He was SEN this morning hinting that he wanted to do the Bathurst 12 Hour and get other seat time before stepping back into co-driving for Whincup at the 1000.
There are no other co-driver events slated for 2021.
I think Carrera Cup is more likely unless Triple 8 are gonna run three Super2 cars (they've already signed Feeney and Mozouris)

Lowndes also didn’t rule out the possibility of some Super2 guest appearances to help his transition back into the Red Bull Ampol Racing Holden Commodore for its last outing at Mount Panorama.
“We could do a couple of wild cards, from what I understand,” he said. “They definitely could be useful."

There we go... my spidey sense was tingling.

Craig Lowdnes - 1999
Garth Tander - 2007
Shane Van Gisbergen - 2021

5 race streaks - they are rare but not unheard of.
There are no 6s.

Nuts Rumour for Gen 3:
5.4L Coyote derivative
6.0L LS/LT derivative

What makes this even more nuts is that LS3 isn't even likely to be sold here in a new car. GM currently do not sell anything in Australia and while GMSV have planned to sell C8 Corvette, that was planned before they had a bust up with Walkinshaw Engineering.

I don't understand why they want production derivatives when GM don't sell cars and Ford put the 5.0L Coyote into their Mustang.

Supercars has today confirmed the Gen3 race cars are targeted for inclusion in the Repco Supercars Championship in August 2022.
...
Supercars thanks fans for their ongoing interest and looks forward to showcasing the various stages of the Gen3 program during upcoming broadcasts and the Supercars.com website and socials channels as we ramp up information and imagery surrounding the project.

Forgive my scepticism but these people couldn't organise a fry-up in a butcher's shop. Over the last 24 hours there's been rumour and counter rumour flying about regarding engine supplies and parity and I just think that Supercars management has got no idea what they're doing.

At this point, they should just adopt Gen 7 NASCAR as a pre-bought thing; with the Supercars rear wing on the back and call it a day. The average punter at home doesn't care.

Murphy/Stanaway as a wildcard for Erebus at Bathurst - #51.

Lowdnes is in #88. Tander is in #97. Ingall is in #39. Now all we need is Ambrose, Crompton and Skaife to start punching on in the booth.
