But aren't we now staring at a number of teams handing in RECs anyway? If GTR's mail is right, maybe a field as low as 20 for next year, isn't that what we were facing before Supercars sold the farm to Fox?

Which may have been a catalyst to make some real changes to the operating costs rather than propping up the series until the next TV negotiation.

Let's face it, all it really did was dig a bigger hole for the series to climb out of once the deal is over. An awful strategic blunder.
