The first race meeting can't come soon enough for me. Then at last we should have something proper to discuss instead of all this driver handbagging!

Apart from the fact that he's much higher up the order than would usually be, we saw it with Jake hill when he almost threw his first win away at knockhill on the last lap.

What about James Cole? He normally had some decent backing, won in RWD but would Ticketmaster of been hit too badly in the pandemic too?

Sadly I believe it is Josh who's struggling. Bert has been pushing out the whole sponsorship package options to anyone and everyone.

As mentioned elsewhere in the thread, he's not the only one, someone's much anticipated return to the series is possibly in doubt. Already lost a sponsor pre-season, so is facing a battle now.

I know of a couple of others who've lost deals but have either been able to re-work other deals or are on a wing and a prayer, sadly.

Damn, losing half of last year's top 4 would be a big blow.

Guess that's Mat then.

Reminds me too much of 09-10 when many top drivers were struggling for deals. Then again we had a great season in 2009 and some close action in both, so all is not lost
