Just like Will Davison driving a Honda Motorbike while at Erebus according the Ten graphics. Even when he was personally sponsored by Ducati.

But then we don't pay for the Ten coverage...

I think you will find Honda sponsored that onboard camera, hence the the Honda logo.

It wasn't an error

And that driver was a few more positions down the first year he was with the team. Just goes to show the talent that he is, and how good the GRM chassis is in the hands of talented operator.

#33 was Leanne's number DVS when she drove for GRM.

He wasn't fussed either way.

As expected.

Likewise the uproar, due the fanbase's lack of understanding in how big business works, and of how Volvo goes about its motorsport...

The Supercars media machine didn't do much to help the situation either...

That Supercars does not add up for marketing value? Not for Ford, not for Volvo... A big problem for Warburton.

The catalyst for Volvo were changes in upper management in Sweden, along with other corprorate matters relating to Polestar and Cyan.

The V8SC program was a complicated arrangement that they had little control over, so naturally it had to go. It's marketability was actually very good, and the Australian arm has gone on record at various points during the three years, stating that enquiries off the back of their activation within the program, were on the up and up.

We can bash Mr Warburton over this until the cows come home, but it's unjust and innacurate. For Volvo Cars Australia, and GRM, it was a very successful campaign, and went against what the other manufacturers involved in the catagory were, and are, experiencing. As with most European-based car makers, the motorsport program is dictated from the very top of the corporation, not so much the marketing department. Ford Aus eventually went this way as well.

Polestar now going fully electric... Kinda odd for a performance arm.
