Good to see some stability after their off season transformation.

All they need to do now is keep Betty away from the media and the chequebook, and they should do ok.

That's a bit rough. She's made some mistakes but everyone does. Apparently even I do.

Some mistakes... She purchased one of the sports best teams and turned it into one of the worst, while spending a massive amount of money doing so.

If that complete and total mismanagement of an operation calculates as "some", I would hate to see what sort of clusterfudge a lot of mistakes is.

Four cars, nine engines... They could put them on track for a DVS program!

Or they will make a nice preserved anomaly in the future anyway. Personally, I would return the Holdsworth and Davison race-winning Mercedes to their race winning liveries.

The running costs alone would steer potential leasees elsewhere.

I'm pretty I've read somewhere that Betty doesn't want them in Super2, and would rather leave them sit.

Whilst the Erebus Mercedes didn't live up to their potential, its a important chapter in the sports history. I like the idea of the two race winning cars being looked after for those in the future to be able to look at.

I cant wait til someone writes a book about that programme. Im sure it would make interesting reading..

I would buy that in a heartbeat, as long as it's well rounded and not focused on Betty's perspective. Sadly, I bet confidentiality agreements would stop any such book going ahead for many years to come.

I'm sure the story will come out given enough time. If her facebook page is anything to go by Betty will write a cookbook before any tome regarding Erebus.

Betty would need to decide which of her own stories she believes before she tried to sell it as the truth

I'd be more interested in the stories of her former employees during the MB era.
