Is anyone else following this? $165,000,000 defrauded from the ATO. Would have been really clever if they had got away with it. "Innocent until proven guilty" - but not looking too innocent right now.

They had a Porsche entered for the 12 Hour and prepare a few cars in the Australian Prototype Series.


Seriously, what is it about motorsport in general that attracts these types?

No matter how good the auctions are, the ATO will never get more than a fraction of its (estimated $165M, but possibly a lot more) money back.

CP, I don't really know, but it's a great way to spend a whole lot of money, which could be a part of the reason.

There you go, CP. You could have asked bundy directly and got the correct answer even sooner.

A quick look at his results on track suggest he was anything but fast...

Not making an accusation here, but what about Adam's brother Josh (that's his name, right?) who also races in the same series? Was he just not in on it? What's the go?

In regards to motorsport attracting these types, it's still better than the types that rugby league attracts...

These types are certainly rorting the system for bigger dollars.

Bundy, can you help out here? Someone wants to know about Josh Cranston. Was he "in on it"? Also, what about the Dad who (we're told so far) apparently wasn't "in on it". Strange... The Deputy Commissioner of Taxation, with a reputation for busting companies rorting our tax laws, has a son and daughter at the top of a syndicate that rorted over $165,000,000 from the ATO, who have amassed piles of properties, a couple of aircraft, heaps of luxury cars, plus racing cars and a race team, bikes, plus cash, cash, cash, piles of jewelry, etc, etc - and he knew nothing. He borrowed the luxury cars from time to time, and he even helped his son by illegally accessing classified information from the Tax Office - but he isn't a suspect. What's the go there, bun, ole son?

Thank you for asking my opinion on this. I always appreciate when a person of your stature asks for my opinion when I defer to you as a person that I have previously said would make the best candidate to be PM on here.

As you know, I have only read the reports as no doubt you have. It seems fairly reasonably to conclude that he ought to have knowledge being the father and all but when it comes down to proving it is really all in the document trail and unless there is that, he will most likely not have to answer for anything that his son is specifically charged for.

I've gotta wonder how the father would supposedly not know. For any of you blokes on here that are fathers, if your kids were suddenly richer than they really should be, would you not question it? I'm not a father, but I'd be questioning it for sure.

The Sports racer field at Winton looked a bit smaller than it was at Sandown. Hmmm.
