CCWS Off Season Thread

If the regulars aren't too opposed, I'll open an off season thread. Don't know where else to post some stuff.

An interesting read on Dillon Battistini's (and Ernesto Viso's) test with Minardi at crash.net.
Quote:
Although the grapevine suggests that Minardi will run both 2007 pilots, Robert Doornbos and Dan Clarke again next season, there has been talk of a potential third car, and Battistini is keen to add his name to the team's shopping list.
There's talk of a third car at Minardi? First I'd heard of it...maybe a different thread.

Rumours discussed elsewhere suggest PT might be pushed out at Forsythe.

Isn’t he on a long term deal?

That would mean a big contract pay off, not a good thing for GF

He is on a long-term deal. I'm not sure what a payoff would be, likely have to be settled in courts. These suggestions apparently come from PT's mom.

Are there any rumours of potential new teams for 08 ??

we had a few jump up last year that didnt happen (Galles , Jensen)

I havent heard any new names yet.

and drivers too guys like Matos and Perara (sp) should get a run after good Atlantic form , so I guess we should be looking for those to to test soon as well (hopefully anyway , Matos especially as he has a nice cheque to take along , I know a Pay driver but a damm fine and deserving one )

I'm thinking it might be best for Tracy to drive in another team as the current situation doesn't appear to be working.

Dunno about new teams Marcus but a third car from Minardi works too, if they could pull it off. Perera was to test with Forsythe/Pettit last week, not sure how that went. And yeah, nothing new on Matos.

Don't worry, last couple of racing team situations did not work either. It is not the team, it is the driver in this case.

Havent seen the Tracy speculation, where it this being discussed.

Autosport notes that FPR has a holding contract on Perrera that would see him race in either their Atlantic or Champ Car stables.

Thanks, Fogel. Have seen the various internet sites discussing it.

Odd situation at the least.

Especially on face value.

Mom files grievances, and wages PR campaign on internet forum, at request of nearly 40 year old son. Indeed, very odd.

there was a programme shown over here a year or so ago that was like a documentary of PT and Forsythe over the season

his mother is always in the pits shouting like mad, perhaps now she's shouting for a new team to give him a contract
