You'd hope he hasn't taken the desicion lightly, but if the rumours are true about his wife being no longer welcome in the pit garage.
Money aside his next 9 years of work and home life would difficult.

Given Penrite are apparently backing the move, probably gives him confidence.

That rumour would not surprise me at all, I have seen first hand how Betty communicates and interacts with her major sponsors, I have met her personally and she doesn’t impress, after dealing with Ross and Jimmy Stone foe a number of years before she entered the game, it was chalk and cheese.

This made me laugh...
Push-to-pass technology provides drivers with the ability to increase the car's power for short periods of time.

just take aero off the vehicles and passing tracks, scrap most of the driving rules and bring on the action, let the best driver win.

I agree, less aero, less rules...nascar style. Someone punts you off just keep it in the memory bank. Let them sort it out on track.

Paddle shift is fine if that's what makes them happy but Push to pass Im not a fan of in any form of motorsport.

I presume push to pass is similar to drag reduction in F1 ?

I wonder if they would let an ol 59 Zephyr do some laps?

May not be great in the corners compared to those guys, but it might look cool in the straight bits.

The Australian Grand Prix has been postponed until later in 2021, which means we are going racing at Sandown in March!

They should have never removed Sandown from the calendar.

We are a funny bunch in Australia, we like our motor racing history and having sundown as an enduro event should be the build up to bathurst.

Totally agree Danny. Nor should they have removed Phillip Island from the calendar, which behind Bathurst would be second on most driver's list of top tracks in the country. But, unfortunately, money talks.
