Not many drivers are "picked up" anymore. The relationships with Mr Gommersall and Mr Rosenberg had been built upon over several years. Blokes with lots of money behind them, and a passion for motorsport don't come around too often. Could've potentially burned one or both, taking a deal elsewhere. Collectively as a unit, they've controlled their own destiny with this.
Does anyone expect a one-car MSR effort to work for him in the main series, beyond a year or two of learning?

He'll have to take a deal elsewhere and potentially "burn" them if he wants to win a championship surely?

I have been fortunate to have been in the F1 garages and they are totally focused on their own car.
Way back in the early days of the v8s running on the same program I guess the novelty was a factor and some extraneous team members and hangers on would watch.
If team engineers wanted to watch the supercars they have plenty of tvs within their garage and associated areas out the back however it is usually only a passing glance if anything at all.
If the days of the Adelaide GP were anything to go by, the F1 fraternity were far more interested in the Superkarts and Celebrity Races

Historic Touring Cars were popular.

No need to get ahead of ourselves!

Plenty of drivers making merry careers in single car teams -- the likes of Holdsowrth and Davison spring to mind.

Besides a Penske Falcon hypothetically has an advantage over their rival single car 888 Commodore teams, purely by being something different.

The kid seems to have the ability, and the team isn't full of dimwits either.

It's been said over the years, that it takes some time to learn the nuances of a Triple Eight car when extracting the most from it. They stepped up from an SBR relic into said Triple Eight chassis in 2016, and were putting it on poll and running at the pointy end for most of the season. I think they'll get a handle on the DJRTP car ok.

Tickford were on the Gold Coast promoting yesterday. Frosty was wearing a new Bottle O shirt. So I don’t see Bottle O leaving just yet.

Interesting that Chasports and 23RED are now pit buddies..

And that BJR is soooo far back in the queue.

At Bathurst, both Mr Moffat and Mr Gibson actively chose the pitbays at the entry to pit lane, not the exit.

We have worked out that the pit entry is not as good, too easy to get blocked in by the cars coming into the pits

Isn’t that what the email to Race Control is for?

Winterbottom: Wins key for new contract

Winterbottom will enter the new season with the same chassis he raced in 2017, which continues with primary sponsorship from The Bottle-O.
