I take it by your lack of interest to discuss that topic and just attack the poster based on one sentance out of one paragraph out of one post that you agree with the rest,

Well done, good to have agreeance with you

but yes fans have been telling Lucas to sell his team for months now, why should Ryan be different

Peckster to be fair your whole post was negative about Walkinshaw and that one line quoted on it's own was certainly a stand out.

What if, they are making a profit?
What if the racing team combined with the road car division works to keep the entity in the profit?
What if the race team combined with the support the give to other teams is enough to keep them n the profit?

I don't have the answers to those questions but there are plenty of possibilities.



I met Ryan once and he LOVES racing.
They were once dominant and it may never happen again, but they aren't the worst team by a long stretch.

You could argue that a lot of teams should be sold because they aren't T8 or DJRTP right now.

If I'm understanding this current tangent correctly, LDM should be banished from competing in anything. Yes? No?

Settle.

I think it's a fair point for 155 to make, the idea of simply giving up and selling a team because things aren't going well runs against the grain for me personally but really it's not something anyone on the fan side of the fence should be calling for. Ultimately Ryan Walkinshaw may decide to do just that but it'll be his call based on how the business is sitting overall, same as it is Lucas Dumbrell's business what he does with his team.

Yep, their performance is a long way from great at the moment and no doubt they're feeling lost but it sounds like they're trying to work the problem rather than simply giving up - kudos to them for that.

Long way back from here and we've seen that even with the might of Penske behind them, DJRTP took 3 years to get back to the front - if it was easy everyone would be doing it.

Lastly, slightly pedantic point (sorry) but there's no such word as "agreeance" - I can see what you're trying to say but the correct word is "agreement".

LOL ... you don't know how many times I've said that to people, or yelled it at the TV! Until one person challenged me to prove it, and I reverted to Google - to my embarrassment. Perhaps anyone that uses it is of historic French background, or may be a Kiwi. Whatever, it still doesn't appear in my 1964 Oxford Concise or 1982 Macquarie dictionaries, and that's good enough for me.

Yeah that's exactly the same story that Pecky linked a few hours ago.

To answer your question, let's hope so for their sake, the package is clearly lacking and improvement is sorely needed.

I'm not convinced it's lacking as much as they don't understand it and how to manipulate it to driver feedback and desire. Let's hope they learn something in the next test because the sport is only better with more teams being in the running for genuine podiums

Not the only team running next Tuesday but the weather forecast makes it a 50/50 proposition.

Will Nissan test that day? Be interested to see how closely Courtney watches their progress.

Are we assuming Courtney was smart enough to put some performance clauses into his latest WP contract?
