Holden re-allocates V8 Supercar funding

http://www.v8supercars.com.au/conten...ercar_funding/

Quote:
Holden Motorsport Manager, Simon McNamara, has denied that a re-evaluation of the allocation of money to V8 Supercar teams is a direct result of the economic downturn.
A recent media report stated that only the two Walkinshaw Performance teams along with Supercheap Auto Racing (SCAR) and Team BOC would receive direct funding from Holden.
Quote:
McNamara said Holden allowed teams – including Sprint Gas Racing (SGR), Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM) and Rod Nash Racing (RNR) – to remove its signage in order to court more sponsors for the 2009 Championship.

So really this is no different to what Ford has done with its teams. so are we headed back to the days when there were 4-5 cars at the top and the rest had no chance.? at least in the last couple of years we had a few teams that were getting in the big teams face's

Ford told the journos, Dick didn't know he got cut until he got a call from the newspapers!!!!!!!!!!

Rocks harder is right: he's just spinning it best for Holden ......... Ford had the back page of the papers saying they'd dumped Dick, Holden had page 10 of the fishwrapper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure he'd be pretty thicked skinned and a jellyBelly's opinion wouldn't matter to him

with a re design of the front grill with some thing like clear shield a team could use the front of the car for a major sponsor

This would be a good idea but wouldnt it block airflow? You would have to spray it on the grill i think

“We’ve changed some of our business operations based on the fact that we have reviewed teams against key performance indicators”, McNamara stated.

"That's why we've hitched our wagon to BJR's undoubted pedigree", he added.
