The Warbler is back in the big chair at Seven West.

Do you think that will mean TCR and the ARG categories could potentially get Channel 7 exposure when not on a Supercars bill? Or will it mean an avoidance due conflict of interest?

Two-day format for Winton.

Strange that they're allegedly doing it as a favour to the teams, that by and large, are being heavily subsidised to be there

Almost like they're doing it because there are only three categories on the card, and S5000 isn't making the trip.

Subarus benched for Sandown.

I suppose there isn't much point now that Ms Taylor is no longer providing free driveshafts...

Lynk and Co open up orders for their car:
https://www.touringcartimes.com/2019...heOo2Z7PLMJaOg

Bang on the 130k Euro cap price, and "priority will be given to Chinese orders" with deliveries to start in 2020...

How's that work with the 90 day rule?

Surely they are taking the ****.

Under TCR Rules
For certification the minimum race car production will be 10 units in 12 consecutive months starting with the date of the
application. After the certification the cars have to be offered on the market with maximum 3 months delivery time.

So should anyone order a Lynk and Co on the 19th September which as the order books are open they can the latest the car can be delivered is 19th December.

They've built several spare chassis outside of the 4 that are being raced.

So potentially, the build quota has been met.

MPC are running the Britek Golfs this weekend, thus all associated branding with MSR/Alliance Autosport has vanished off the cars.

The Lynk complies with the regs. Why do you keep pushing this barrow?

It has only started to comply when pressure was applied.

It's not my barrow.

They willl not sell a car outside of China for the next year. Mark my words.

But TCR was so keen they don't care. They have only forced them to comply in some sort of paper sense when Hyundai got up about it.

Go find me a picture of one of these road cars that an owner has posted?

Are you suggesting that their is not a production road going version of the Lynk & Co.

Despite the fact that for a car to be eligible for TCR Competition 5,000 have to be built within 12 consecutive months.
