On the flipside, having a boss you can't BS to, might help the team as a whole in the longterm.

I am pretty sure it ís. On the V8 website it í showing in the pay-per-view section.

Not quite... although it absolutely explains the revolving door of engineering solutions at the house of WP over the last 7 or 8 years...

Ryan needs to stop trying to live his Dads' life, and sell up and go and do his DJ thing or whatever else he does, and leave the racing to the racers.

Easy to think that if the merger took place 12 months sooner, that dud chassis would've never turned a wheel last year.

I think you're off the mark.

Really good football administrators are rarely footballers or coaches, but business people who understand recruiting the right people and implementing the right processes to get a successful result - and motorsport is no different.

You may well ask the question of exactly how engineering savvy Roland Dane is nowadays?

It takes all sorts.

If you can hand the engineering duties off to a trusty engineering director like a Patrick Head, while Sir Williams works the phones to ensure a full complement of stickers and drivers, that works too.

Even so, you will note in the earlier days Sir Frank sitting in on the engineering debrief between Australia's Alan Jones, Mr. Reuttiman and Mr. Head anyway, and more than ready to put his 2 pence in... https://youtu.be/QS4pejg43Ug?t=43m5s

This is why it is so amazing to me that the likes of Adrian Burgess and Campbell Little can't seem to hold onto a gig.

But look at the difference a Ludo makes. At least for half a season.

Well ok then, he's failed at that too. So doesn't understand the engineering side of it, and either can't get the right mix of people ( or can't give them what they need to do the job ), or can't implement the right processes to get a successful result. Whichever way you look at it, he's really not cut out for this game, Unfortunately really, because his old man did so well across many classes for decades.

It is, so to get back on track, it has been 32 years since a Touring Car support race at the AGP has counted for points towards a championship.

How different will the races be will points on the line?

The gloriously named South Pacific Touring Car Championship.

The series which began in the 60's supporting the Tasman Series was resurrected in 1986.

The AGP Touring Car race was round 2.
