it….. what was the point ?

I wonder if Eugene or Motorsport Australia have a comment on this?

I mean apart from the massive commercial success that outlasted other categories by at least 3 times?

CAMS could never have done anything like it. But yeah, what was the point?

Now we wait, listen and watch the chess pieces move into place.

Interesting times await.

CAMS steered the championship for 37 years , so they actually did it for longer.

What was the point of CAMS giving it away when the teams, who championed for inclusion and input and a stake in the series, now have no ownership of it?

Arguably CAMS negotiated the best TV deal for Australian viewers, but commercial promotion was never their area of expertise.

You don’t have to own something to control it
The new ‘charter’ agreement apparently tethers the current REC holders to the RACE series, with some level of oversight/input likely negotiated to assure the continuance.

Anyone investing that sort of money was always going to want total control and that is fair enough as they take the risks involved. I am still not convinced it is a good long term investment when looked at with regard to the changes happening in the industry world wide but they are more clever than me.

You really sure about that, I have known some very clever people who really weren't when the crunch came.

Free to air is just not the best deal anymore.
I don't have antenna and the 7 app is ****. The ads play perfectly but then show errors out, and then you have another 4 ads.
The rules for broadcast TV allow 13 mins per hour not including "internal" promotional content, which seven shows a lot of.
There are no rules about number or timing of ads with catch up apps and it shows.
So for my 20 mins an hour I will pony up for Kayo when it suits me.

Sorry, your humble enthusiasm to enjoy a broader range of motor racing and bigger, wider motor racing "landscape" in Australia is not as important to holing onto the steadily bland and antiquated status quo.

There was no point other than acting on delusions of grandeur.
