For me I would rather see Renee Gracie on a calendar in the garage where Chelsea's car is getting fettled :} but for a female driver the promotional picture is murkier.

Based on her social media activities, she doesn't seem to interact much if at all, with other members of the motorsport fraternity. Only other female drivers she seems to 'follow' on IG at least, are Danica Patrick, and SdS. Read into that what you will.

It's all starting to seem like she'd much rather be doing other things with her life. Like motorsport isn't her priority anymore. I follow other young up-and-comers, not just female ones... they're all out there chasing money, chasing drives in anything, and everything. Testing this, racing that. At the race shop, pitching in. Always trying to create new and potential opportunites.

I just don't see that in Renee anymore.

Agreed - with her obvious appeal and social media following, who wouldn't put her into their sports sedan, sprintcar, or whatever, giving her more sponsors to plus and new fans... I love guys like Paul Morris or Jack Perkins that will just go drive anything their bum fits in, and I do think it makes you a better driver.

Plus I tell you, I haven't driven any V8Supercar but I have driven a sports sedan and a sprintcar and you should never ever turn down the chance to drive something approaching 1:1 power to weight!

I've noticed a 50/50 split of driver who use personal accounts to flog the seat they're in and those who keep it to a minimum and have the team's feed doing all of that...

But then she could a driver who only does what's required to keep the sponsors happy and for what they have paid. Anything more and, no.....

Image Racing don't have a huge/regular social media presence, although VMS and Mr Jewell you may have thought would be keeping that sweet..

It's not just the sponsors they already have, they need to keep happy. They also need to operate to some sort of standard that entices new brands to come on board.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
BJR weighs up Pirtek Enduro Cup options

So 4 spots available (plus wild cards)

3 LDM
1 BJR

although potentially still a gap at Tekno

Meantime, there were lots of rumblings about the decision to put Mr Campbell into the #97 car for the enduros.

Early days of course, but 2 poles for the first 2 races for Porsche Supercup Here ain't half bad going!

Why does the biggest race on the domestic motorsport calendar need a "theme"?
