As a race fan of road-relevant cars, it is balls.

But in these days of intellectual property etc, you can see how it happens.

Then again I wonder if Matt Braid has the balls to turn down entrants, I wonder if anybody might call his bluff.

It will only be a matter of time, before he can detirmine if he's in a position to argue or not.

You'd think if you were MPC or HMO, you might have words...

Thinking about it from a global perspective, I suspect it is part of the agreement they have had to sign with TCR Global - so the locals might not be the nexus of this argument.

MPC will have enough of a headache convincing customers into paying full freight for parts they could otherwise purchase from their local VW dealer for a fraction of the price

HMO may, or may not face a similar dilema...

They haven't even started yet and the kids are fighting. Seems to be the usual CAMS vs AASA fight.
Reminds me of the good old days when CAMS threatened all and sundry that if they raced at the speedway then they would never race at a CAMS sanctioned event.

Adcafe still haven't picked up on Ms Taylor's trip to Italy...

Perhaps TCR AU's marketing budget has run out to buy the necessary column inches?

You would think if he TCR doesn't a suitable entries, yet there are 10 shiny examples in Mr Salmon's hands with willing drivers, then rules may be relaxed?

A lease on a brand new race car won't be cheap.

Assuming he's buying them new off the showroom floor...

You could build a nice grid with lots of variety off what's been advertised on Racecars Direct in the last month or so. Many below $100KEU.
