Chad Reed to V8 Supercars? (merged)

Chad Reed has hinted that he would like to race MotoGP or, which he said he would perhaps like to do more, race V8 Supercars.

Personally I think the is no room for him in the current V8 Paddock unless anyone signs him because of his status (which may I remind you is mainly a US fanbase), so I don't think there is a chance of him racing here in the near future unless someone gets really desperate.

Aren't Yamaha a sponsor of HRT? Could we maybe see him as next years prize recruit, a la Courtney & Briscoe?

Wouldn't that be the 2008 list, after FPR poach him to replace Briscoe, based on Chad's performance in the 2007 enduros @ HRT?

If Bazz and Mick Doohan can hop from bikes into Supercars, why can't Reed to it?

With the late Gregg Hansford being the most obvious exception ???

Johnny Ceccotto did O.K. in a Touring Car. Graham Crosby was good.

Captain Chaos... Yes, I remember him all too well.

Not many bike riders have had a successful move to four wheels, except Valentino Rossi, who seems damn near invicible on two or four wheels.

I'd say Hansford made the transition easier & faster than some others.

A tragic loss, at a circuit that still has not implemented the Victorian Coroner's reccomendations, from the Hansford inquest.

John Surtees and Mike Hailwood spring to mind as well as good bike riders who turned successfully for car racing.

Johnny Cecotto, Wayne Gardner, Graeme Crosby and Gregg Hansford as mentioned all made the switch successfully as well.

Bazz had plenty of 4-wheel experience prior to testing the SBR Falcon, competing in the BTCC in 1985, he also raced Trucks in 1986 (in that case 6-wheel experience), and in later years doing major damage to one of Peter Brock's Ford Sierra in a testing accident at Winton.


On topic, i wasn't of the opinion that Chad Reed was all that serious when he made the comment.

What recommendations were they?
