He is not just turning up with a bunch of family money with the family business plastered on the side of a car.

He has positioned himself as the everyman, In a time when all of us who ever dreamed of becoming a racing driver see the massive amount of money required to just get a drive, and seeing the sport becoming a rich man only playground. He maybe gives hope that still making it on talent and hard work is possible for someone like us average joes's to make it.
Beautifully put. Plus he's won a championship against some proven dudes, so the talent is clearly there too.

Well if they go all the way to 2020 they might nearly be old enough, 5 seasons as an FG, and a further 6 seasons as an FG/X is a VERY long time....

New Chassis In Build For BJR

A newby for Mr Slade, a newby for Mr Percat, and an update on Mr Blanchard’s low mileage ‘17 car... all with KRE power...

No noise around a sponsor for #8 however...

Where does it capture the Walkinshaw brand? The helmet from HSV maybe?



I really hope the new venture pays off for WAU and brings them back up the front.

Any new company formed is going to need a lot of background material such as articles of association, list of shareholders / directors in place etc - often takes a little time after the initial MOU and public announcement to do all that.

Part of that is having the logo - any presentations to sponsors need the logo, letterheads used for communication with various bodies need the logo, various merch and promotional material will need the logo as a starting point so that designs can get underway. Government agencies often insist that companies provide information on letterhead to prove that it is authentic for example.

Having the logo is most definitely a priority - amongst a long list of prioritised items no doubt but NOT having the logo done would hold up a lengthy list of jobs that need doing.
