Supercars community reacts to GRM departure
Friday 18th October, 2019 - 5:19pm
A host of personalities from within the Supercars community have voiced their regret following news that Garry Rogers Motorsport will not carry on in the series next season.
A stalwart of the Supercars grid, Rogers won the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 in 2000, and was responsible for introducing a swathe of young drivers to the series.
I am gutted to that Garry’s time in @supercarschampionship has come to an end. The man and team that gave me and so many others the first opportunity in the sport, my first full time drive, first podium, first win, first pole, thank you for everything Garry and @grmotorsport pic.twitter.com/XiV5rpG6wN

Whilst there is plenty to be excited about in Supercars, this is a sad day and a loss for our category.
Congratulations Garry and Team for what your achievements over the years, your commitment, passion, and dedication shown for our sport. Thank you for your contribution. https://t.co/JKNrNrb0AY

@supercars Bathurst 1997 driving with Dad. grmotorsport gave me my shot and I haven’t looked back. What a massive team they have built over the and how many young guys that Garry has supported. It’s a real shame… https://t.co/uQMmAB4MBe
