simonracer should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I suppose money could be a factor in him coming here. I'd think that driving for the factory Aston Martin team in a professional class in the WEC would make you a reasonable amount of money but if it doesn't then I see why he'd want to come back here full-time.

And going by the Supercars article, Richie is only on a part-time schedule with Aston this year which has now finished. That would mean that his overseas schedule for this year would only have been comprised of 3 races (unless he's doing some running outside of the WEC). I know he isn't entered for Nurburgring round which is on this weekend.

Also, if he does abandon Europe and comes to race full-time in Aus & NZ then I'm sure he would have no problem getting a solid drive in the GT enduros or in the New Zealand tourers if he would want (or need) to do that.

i would say the Jason Bright deal would be like the one Charlie Schwerkolt Racing had as he is racing under Current team: Britek Motorsport

Super Black Racing will continue in the Supercars Championship next season following a change of ownership.
Speedcafe.com can confirm that Rusty French will buy the team’s Racing Entitlements Contract and continue to field a Super Black entry following the death of founder Tony Lentino in July.
Racing veteran and sand mining magnate French is already heavily invested in Supercars as a co-owner of Prodrive Racing Australia, which controls the #5 and #6 RECs.http://www.speedcafe.com/2016/09/30/...k-racing-sold/

Britek has a deal to be there, however Jason is a PRA paid driver and the sponsor is PRA provided

Agreed, getting better as the year goes on

good to back it up on the podium at Townsville

bit hard for a few of them in the older gen cars last year but now it seems to be a lot more even with only a few tenths seperating the top 5 in practice and qualifyng

I'm afraid to say it but its too late for Super Black to return. Why ditch Britek. Its not the most successful team but at that is a team that has been under FPR since 2005, it went to BJR but is back at its origin. PRA top end people really need to work out what they want to do, this is why they are so unsuccessful as a team. As it is DJRTP has had more success this year then PRA in the last 2 years, and its only half season

Is it the age of the PRA chassis that is the problem? How old is Bright's car?

Older then Frosty, Chaz and Cam's I believe, its Frosty's car from early last year which also ran in 2015.

Doubtful, COTF chassis are all the same... assuming they are repaired correctly after major crashes. It's bits bolted-on that count.

only thing is how much wear the chassis has had. Naturally something that is 3 years old isn't going to be as good as something built tomorow

I believe he's possibly destined for different pastures IF he moves. And a different marque.
