A 26-car grid has been ensured for next season, with all RECs (Racing Entitlement Contracts) currently racing re-entered for the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

All current licences were committed by Friday’s deadline, meaning the grid will remain the same size next year.

The commitment to race does not confirm team structures or drivers for next year, as RECs can still be sold or leased with a further deadline of January to submit team and driver details for the season.

There are only 26 RECs available to race in Supercars, with Roland Dane buying the last available REC for 2016 to host Craig Lowndes in the third TeamVortex Commodore after James Rosenberg chose to relinquish his licence at the end of the 2015 season.
