Any news on HRO decision?

So has anyone heard what is happening with HRO racing this weekend?

They'll be hitting the track tomorrow and I still haven't heard any word about the Holden ownership issue yet...

Will they be racing? Will they be punished?

Some decision has been made and they are suppost to be racing at adelaide.

The latest rumour from conrod is that P Brock will take control of HRT and TB, while G Murphy maybe take control of K-Mart. Also rumour that Holden aren't happy with some people in HRT and they will be cleaning house. DON'T take this to be true as it probably ISN'T!

I heard on the radio news this morning that all six cars will be allowed to race.

Yep they just let them race, nothing has changed. This is such a load of crap, so much for enforcing the rules.

What a bunch of soft cocks TEGA have proved to be.

And where is that hypocritical Farkhead Larry Perkins with his legal challenge to anything?

I hope SBR or DJR or one of the other big Ford teams has the balls to protest their inclusion and back it all the way to court.

Even if they race, they should be excluded from the points!

If they have been given the leeway to race, they should bnot be allowed to gain any championship points especially seeing the amount of points available this weekend.

FFS! I wouldnt have cared if they had just sold it off to some dodgey company that they made, but to still have ownership and have the rules bent for them if all f#$ked up!

“The board has been insistent that the rules must be upheld at all times,” O’Relly said/ Holden and Paul Weel Racing have recently been involved in restructuring.”
What a crock of shit this is...if the rules were being uphels, they wouldnt be racing

Quote:
There are two sets of rules being breached, the first involves manufacturers being banned from owning a team and the second is with regard to how many cars any one team can run. At present, Holden runs six cars, two more than allowed under the agreement.
So they obviously admit that they are breaching the rules, but still let the game go on

Quote:
It is understood that Holden motorsport’s Ray Borrett, who inherited the management of the three teams just prior to the Grand Prix meeting, has been working on ways to offload the Team Brock outfit, and then find a new owner for the other two teams.
How many more race meets will the excuse of "we're working on it" work? Long enough for them to abuse the fact that they have been let off for breaking the rules and doing all they can with the opportunity?

Perhaps Ford were consulted at the corporate level and said let them race. There will be many things going on behind the scenes that we do not (maybe will not) know of.
