Holden now own HRT

BUT, the TEGA rules stipulate that a manufacturer cannot own a team! In order for HRT, KRT and Team Brock to race, they will need to get a concession from TEGA just to let them race!

If you ask me, letting the VY run with the old engine, letting 6 cars run for the same owner under a supposed '2 car per team' limit, and letting just one team run with different wheelnuts to any of the other teams are concession enough for me.

Ford should use this as an opportunity to either eliminate the other concessions, or come up with some concession of their own before they let Holden off the hook so easy.

This should be interesting. Ever since the EL won a championship Ford have let Holden get away with anything. Now's the chance to even the score Ford.

Now, I don't know who does the what ever this concerns at ford, they really need to do their job. Ford a being screwed over here, and publically doing nothing about it. I don't want to be a part of holden's floor mat.

About the only other thing that can be done to aid HRT is get the pace car on the track knocking off competitors. Not that they'd be better off but imagine the uproar if Ford bought FPV, Stone Brothers, Ozemail and ran them from the same stable.

Maybe they should be forced to float it on the stock market lol. I know it's a good opportunity for HRT to not be entered this year (if nobody buys them and they are not allowed to be owned by holden), but really... who wants to win when the best isn't there? It sure would feel very hollow to me if a ford won and there was no HRT.
