Lowndes’ two-year extension takes the now 43-year-old to the end of 2019, but he and team owner Roland Dane will hold a performance review at the end next year to gauge whether he runs the duration of the term as a full-time driver.

If Mr Lowndes is involved in the last race of the last round again, and is involved in an incident that may alter the outcome of the championship, Mr Lowndes might just be kept on..

Agree, that seems to be his role these days, why else did they keep him on in a separate team with his mainly poor performance this year.

Perhaps the market has spoken too, the ‘17 Lowndes Caltex Vortex chassis is still for sale at V8Sleuth...

Because he finished 4th in the 2016 title, and it makes no sense to punt a driver of his record after one poor season.

Besides, if Lowndes goes does that third entry even still exist?

Possibly not.... Without beating around the bush, everyone knows Craig is a cash cow, has always been a cash cow, and forever will be a cash cow.
Just like Brock, he'll end up getting wheeled out every now and again to sell more shirts or have another crack at something.

Old story floating around goes that when Craig found out the Skaife was getting a bigger cut of the merchandise sales back at HRT, he wanted in on that action...

I wanna know where the third WAU REC comes from.

Personally, I think these lists should be hinged off the likelihood of events actually occurring, rather than wishful thinking.

The track record of one car teams/small 2-car teams surviving in the last decade isn't great
