Jonah Hutchinson, who has driven in the series twice before, backed up Elkins’ thoughts.
“I think is a good opportunity for people to drive for stables that they may not usually drive for and pick up some more outside drives,” Hutchinson (pictured) said.
“In past years, I have got drives for people I have never driven for before and that helps.
“It is a good chance to show what you can do.”
Hutchinson trains a team of 11 pacers himself, down from as many as 18 he had recently, after deciding to go out and train in his own right around two years ago.
He spent time across the border in NSW to try and gain as much knowledge of the sport before jumping into his own stable.
“I went down there to learn a bit more before I went completely solo training, just so I can get as much experience as possible,” Hutchinson said.
“I have worked for people like Grant Dixon, Shane Graham and Vicki Rasmussen - the big stables - I wanted to see what they did similar to put together my own training operation.
“We have got a good couple of owners now that back us 100 per cent.
“I had a month there when we won 11 or 12 races over a month, which we were really pleased with from 18 starters - that was a great month.”
Hutchinson kicks off the 2021 series tonight with drives behind Bonnies Cam and Groovy Miss Annie.
