The only news on the Motorist’s Party website is that they’ve got a new website.
But the Canberra Times has the news that Summernats front man Chic Henry is going to be a very effective celebrity candidate for the white-shirts.
Despite being associated with the Liberal Party over the years, Mr Henry said the Motorists were a natural fit for him.
“If you think about all the things I’ve been known for, at the end of the day, I love cars, I love driving my car every day.
“I love motorsports, high performance cars, I couldn’t have run Summernats all those years if I didn’t love what it was all about so I think (the Motorists) were a closer fit to what I was all about,” he said.
He’s going to run in Ginninderra, which will be an interesting squeeze play on the middle seat there.
