The car seemed to go better when it was largely a Tickford car, since they have added a DJR engine and other bits...it seems to have lost it's way.....and ironically, the Tickford cars are probably the best Stangs out there now and third best package overall behind the super ZB's of T8 and WAU...

The WAU cars are really good as you say that NP is 15th and Chaz 5th  ??? Hardly better. Chaz and Adam the main reason here.

As for the opening post of this topic, Stanaway and Boost happening? What’s the bet Adderton will do a back flip and we’ll see them on a Supercar next year  ::)

Mr Boost could even have a share in the category itself given the current ownership muddle.

Good point!

Now that the Payne shares have been sold, there remains about a 15% shareholding by the Rogers, who are also shareholders in ARG.

They were very unhappy that a very well prices takeover was rejected by RACE. That may be an underestimation of their wrath/disapointment based on news reports.

They might feel justified in selling all their shareholding in both organisations to Adderton if he makes a suitable offer. Would he really want to???


There would be nothing to stop them continuing to run a TCR team and a TransAm team simply as entrants.

They would at least get a superior return on their investment by selling to a higher bidder and it only takes 10% plus 1 shares to stymie compulsory share sales in a takeover.

GRM still has a substantial investment in S5000, which rarely uses the cars available. They have had offers to buy the cars, intellectual property and all from USA.

Gary has been a stalwart of Motorsport for many decades. Although we share an annual birthday, his was a few years earlier. I feel old.

Barry was and is a businessman, who may share his father's Motorsport dreams, but surely not at any cost.
