It all seems a bit strange, looking at the body language of Mr Lowndes and Mr Dane at the press announcement.

When did Mr Crompton, do his interview with Mr Lowndes?

Wonder if Mr Lowndes got tapped on the shoulder first thing Thursday morning, and told this is what is happening?

Might be easier to solve the Harold Holt mystery!

Lowndes did say that Roland would let him drive elsewhere if he wanted. That doesn't sound like a bloke who was 100% in control of the announcement?

I think it was more Roland's wish than Craig's. Again I noticed the comment of Roland letting him drive in other series as being key.

Perhaps the trouble with his kids' mum was one of the reasons he agreed to go?

I myself have left jobs over similar, when they start turning up unannounced and the like.

I will throw this concept out there. Penske pick him up for the Enduros, giving him an entrée to their sports car program in the US? A thought??

Personal problems can sap your focus and enjoyment and boy they don't come any worse than ex problems, and when you are tied to them with children it is a horror show. Add being a public figure into that and it is a nightmare
