What makes you think that? Surely if someone was prepared to put the money in both drivers would jump at the chance

I guess the lack of money is the issue (which may be the basis for your thought pattern) and i assume Harvey Norman would not want to be part of the plan.

Does anybody really think the Supergirls entry has any cred without Simona?

Renee obviously has enough talent and commercial nous to get onto the grid, and she has attracted some quality sponsors - but her performances have always been lackluster in my opinion. I'm guessing that Chris Jewell owns the 'Supergirls' concept, and I wonder who is waiting in the wings to support this?

Given the financial clout you could probably never do better than Katie Page with regards to this.
Sponsorship wouldn't be a big problem in this move imo Renee has always been able to attract sponsors very easily. But this is by no means an insult to Chelsea she's a good driver but I think she's too underexperienced,I feel it would be a better solution if they were to revive to supergirls persona and run at Bathurst that they should look for another overseas driver to partner Renee someone like Pippa Mann, Katherine Legge etc. would be good options

Honestly I am over Renee Gracie - I'd love to see the Supergirls concept continue, and for one of those girls to drive alongside SdS - but as stated previously Nissan may opt for someone with more local experience, so that means a bloke.

Renee's, and her management's problem is that they insist that (up til this year), she's the only female driver competing in Supercars.

This attitude will only get you so far in the sport. Marketing execs that have been involved with Supercars, will know that this hasn't been entirely true, and furthermore, the savvy ones don't suffer the fools gladly.

So tell me where Ms Angelo is supposed to fit within this mantra?

Ticks a lot of boxes already.

Has tar AND Bathurst enduro experience, media-trained, fitness, sponsor-friendly.

Could she tame a Supercar though?

Would love to see her have a lash at the 86 series to see how she goes!

I know she is lacking recent Supercars miles but Leanne Tander just won the Formula Fords last year, and has lots of laps around Bathurst?

Not sure Mrs Tander has that on her agenda now. Last I heard, she was going back into semi-retirement.

Big difference in commitment between semi-retirement from Formula Ford, compared to say, Mr Ingall's semi-retirement from Supercars.

That was nearly 6 weeks ago, and nothing mentioned since.

Even Ms Angelo herself, admitted there was nothing on the horizon as far as deals at this stage.

Known product for the Kelly's and Nissan. Top ten for 2 of the last 3 years. Low key, under the radar, takes no attention away from Simona, keeping his eye in with Aust GT.

Mr Russell has a personal sponsorship with Dayco. Dayco is also a sponsor of the Nissan squad. Perhaps one caused the other...

Certainly Dayco sits on the rear wing of #78 where the Lenovo brand sat in the launch pictures...
