With the loss of local manufacturing, 2 recent withdrawals and now the loss of the Adelaide circuit it seems the series is on its last legs.

Unless they change the format significantly to attract more teams & manufacturers, it’ll be gone by June 2021. They lost me when Benz & Nissan pulled out TBH.

Hi Mark, you may have noticed also, unless I am mistaken, Mercedes are no longer competing in the German Touring Car Championships. All Audi and BMW now. Seeing that this country no longer manufactures Motor Vehicles, should the Government now consider removal of the Luxury Car tax ? Fat chance of that happening.

We should also start considering the future of Australian Supercars. I believe that GM will prepares Chevrolet Corvettes for next year, but I am a little rusty, or simply don't know, about those developments. I also believe that 2021 may be the last year we see of the Mercedes F1 team ? There may be some significant changes that may develop. Perhaps Michel may even wish to add to this subject matter. Regards Styria

Lost interest when Leo Geogan in his Mustang and Norm Beechey in his Chev departed. ++ Jimmy Richards in his Rotary Mazda. No variety... a procession with two vehicles both built to a rigid formula. One develops an advantage...
put a couple of Sand Bags in the Trunk ( Boot ) of the other.:rolleyes:
