COVID-19 Impacts Auto Makers and Motorsport, and a new Nissan 400Z is coming?

Episode 1 of Auto Catch Up

For our first episode, Ashley Perkins, Joel Strickland and Mick McWilliams discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on automakers and dealers. With more postponed races, Formula 1 and other racing series move to host digital races. Could Holden be coming up short by only offering 5 years of Servicing instead of 10? And new filings show a new Nissan 400Z could be on the way.
