Toyota Pull Out of the ARC

Bates workshop is closed, all employees have been given redundancy packages.

Neal and Coral will contest Rally Tas in Feb, Rally of Canberra in March, and maybe Rally of Melbourne. All self funded though. No idea about Simon and Sue.

I would assume that they will attempt to fund themselves, but they wont be able to compete the way they have been over the past few years.

Its very sad for Neal, but from a different perspective, it might end up being the best thing for the sport, as the ARC idiots in charge can look at the mess the sport is in and hopefully fix it from the ground up.

Awsome, another great move to enhance reputation, now does that mean Evans and Bates have to fund themselves?

Its got nothing to do with reputation, its all about the fact that the largest car company in the world in losing money for the first time in its history. Its all business, and from a business perspective they need to look after there best interests. I would imagine that they will pull out of F1 fairly soon as well.

Look at the WRC, is anyone saying Subaru has ruined their image by pulling out? How bout Honda with F1?

Exactly.

Could you imagine being fired cause your boss can't pay your salary, but find out they are still spending millions on sports? You'd be pretty p!ssed
