peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Maybe with Ryan's massive passion for motorsport, his excellent business skills and ability to run a racing team he can join the Supercars Board

Maybe an offers been made for a stake in the business which is still being looked by Walkinshaw and Browns comments are there to try push the deal through. It's a minority stake not an change of ownership. Having Brown onboard would seem in theory to be a help in finding sponsors

You know it's going to be a fluff piece, when it takes the cover, instead of the enduro we just had. Not to mention the biggest stack of the year...

You would hope they haven't let the whole story go on their website before the paper comes out. Find out tomorrow..

Andretti Autosport + United Autosports @ Walkinshaw

In today's AA, Mr Branagan & Mr Knutson confirm that an ownership group comprising Andretti Autosport & Mr Brown's United Autosports appear set to take an ownership stake in Walkinshaw Racing for next season.

The article specifically quotes Mr Brown as having interest, and that his involvement would be with another partner (Andretti)

There is discussion about various Andretti management personnel being available for relocation to Walkinshaw to boost the ranks.

The article also suggests that an announcement should be in the works prior to Bathurst!

Yeah and that headline regarding ownership changes is a bit misleading. Sure a minor stake is being chased by Brown but nothing major such as that headline insinuates.

The article isn't specific on that.

What is interesting though is that WP is still sitting in the Linfox complex at Clayton when there was a big song and dance earlier in the season about relocating during the mid-season break to the new Walkinshaw Group enclave which was set to include their caravan business, HSV and the other automotive units of the company.

Perhaps it is staying separate still for a reason...
