I wonder when the 2 spare REC's will be put out to tender.

https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/06/11/kbr-full-time-supercars-graduation-not-off-the-cards/

2 extra Triple8 built cars may be on the grid one for Scott Taylor Motorsport the other Kostecki Brothers Racing.

Why would KBR convert one of there VF's to a ZB just for the endurance races when ZB's aren't allowed in the Super2 Series next year

Matt Stone Racing will also be trying to buy a REC. They aren't allowed to keep leasing the one they use after two years.

But they do know that if they continue in Supercars, they will need to buy a REC or find a driver with a REC.

I suspect there is another driver in the team who will be looking to run Super 1 next year. Maybe a Christmas gift from Daddy.

Current Supercar Teams are now professional service providers and require customers with either money or sponsors to pay that money.

Seems to be the only way.

Sponsors at smaller teams are walking away due to exploding pricing and lack of exposure.

Would be cool to see Mozzie overseas racing, he may have unfinished business here but he could always come back. And he would be in high demand.

The fact that he wouldn't rule out talking to other teams, didn't recommit to Tickford and is working on his dishelleved presentation....tells you all you need to know...

His clearly not saying anything because his got nothing signed.. Doesn't mean his heading for TP. And we aren't talking 2021, he needs a driver for 2020!

Just on another topic for 2020. Kelly Racing.

If we take them at their word that they want to continue as a 4 car team and that Todd still likes the Nissan engine:

Could they keep the same chassis and engine but move to a Renault body?

They have a long contact with Renault on TV and other activities. Of course Renault is a major shareholder in Nissan (and Mitsubishi?).

There are suggestions that Kellys will not go Holden, but they run Holden (Opel) in TCR.

I suggest that Kelly changes in 2020 will be the MAJOR influence on the silly season, particularly with all 4 drivers out of contact or out of form (ability?).

I suspect that their phones are already running hot with drivers from MSR, WAU, Tickford, Tekno, BJR. GRM etc. etc.

They may not be the best team but are probably the best harbour for mid level result drivers with a modicum of monetary backing.

They can only put the extra two RECs out to tender when they are sure they won't have any of the current 24 being handed back at the end of the year....

The unsold RECs are worthless! With the current direction taken by Supercars, nobody is prepared to put money into an entity with obvious marketing issues! How can you make a business case to potential sponsors when the administrators of the series have locked it away from fta TV audiences? There will be more RECs handed back at the close of the season!
