its been suggested that the foxtel deal meant the team got around $500,000 each. at 26 teams and 35% ownership that meant the yearly profit was $35 Million for the group.

one five five should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Any truth to the current talk being spread by a certain podcast that Morris, Dane and two Malaysian investors are poised to purchase Archer's share of Supercars?

Even if its a rumour I think I might have to delete Facebook now, the meltdown to come from Penske fans. OMG

Archer at the end of the day is in the business of buying and selling, so it will come one day.

Roland Dane is definitely up to something, he has been working pretty hard on softening his public image of late, it's been very 'orchestrated'.

Interesting times if Roland buys the keys to the series.

Manufacturers cannot own teams, but a team owner can part-own the series?

He already does, through a legal entity with business partners.
So does Mr Nash and Mr French and co.
And Mr Webb.
And Mr Bright.
And Mr Kelly & Mr Kelly...

And so on and so forth...

Hmmm - debatable and like everything in life, the teams being shareholders in the business has its pros and cons.

Far too late to consider putting it back in the bag now, been the case for over 20 years and I can't see any of the teams being prepared to step back out of having at least some part in the business and a (voting) seat at the table.

Except it has been in place since Level 1 and Level 2 Franchise Licence Agreements since the mid 1990's... the opening up to outside equity from Archer fragmented the equity position of each newly minted Racing Entitlements Contract holder just a little more.

Made sense then, still makes sense now. Skin in the game...

Why should Mr Dane and his cohorts be elegible for the (65%) controlling stake though?

No conflict of interest issue there at all?

AusGT has been owned by competitors several times.

Australian Super Touring Championship was.

Australian Production Car Series is.

Aussie Racing Cars...
It's nothing new.

So all okay if say Mr Penske, for argument's sake, bought the majority ownership of the premier series?
