Courtney confirmed in new Supercars Sydney team
Well, the much rumoured Sydney based new Supercars team has been confirmed, with James Courtney their lead driver.
It seems that Tekno will combine with the new team and expand to two cars (Tekno currently run one car). The team will use T888 built Commodores.
Second driver as yet confirmed but likely to be Richie Stanaway if the expected move of Boost Mobile sponsorship from GRM to the new team happens.
Sydney businessman and GT Racer Rod Salmon is underwriting the operation and is understood to be in the frame to purchase the second REC (Racing Entitlements Contract each car must have) One REC will come from Tekno. There are at least two available, from Tickford and T888 both having returned one when they respectively reduced their works cars for this year.
To be honest it is a bit of a half arsed team launch, with many of the details still to be announced... things like second driver, sponsors, let alone the team name all to be confirmed.

Of course Kelly Racing, currently running 4 x Nissan Altimas are the big unknown for next year with rumours suggesting they might ditch the Nissans and reduce to a two car team running outsourced Mustangs. As I say that is just rumour at this stage.
