He wouldn't be driving a Mustang without Ford support. I think this is the point.

At the end of the day, if you take a gig as a professional racing driver, you have to cop it on the chin that your boss might be able to veto any other activity you do.

Now that we have got over the "shock" of Chaz not running can we get back to who might be running and in what. Two names I am hearing are Rullo and Denyer?

Only one name is a certainty, in Mr Vernon.

I won't be too concerned. Much bigger TCR series only have a handful of confirmed entries so far.

Chaz was driving an M8 GTE in Daytona which is directly competing against the Ford GT in the GTLM.

Ohhhh-kaay but then the Ford GT isn't sold in Australia so unlikely to have any impact on the limitations his Supercar team are putting on his driving opportunities.

Does the Hyundai slated for Mostert to drive still happen without him in the seat?

Probably.

They have three of the things, which will be an expensive waste of space if they're not out on the track.

The Ford sponsorship is for the team rather than directly with the driver no?

Correct in terms of taking on the chin, however I would hope there is some form of consistency from your boss when it comes to extra curricular activities. Van Gisbergen is a great example of how other forms of racing can support your performance

TSR has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
$250.000.00 Prize money for the series, now that is great news for a new series.

Who's paying for that?

No word from ARG about title sponsors and the like.

Entry fees are going to be special, with a big prize pool and FTA TV.

This is getting ridiculous. Now with the prize pool and more entrants, the Alfa's will be lucky to lead a lap let alone win a race! And I thought we were in for a shot there for a while..

What entrants?

Only one bloke is confirmed as running.

Everyone else just has cars, or loan of cars... No other drivers at all.

Don't panic, some announcements coming soon and I am hearing of a few more cars on the way to Australia.

Roland Dane mentioned they're announcing a new program next week.
I thought AGT, but TCR perhaps?
