HOLDEN expects to begin discussions about remaining in Supercars in 2020 and beyond early next year, maintaining that motorsport is still a key part of its brand.

The carmaker’s current deal with Triple Eight Race Engineering, its sole factory-backed representative in Supercars since the start of the 2017 season, expires at the end of the 2019 season.

“We’ll probably do that (open talks) with the team early next year,” Emma Pinwill, Holden’s general manager of brand, media and sponsorship, told foxsports.com.au.

F1 news 2021, Monaco Grand Prix, cancelled, Canada, Azerbaijan, reports, race calendar, latest

Published

on

Monaco Grand Prix organisers have insisted that the iconic Formula One race will go ahead this season, despite whispers that it would suffer a second cancellation in as many years.

Like the Australian Grand Prix last year, the Monaco edition was shelved due to COVID-19 as F1 decided to focus on ready-built circuits to fill the makeshift calendar, rather than temporary street circuits.

And with the Aus GP now being shifted from its traditional home as the season curtain raiser to a new November date, Monaco has now come under the spotlight.

A Dutch newspaper has claimed that Monaco, along with Azerbaijan and Canada, is in danger of being removed from the 2021 calendar as F1 again panics over the street races and the time it takes to build infrastructure for those events given the ongoing COVID pandemic.

It hasn’t all been smooth sailing since then, with the veteran facing a turbulent journey with mixed results.

Talking to FoxSports.com.au, the 32-year-old opens up on the decision to re-sign with Brad Jones Racing, what the future of Supercars could look like, and that disqualification from the 2020 Bathurst 1000.
