Another jumps off the sinking ship.

New owner doubles investment. Previous owner stays in the game with engine & parts manufacture to multiple teams.

Another jumps off the sinking ship.

And one jumps on. Status quo...

Kelly's look like they want to do similar to GRM. Keeping their fabrication and engine workshop (and the current 'stangs).
Dare say we'll see a lot more 'customer' teams of KR.

Maybe parts but definitely not cars

As mentioned prior:

Why not?

The Kellys will still have three Mustangs and could run a Super 2 team in 2023, should they choose. They also have some Nissans which are eligible for Super2 in 2022.

The Kellys  have been a licensed chassis builder and could still build Gen 3 chassis, or even complete cars for customers such as Grove.
Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

Doesn't have to be just Supercars.
They've toiled in TCR and with an engine program could cater for a fair bit outside of those realms - which is what it sounds like Todd wants to do.

Looking like the season is going to be given a reshuffle, including the big one:

I'd be happy with that.
Just hoping it doesn't mess with the Speed Weekend I've planned on entering.

 :D :D Good pickup.



Red Bull staying in for another 2 years:

Likely means that Red Bull see Supercars being the motorsport with most eyes on it for the next couple years.

Earl Barber was mentioned in the recent podcast of Below The Bonnet as most likely to replace Whincup.

He cuts my hair.

Bamber was mentioned earlier on this forum as an option, I don't see why though?
Is his association with Porsche ending?

Haha my iPad auto corrected it. Didn’t notice.

There has been no confirmation of his Porsche arrangements. I wonder if Red Bull have a say on who the next car #88 driver is.
