Two Supercar drivers and two differing opinions on the news that Garry Rogers Motorsport will be using Holden engines in the upcoming 2017 Supercars Championship.
Scott McLaughlin, who raced for the outfit for the past three seasons when they were running with Volvo power, is disappointed that the team has had to revert back to Holden rather than using Volvo. While it is not Rogers fault that Volvo are no longer on board, Scott looks at it as if the past three years is simply work down the drain and he is sad for everyone involved…
“Sad to see Garry Rogers Motorsport get forced to revert back to Holden's - a lot of hard work and results over 3 years flushed down the drain. I am sad for Garry but especially sad for GRM Workforce!” he said on Facebook.
Meanwhile, Garth Tander, who has signed on to race for the team in Scotty’s place, is amazed by the amount of work the guys in the team have done to get the cars ready in time to start the new season….
“Amazed by what the GRM crew have achieved over the last month prepping our Holden Commodores for the '17 season, can't wait!” Tander tweeted.
Whether it is a good thing or a bad thing, the one thing we must be grateful for is the fact that the team will still be here in 2017 and not sitting on the sidelines without an engine.
