"Last year the team has competitively competed in BTCC..."

Did they? Did they?

The paddock can well do without them
Is that the shell that still is probably not paid for or competitive for that matter

It says a lot that after 3 days only 2 (rather silly) people have donated.

Surely they'd get a 'thanks, but no thanks' from Gow, like Chris James allegedly did?

That would be great to get an international tin top superstar in the series, although we'll probably never get it like the 90s where it reached EPL levels of foreign stars. But one or two wouldn't go amiss, might even encourage a manufacturer or two to enter

It would be nice if Courtney could dovetail a BTCC drive with an EU GT drive too. That would be tempting to make to move across. At the same time, not getting too excited, early days yet!

TBF BTCC would be an obvious move given Alan Gow is part of his managment team

I can't see it happen. His salary was reported to be well over 1 million AUD last year, that kind of money would pay a two car team in the BTCC. If he decided to leave Australia he'd probably end up in a GT works programme somewhere.

A whole 80 now... enough to hire a mini cab to drive one of their top quality pilots around the track for 2- 3 circulations before parking up on the grass.

If I were the mini cab driver I'd demand the cash up front, and to hell with going Sarf of the river...

I think I read that it was very close to a reality for this year, but they wanted to do it with very little funding and rely on the team running it...

I think for a team like Motorbase it could/would/should make sense. Will it happen? Almost certainly not.

KIA are heading for a largely SUV based range, they could do a Ceed or Optima based car, but their focus seems to be on the common thread that all manufacturers are pursuing these days.
