Not sure to be honest, quite possibly, although at that time you could run a couple of cars under the one franchise from memory, so the CAT car might have just run on the same franchise as the Supercheap Falcon's it joined?

In 1999 there were several classes of franchises, as RECs were then known. Level 1 for established teams that entitled them to enter multiple cars (it fluctuated from 2-4 at various times), Level 2 for one-car teams and Level 3 for privateers. IIRC, PAE (Caterpillar) and Briggs Motorsport (Supercheap) both had a Level 2s. When Briggs Motorsport expanded to a 3 car operation in 2002, it purchased Fred Gibson's Level 1 franchise.

Thanks anthony

What franchise did 00 Motorsport use in 2002 for their entries, after running as Gibson Motorsport in 2001 to run 1 car for Lowndes?

I'd have suggested Tekno, but that may not sit well with their Triple Eight relationship.

Is there that much bad blood?
No chance he returns to do his old job at 888?

I guess the point of my question is why the sudden departure.

It sounds to me as if he left rather than being pushed.

The question is where to. Could Erebus afford him? Could he go back to DJRTP?

Bob Forbes, who despite what was portrayed to the outside world, was actually the owner of Gibson Motorsport from the beginning of 2001, also owned a Level 1 franchise. In 2001 it underpinned the Rodney Forbes entry. Because up to 3 cars could be entered under one franchise, in 2002 Lowndes, Crompton and Forbes all raced under this franchise.

If there are other reasons other than those officially given, we will probably never find out, but the recent results and beneath the surface tensions that boiled over in Perth suggested a fall guy was needed. Bit like when a football coach gets the flick, not necessarily all his fault, but the buck stops with him. And dare I say, was probably on pretty good coin with a team that is not fully funded.

According to what Walkinshaw says it was rather Walkinshaw Racing's decision not to continue with Burgess. It somehow surprised me
