Can they somehow blame him for the munted car?

Supercars have confirmed it:

Despite the hype, did Mr Burgess really 'triple 8' the WP operation?
His big role this year was to design & move MHSVR to their new digs.

Can't say its a shock...

Needed to happen, they need new direction to develop the car into something competitive again. Burgess had the chance and wasn't able to deliver sadly.

Now the hope is the replacement will bring fresh ideas which are more in tune with what is required for success in the sport. That won't be easy...

COugh not likely.

They spend their money there whilst I crew. Better option

Double strange...
Its from Wikipedia though so the veracity of that claim wants a review
but
When you look at Wikipedia there is no mention of a parent.

Lets blame Mr Google for a snafu.

Sort of

Did John Briggs get much more than a car and a driver when he bought CAT Racing?

Might this be the beginning of an exodus from WR?
