I also know where the Bruce Highway is...

Anyhoooo, looking forward to 8.31, I would hope it could only get better in terms of possibilities and opening doors for WR and drivers in both categories, foreign and domestic. Might even be the thing to cement JC there for another year or more...

You would hope that news site would take the time to remove any grammatical and spelling errors in the meantime then...

05 October, 2017

THE future of Australia’s greatest V8 team has been assured by a multimillion-dollar deal that brings another American racing giant join on to the Australian Supercars scene.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal Walkinshaw Racing has sold a multi-million stake in the iconic Aussie team to US heavyweight Andretti Racing to help resurrect the outfit formerly known as the Holden Racing Team as a V8 force.

Team owner Ryan Walkinshaw confirmed he would sell a non-controlling stake in the famous two-car team to Andretti Racing and another portion of the business to McLaren Group heavy hitter Zak Brown.

US legend Michael Andretti — owner of Andretti Racing — will bring NASCAR racing technology to Australia in a bid to bring down his American Indy rival, US billionaire Roger Penske, on Australian circuits like Mount Panorama.

“We have been looking for a strategic partner for the past 12 months,’’ Walkinshaw said.

“We had an introduction to Michael and it very quickly made a lot of sense. Zac then came on board to make it a truly international partnership. This is going to be a game changer.’’

In his first interview as a Supercars team owner, Andretti — a CART racing legend and former Formula One driver — declared he would return Walkinshaw Racing to their glory days after Holden stripped it of factory backing and the famous Holden Racing Team name.

“I am in the business of racing and we are constantly looking for opportunities. This was a fantastic opportunity,’’ said Andretti, who has eyes on instant success down under.

“For sure. We can do that and we have a lot of ideas already. There are things that we can do that will certainly help. We are coming here to win. I wouldn’t be here otherwise.’’

The son of legend Marco Andretti said he would deliver state-of-the-art NASCAR technology to the series in a no-expenses-spared bid to send Walkinshaw Racing to the top of the V8 pile.

“We are going to be hands on,’’ Andretti said.

‘We have our technical director down here already and he has a lot of experience in NASCAR. He has a tonne of ideas about what he can bring from NASCAR. He only left NASCAR last year and he is the guy that is responsible for turning one of the big teams around. He has a lot of things he has learned that he hopefully will put in place here.’’

Walkinshaw, who took over the famous team when his father Tom passed away in 2010, said he would deliver on his promise to make his dad’s team great again.

The Holden Racing Team won 179 races and six championships in a golden era led by legends Peter Brock, Mark Skaife and Craig Lowndes.

“We certainly hope so,’’ Walkinshaw said.

“We have to now make sure we deliver on it. There has been a lot of work getting to this point but the real work is just starting. We have to start working together and delivering solution to the race team that will deliver results. It won’t change over night but we are adamant it will.’’

Andretti has also made it his mission to secure a new manufacturer for the team after the Holden walkout.

Interesting tie up.... Andretti Autosport in Indycar is hardly the most cashed up team when it comes to sponsors on the side, so I assume they'll provide the technical side, United Autosport can work the promotional angle?

Great news to have these people in the series either way
