Deal isn’t signed... apparently... but agreed to terms...

Maybe SuperCheap is also headed back to WAU, where it once ran for Mr Ingall..
Hard to believe anyone would currently turn down an offer at DJRTP, particularly for a place at WAU.

Is Chaz spinning yarns to sell more copies of AA?

You want to go to a clear number 2?

Scotty has spanked some pretty well credentialed drivers. Maybe his setups are like Frosty's or Skafe's, and nobody else can drive them.

Shell V Power Dick Johnson Racing Team Penske just announced renewals for each of Mr McLaughlin and Mr Coulthard.

Wonder if Mr Stanaway has been attending races with the team, being part of the setup conversations, keeping on top of how the team is going, generally being a team player?

Neck thing is clearly either a significant problem or a complete smoke screen but if he's been contributing to the team in a non-driver role, probably the former.

I wonder about this, as the input is only as good as the output.

One thing for sure, he can't slag off about it like he did with Tickford. Two car team, most experienced engineer in the field, GRM aren't going to mess around.

The sudden loss of speed could be down to the twin springs, but then again, with the most senior driver in the stable gone, who showed speed whilst his junior struggled to show the pace he had from Super2....Don't send a child to do a man's job....

if Boost takes over GRM like the jungle drums seem to say, will we have our next Craig Gore on our hands?

I don't think Mr Adderton has that kind of reputation.

I don't mean in the criminal sense, but the fly by night, burn everything down and not last very long sense.

I just don't know that I can see P. Adderton being the commercial brains and building a stable, quality team around him, he's too abrasive and thinks short term, and is too used to getting his own way.

I can see why Garry at this age would cash the cheque and run away but it isn't what I want to see for such a historic team.
