According to "Bigpond Sport", JV is in serious talks with Paul Morris. He is talking about relocating his family IF they agree.
Some people will do anything to get a drive around Mt. Panorama in a V8 Supercar :lol:

LOGIC ????

Postby Julian Mayo » Thu Jan 29, 2009 6:11 pm

Okay, so our beloved V8Supercars are now going to be clean, green V8Supercars with the new Ethanol based fuel. The whisper is that most engineers have already recovered lost horsepower but, and this is what has me pondering the logic, the cars are going to use at least 30% more fuel to cover the same distance.
Now I was getting close to running out of fingers and toes, but I reckon that equates to 7.............that is SEVEN............pitstops at the Bathurst 1000 for even the leanest smoothest V8Supercar driver... :shock:
I think there will be some drivers under orders to shed kilos........ 8)

Garth Tander has just said a lot without saying a lot, in reference to one M Skaife's retirement. if you get my drift........
"I think there will be a lot more fun in the garage, and it will probably be a bit more relaxed..........................."
He is also looking forward to Will Davison's arrival, and says there is no reason why Davo can't beat him
" I think he can, we wouldn't have hired him if he wasn't good enough........" There is more on the team's new attitude in this weeks racing magazines.
Now that Mr Walkinshaw has sole control of the team, it will be interesting to see if the drivers get the cars under them to do the job.

Eric "The Hulk" Bana will make his Mt Panorama debut in the 12 hour classic later this month. He will pedal a Lancer.

Casey Stoner has beaten a top class field in an Ice Kart race, then went on to test a Kart saying....." In the distant future I'd really like to go to V8s and Karting is the way forward.".......................... :shock:
Move over Wayne Gardner.......... :lol:

Any word with what is going on with TKR? A couple of weeks ago David John made a comment "TKR not bankrupt, I am".

My opinion is that TKR should have been finished up a couple of years ago. :twisted:

I hear that selling signage on the car is the only way his drivers get paid for their services......a hard way to put food on the table............ :shock:
