What do you consider an Aussie team?

The last all-Aussie team to win the series would be Seton in 1997



You don't consider T8 an Australian teaam. Dane is a naturalised Australian and apart from Tim Miles (from the East Island of Oz) the others are Australian



I don't think anyone would consider T8 an Australian team really....

I thought this thread was about a Penske rumour...
Obviously, my bad.

Would be good to keep one on topic!

I reckon they’ll exit 2021.

Edit: end of 2021

The obvious answer would be Team Sydney.

They would still have all the same people if Roger Penske left the team. And the same money too as long as they’re able to keep Shell on board. Penske would surely continue to sponsor the team as well.

I honestly think they’d be an even stronger team if they were fully owned by someone who didn’t have so much other racing going on. Though obviously losing Scotty Mac is seriously going to hurt them especially in the short term... but he’ll be one hell of a good co driver.

Would She’ll still be there without the B2B that Penske provides?

And are they paying full freight to be on the cars currently anyway?

Do you mean like before Roger started spending his own money to get the team to the top? Doubt it ! They could barely show up each round.

I doubt he spent his own money except for the initial purchase of 51% of the team - which would now be worth a heck of a lot more today.

The Captain's reputation and track record of success enabled the team to find the best sponsors and the best people.

I trust Ryan Story has everything he needs to take what Penske created and keep it going. The only real threat to the team is Scotty Mac's exit.

The biggest threat to Penske is Holden pulling out. That 51% won't be worth anything if Supercars can't get their head around GenIII.

Shell wouldn’t be around if Ludo and Scotty were not part of the plan, to achieve that plan he used heaps of money through his various companies and probably still is propping up the team a little. He also uses resources from his other teams which are not paid for via the Supercars team. Ryan Story would be working elsewhere if Penske didn’t save the team, Ludo would still be at triple 8 with out his big payrise and Triple 8 would have a couple more championship trophies on their shelf.

Without Penske and the B2B benefits his business can offer, it will be difficult to maintain the status quo

Sounds like Penske being involved saved us from a bore fest then heh! Hope he sticks around....can't see him leaving and the usual gossip factories Speedcafe, AA and Supercars site aren't touching the story/rumour...
