Yes have to agree with you bazil. Like him, or hate him, you have to give the man credit for putting his $$$ where his mouth is.

We cant afford to lose too many cheque books of this size.

Good point indeed, he may have been controversial, (although it has given more publicity to the sport whether good or bad) but the financial contribution has been helpful to the sport.

Not gone, yet

Craig Gore has just releases a statement denying that he's pulling out of the sport.
He's looking at his options but he says that if the Indy race continues so will he.

Quote:
I have not made any announcement regarding my retirement from motorsport, said Gore.

I did state that I was taking time this week in Byron Bay to reflect upon things and my future after a life threatening illness and that if it came down to having to make a choice, I would prefer to spend time with my kids rather than go racing. I made no comment of whether I discussed this with my family or close friends. I considered this conversation to be in confidence.

I also stated that I had discussed my position with my partners, Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser.

If there is a Surfers Paradise IndyCar Series event I will work with my current partners to bring Team Australia to the event with Will Power as our driver.

I have no control and no influence over the event, the possibility of the IndyCar Series competing at Surfers Paradise or the continuing negotiations.

I have and will continue to support the event and the team in any way I can until the outcome of these negotiations is clear.

I did state that I had considered this event to be my last if there was not an outcome that would see the IndyCar Series return to Surfers Paradise.

I also stated that I was not using this to bluff either the State Government or the Indy Racing League into reaching an outcome.

I deeply regret this attention, which may have had a negative impact on the IndyCar Series, the event and the many great sponsors of our team. Most importantly I deeply regret any impact this may have had on the team and its partners.

I am disappointed by the reports in the media today but it would not be the first time I have been disappointed by the way media has dealt with my answers. For the record, I was answering questions asked and there was no announcement being made by me.

Giving up is not my style and I intend to fight and offer any and ll resources to help keep this event on the Gold Coast and to develop Team Australia into a championship-winning operation.

Abit of a statement there bazil.

What grounds do you have to make a statement about how much effort (whether it be $$$ or time wise etc... each as important as the other) someone on this forum puts into motor racing, be it DRT or anyone else??

Bazil just because a sponsor or individual makes financial contributions through team ownership or sponsorships does not make up or take away from there other comments/actions. Mr Gore invested alot of money into Motor Racing to further his business not out of the goodness of his heart. WPS was a great supported of motorsport but this does not mean he bought our silence, he is open to criticism like all others.

In my opinion there was a lot to criticize.

What an incredibly daft thing to say! Name me the sponsors who are sumping out out their cash, and not caring if they don't get some form of return on their investment. Wouldn't it be a wonderful world if we buggered off all of the people and companies that were just involved in motorsport as a business and not as a sport...

Now I don't agree with everything he ever did, but he invested millions and millions and millions into it, V8s, Carrera Cup, BIMF, Indycars, Marcos Ambrose...
