Question TWR bankrupt

Ok so I have heard that TWR is going bankrupt due to the 20 million TW owes ford/cosworth for the engines he used last season. Would anyone like to shed somelight on what if any problems this may cause for HRO and HSV!


Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Even funnier if TWR and thus HRT go broke becaues of Ford Engines. Don't think it would happen that way however. Holden would surely bail out TWR Australia / HRO if they went broke because of F1 problems, they are just too valuable for Holden to lose. If anything it would possibly increase Holdens popularity because they would not be owned by a British millionaire anymore.

Theres an article in todays Herald with Crenno saying that they will not be affected.

HSV apparently wont be effected, but surely it has to have some impact on the fleet of TWR V8 Supercar Commodores?
From memory, I think that includes K-Mart Racing, Brock, and a few others?

Will be interesting to see if HSV/HRT are taken over by Holden, surely that would drain a lot of resources and money from them?
Maybe a not-so-dominant team perhaps?

Yes we can dream. If HRT goes down, it'll take HSV with it, and subsequently, Holden.
