Supercars pay tribute to departing GRM

Some of Supercars' biggest names have paid tribute to Garry Rogers after the Hall of Famer confirmed he would walk away at the end of 2019, ending 24 years in the category.

Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM)'s entries were a glaring omission when submissions for the 2020 Supercars season were made this week.

The writing was on the wall when GRM naming rights sponsor Boost Mobile last week announced it would pull funding unless Supercars introduced more control components to ensure a level playing field and save team costs.

While not totally unexpected after Supercars did not meet the sponsor's demands, touring car mainstay Rogers' confirmation he would pull his team out of the category in an emotional speech to his staff on Friday still resonated throughout Australian motorsport.
