Coulthard + Golding would be a handy lineup for PremiAir Racing!

Though using outdated 888 customer cars would continue to be an impediment. Although, the presumably up-to-date Team 18 customer cars are not race winners either.

Should PremiAir racing purchase 2x as-raced 2021 888 cars, fitted with more modern componentry, or even seek an alternative technical partner OR purchase some CNC machines and develop their own componentry?

Given that it is effectively going to be a new team, even with two brand new, full spec 888 spankers PremAir Racing would still probably find itself in the back half of the field. This year is going to be more of a learning year, any movement up the ranks won't happen until 2023.

I wouldn't expect fireworks from them either. They won't be completely off the pace, but they need a bit of luck to break into the top 10. I wish them well, but it's gonna be a long process with development

The website has probably been like Renee Gracie's OnlyFans page and had a good number of curiosity hits, it is easy to understand why. The fact it is out of bandwidth is a good sign already and I'm sure that the required increase will be made accordingly

Yes, it probably isn't coping with the traffic and needs an update. Shows how well they've done to get people to follow their progress

Quite a strange turn of events for Coulthard. Not that many years ago he was a solid number 2 at DJR Team Penske, getting podiums and wins and even a championship leader for some time, while today he's without a drive after a completely anonymous season spent in a very low-tier team. Theoretically he could have a few good years ahead of him but honestly I doubt he'll ever make it - not in a top team at least.

Hopefully Fabs has dropped his resume into WAU for a codriving slot for the Bathurst 1000.

I have to agree. Not sure about Garry's talent long term but Pither & Garry are not going to develop a car and take it to the front.

This feels like more of the same.

Anyone notice PremiAir Racing "liked" everyone's negative comments on Facebook.

I just don't think both Garry and Chris will be top 15 contenders at best.

Without an experienced driver with in the ranks, they will always sit at the bottom. I like to be hopefull. But i just can't.

You’d think it would be smart of the ARG element of RACE to find the $$$ to put Coulthard into a TCR seat for this year

Is it really that good for guys who are not really committed to the series showing up the regulars so easily? I would think they should focus on developing their own up and coming stars, like they did with Brown.

If Coulthard does all the rounds, wouldn’t that make him a regular?

Dorna pulls strings to get out of work MotoGP riders into their other world championship, world superbikes, TCR is part of the Supercars stable now, use one to benefit the other.

A driver like Coulthard in the series only makes it better, I’m not sure how you could see any negative to it? Who cares if he beats Jordan Cox? Cox has to work harder to win the next one.
