YES! It appears there was some mischief making going on for some strange reason in the Wikipedia sites for Walkinshaw Racing and Scott Corporation.

Both sites have now been changed since this time yesterday..

Clearly they need a change of technical direction, so nothing will change unless that does.

They did that last year, and made no impact.

WP needs a Ludo-like character to be technical director. Not sure who is hanging around with that capability. Yet GRM have proved this year, a group of young, hungry players not afraid to work hard can caise miracles

How long before JC follows him out the door?

They arrived at the same time, doubt this will inspire JC to hang around.

Could he leave soon, if things don't improve?

Also harder now that they dumped ATB, and need to replace him.

Probably more urgent to change team principal thought....

Didn't Courtney arrive in 2011?

To where? Erebus? How many teams are willing to pay Courtney what he wants for the few results he's achieved? I'm pretty sure 888, DJR/Penske, GRM, PRA and BJR are happy with who they have.

I know it'd take an injection of funds, but a second JC/ATB Tekno car could work.

That's if JC wants to move, I'm not sure he would, seems like the Walkinshaw lifestyle is right up his alley, no matter what the results or if ATB is there.

Maybe as a replacement for the current pilot, rather than a second car?

Erebus would be a good fit. Courtney brings the sponsor Boost Mobile, so it may be more cost neutral than you are implying.

I think you mean Didier Debae. He's a top bloke. Not sure if Aussie might be for him anymore though

Ironic that with the forecasted wet weekend ahead, Walkinshaws could have ran the *******-child chassis and probably been no better or worse off.
