Boost Mobile’s founder is lobbying Supercars to take over the dormant 26th Teams Racing Charter, which would allow an extra car on the grid.

If he succeeds, he plans to be fully involved in the competition, which Stanaway will compete in, while he wants Murphy as a team principal.

Earlier this month, Stanaway and Murphy teamed up in a wildcard competition backed by Boost Mobile and Erebus..

Aderton says he has an international co-driver to partner Stanaway at next year’s Bathurst 1000 Murphy has officially hung up his helmet.

A technical partner would likely contribute to Boost Mobile’s permanent involvement in 2023, although Adderton wouldn’t say which team it would work with.

This is not the first time Aderton has tried to start his own team in 2019 were unable to purchase contracts for racing rights.

Thanks to a change of ownership last year the input process has now changed, REC is replaced by TRC.

Supercars still holds one TRC and can now transfer it without the approval of the entire series.

However, competing teams will still be involved in the process, given that it will be discussed at the commission level, even if the outcome will technically only be a recommendation.

As part of this latest race bid, Adderton pledged to race without accepting guaranteed income from the TRC for two years.

Boost Mobile’s stand-alone recording push follows a promise to drop Boost support from Supercars later this yearafter a photo of Supercars chairman Barclay Nettlefold at the Walkinshaw Andretti United Optus event surfaced online.

This is despite Boost being the official broadcaster of Supercars.

According to Adderton, he will drop his threat to pull out of Supercars if the category comes to the party and hands him a 26th TRC.

An online petition calling for Supercars to sell TRC to Adderton has already garnered more than 3,000 signatures.

“I’ve made it clear to Supercars that we’re not happy and if they’re going to treat us like this then we can spend our money somewhere else,” Aderton told the Castrol Motorsport News podcast.

“Looking back since then, Supercars got in touch and we had a dialogue with them and discussed things.

“I don’t think they want us to leave, but now it comes down to I need my team, we want our [TRC].

“I think the fans want it. What frustrates me is that you have 25 cars in the starting raid and probably 10 of them are real and the rest are mostly just rental cars.

“I think they need to have more teams and more teams like Boost and we want.

“So, yeah, if we can make it work and it works for us as a brand and it works for us as a team, I want to do it.

“We’ll put Richie in the car, I told them. I will send them a letter asking them to receive [TRC]be it rented or bought.

“I’ve got a really cool person that I’m talking to internationally about doing a coxswain for Bathurst, which I think would elevate the sport.”

​Although TRC’s revenue is no longer tied to the number of recordings, Adderton remains adamant that finances are at the root of the perceived reluctance to serialize it.

That is why he has vowed to race without profit for two years, the main benefit of which will be felt by the Supercars, who will not have to shell out for additional TRC payments.

“A lot of teams are saying, ‘We don’t want to sell him because that’s when we get our money.’ [diluted]— “I don’t need your $650,000 or whatever,” said Aderton.

“I will not take the proceeds for two years. They can rent it to me.

“I honestly believe that teams are afraid. I think teams like the rental model. I think most teams don’t want to fight us.

“I said to someone the other day that I’m obviously very confident – if you want to shut me up, give me a racing team and then beat me on the track.

“They don’t want to beat us on the track. They know what we’re capable of and they know that when we enter the race, we’re going to give it our all. I don’t think they want the competition.

“If they want competition, let us in and let’s work it out on the track. I would be more than happy to settle down at the track with the teams.

“We just want to go out and we want to race and we’re either good enough or we’re not good enough. To me, if they’re afraid of competition, they should get out of the sport.”

On facilitating entry, Aderton said: “I think initially we might do a technical partnership, but it will be autonomous – it will be ours, we buy the car, we do all that and then we basically time it.

“We know exactly how it will work. We are ready. Now it’s just a matter of getting Supercars and the teams to say “okay, Aderton can race”. And if they won’t let me race, then they’d better tell us why.”
