Adderton v Webb? Neither wanted to accommodate the other?

Boost have confirmed they are out of Team Sydney as well, with no backing for any replacement at Team Sydney... but they will back James wherever he chooses.

Adderton had a bit to say about Team Sydney too.

Depending how impactful the rotating sponsor model at BJR may be, it may be an opportunity to get Boost branding aboard one of the 2 main cars, with the brand name pilot steering, while one or other of the current main game pilots wanders up to step into the primary customer BJR car.

Arguably no downside... (displacing one Boost driver for another too.. perhaps)

Wonder if Mr Courtney is still drawn towards team management..

Mr Seamer must be moderately concerned at developments around Team Sydney also..

The whole thing has been a bit fishy for awhile, from being on then off to back on, to the amateurish unveiling of the Coke sponsorship when it was trailered without a cover. Not the way Coke would normally make a sponsorship announcement, you wonder if there was anything much more than keeping the drinks fridge at the track filled. Noticed the truck was still carrying Tekno signage at Adelaide, have they relocated to Sydney after round 1 as planned or still on the Gold Coast?

Last year Adderton was pushing a youth policy squeezing Tander out of GRM in favour of Stanaway, this year his beneficiary is the oldest driver in the field. Go figure

So where could JC land in the enduros? 888, DJR and WAU have all confirmed their line ups, although obviously these can be fixed with money.

Think he has bigger problems than a back of the pack team disappearing, nonetheless a field down to 22 won't be a great look if Tekno falls over.

According to Auto Action the deal isn't really with Coke, but rather with one of their distributors (who is linked to Chris Pither).

With their history of alleged arrogance & alleged non-payment of driver salaries, appearance of an ego clash with Mr Salmon & Mr Smith torpedoing the original Team Sydney setup & seemingly claims from Mr Webb junior of lack of media contact, Mr Fogarty simply aligns with the feeling of many in the paddock re the Webbs.

He is still managed by Alan Gow, who runs the BTCC.

The ongoing winter mystery in BTCC is who will drive the 3rd Motorbase Focus...although JC has never raced FWD

Shocker.

Courtney and Boost out of Team Sydney. https://www.speedcafe.com/2020/02/29...s-team-sydney/

The Boost comments sound like they are hunting for a drive outside of Supercars. https://www.speedcafe.com/2020/02/29...f-team-sydney/

I felt like in the races Courtney was getting up to speed, but must be bigger issues in the background. What next for the team?
