HE does not know when it will happen, but Michael Anderson is confident his new Super2 team will "definitely go racing" in 2020.
Anderson's Bathurst-based team was poised to make its debut in the development series this season before it was shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Anderson is still awaiting confirmation of when that debut will come. Even though Supercars released its revised season program on Sunday - one which features two Bathurst rounds - support categories will be determined closer to events.
Still, the team boss is trying to remain optimistic as he contemplates racing in series which is ranked a tier below Supercars.
"We'll definitely go racing," Anderson said.
"Like anyone, I'd prefer to go racing, but the break right now is probably good because when we do go racing, it's going to be hectic, it's going to be a busy few months.
"It's good because we've been able to get everything car-wise 100 percent, everything else is working pretty well spot on."
While not contesting the season-opening Adelaide round, with star Dubbo teenager Tyler Everingham signed to drive and Supercars outfit Walkinshaw Andretti United offering its support, Anderson is excited to see what his team can do.
"I'd probably be the only person in the Central West to run a car with a Supercar team, that's something pretty cool," he said.
"A lot of teams in the series don't have main game affiliation, but that's the main thing you need as they've spent the millions on developing cars.
"It is going to be a cool thing with Walkinshaw and Tyler is a very talented racer, so once we go racing, we'll have some really good results."
When it comes to the Supercars series, which is set to recommence on June 27-28 with a round at Sydney Motorsport Park, Anderson feels Walkinshaw is a team to watch.
This season former Bathurst 6 Hour and Bathurst 1000 winner Chaz Mostert plus Bryce Fullwood will race the team's Holden Commodores.
Anderson says that Walkinshaw Andretti United - now in its third season - has the foundation to ensure long-term success in Supercars.
"I think going forward I think the American money is going to make a huge difference in Supercars, I think a lot of Supercar teams are going to find it hard moving forward," he said.
"Even Triple Eight moving away from Holden, they're not going to have the support categories, feeder categories and other businesses involved with them to keep them as successful as they are now.
"I think a team like Penske and a team with Zak Brown and Michael Andretti's influence like Walkinshaw, they're going to make it successful.
"I think the biggest thing holding Walkinshaw back the last few years was having a decent engineer and a decent driver and I think now with Chaz and Adam [De Borre] there - well first race Adelaide they went straight to the podium."
