    Another nail in the coffin for the series. Honestly, it's become irrelevant over the last few years with the introduction of COTF, and the other rules and restrictions brought in.
    Ford/FPV quit supporting the series years ago.
    Mercedes were unhappy with Erebus, and that partnership was cancelled.
    Volvo pulled out at the end of last year...
    At this point it's pretty much the Commodore cup. Over half the field run Holdens.

    Attendance is down, from the events I've attended, and they're giving away freebies hand over fist to get people through the gates.

      DJR/Penske won teams championship and Scottie threw away drivers championship in the last race. How is that formula Holden? DJR/Penske had the fastest cars all year and couldn't covert that pace into as many wins as they should have.

      Simona de Silvestro showed great pace in Newcastle and was lucky not to have two good top tens.

      The manufacturers think touring cars should be built to TCR rules, which ate a class or two below the COTF or the Gen2 and don't have anyway as good driver safety. Its important that the teams don't allow the manufacturers destroy the series like they have done to WTCC, DTM, WEC etc.

      Strange that you say that, when this year has been so good and the championship so close.

          Damn that came around fast, thanks for the reminder. I didn't print off the 2018 calendar because "there's lots of time".

            Hope this weekend being a points round makes better it than the last few years
