Lowndes' Last Full Time Year In 2018?

Story Here

Likely to be a codriver for '19 if this is true, and would make a good pilot for a AGT team as well...

Presuming it's real...

Although they are probably the most up-Lowndes comments around, not talking up the future as hard as he always had.

A big call to be made next year sometime.

Who knows, perhaps his form will be more consistent across the whole weekend?

When it happens it will definitely be the end of an era.

If it's in 2019 though, that would be like Brock and Johnson retiring at the end of 1989.

Maybe you should rename the title GTRMagic, the first pargraph says:

Craig Lowndes has revealed that a performance review at the end of next season will dictate whether he remains in a full-time Supercars drive in 2019.
This is not saying he will not be racing in 2019, it means that he has a performance review at the end of 2018 to see if he will drive on in 2019, same as any other driver, footballer or any other person who are employed by contracts either party or both parties can put a performance clause in the contract.

Don't forget Mr. Bright and Mr. Tander still plugging around!

Could Mr. Campbell or Mr. Mostert be lined up to pilot the #888?

Possible to see Mr. Mostert moving back home in Brisbane. But most logical would be Will Davison in the #888 car since he's the most familiar at the moment with Triple Eight equipment plus he's good friends with Shane and Jamie. (Plus when Jamie and Will started out shared a house on the Gold Coast)

I'd say without Lowndes the third car in the team doesn't exist.

It reads to me like Lowndes expects to be in the car two years, Dane expects him to be in the car for two years, but if they are having a shocker next year and don't want to continue, there is a part of the contract that addresses that.

Nothing in the article suggests he is "likely to be a co-driver in '19"

I don't think Lowndes will leave, he never once mentions leaving, he says the team will evaluate, which is what all teams have always done, another article blown out, he has been evaluated last, year before that. Part of the way teams operate

Lowndes' Last Full Time Year In 2018?

Pretty much. No Lowndes. No Caltex. No third car.

Lowndes is a licence to print money as far as merch and sponsorship goes. You go to any Supercar race and whose garage do you find a lot of fans hanging around? I'd say unless the results go south in a big way it's his choice.

When he stops full time I'd be highly surprised if they kept running a third car and with Lowndes gone they'll have to replace Caltex.

The only reason the third car exists is because of Lowndes. This is fairly well-known in the industry.
