ford71 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
According to my son, Stanaway showed up in Fortnite tournaments directly after retiring from V8SC.... could've been him I guess....

Yes but I haven't heard any confirmation of whether he fully recovered.

I would have thought after 2 years or there abouts he would be fine.

time will tell

Mostert inks multi year extension at WAU.
Puts paid to any thoughts of him being the natural choice for JW's seat at T888
Mostert seems very happy with the way things have panned out at Clayton and has signed until at least end 2023.

Anyway Mostert staying at WAU opens up the V8SC driver market for 2022, and 50% of the grid is out of contract end of this year.

That does of course mean there is roughly half the 2022 grid still to be sorted in the coming six or so months…

Current status of the market beyond this year (info from Speedcafe) follows

Interestingly Kostecki (Brodie) I had always considered a hot tip for the T8 seat, has been confirmed as locked in to Erebus for 2022.

Cam Waters must be up there with a chance there. Apparently he is out of contract come season end. Interestingly, the only driver Tickford have locked in for next year is Thomas Randle, who only has a co driver gig this year.... Tickford will be very keen to retain Waters.

I have highlighted those names not contracted. The two biggest names up for grabs are Waters and Heimgartner. Courtney, Pye ,Hazlewood Fullwood, Le Brocq in the background. Plus a few 'gridfillers'.

Team by Team


Triple Eight Race Engineering

Under contract: Shane van Gisbergen (through 2023)
Retiring: Jamie Whincup

The #88 seat is the obvious key to the driver market, with Triple Eight weighing up various options to succeed seven-time champion Whincup. The team’s Super2 protégé Broc Feeney is among the chief contenders.

Dick Johnson Racing

Under contract: Anton De Pasquale, Will Davison (contract length uncertain)

Having run Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard as team-mates in four consecutive seasons, there was a double change at DJR for 2021, with both De Pasquale and Davison believed to have joined on multi-year agreements.

Tickford Racing

Under contract: Thomas Randle (through 2022)
Free agents: Cameron Waters, James Courtney, Jack Le Brocq

Ironically, the team’s only contracted driver for next year is the young gun without a current drive. Waters’ signature is considered top priority, having evolved into the team’s clear ace. Tickford may yet expand to four cars for 2022.

Walkinshaw Andretti United

Under contract: Chaz Mostert (through at least 2023)
Free agent: Bryce Fullwood

With Mostert extended as of this morning, focus switches to whether Fullwood will continue in the #2 or whether there’ll be a new face here next year.

Team 18

Under contract: Mark Winterbottom (through 2022)

Free agent: Scott Pye

Winterbottom was confirmed last October to be driving past his 41st birthday, which falls next May. Pye meanwhile has matched up relatively well against ‘Frosty’ and has already signalled his hopes of a contract extension.

Kelly Grove Racing

Under contract: David Reynolds (through at least 2022)
Free agent: Andre Heimgartner

KGR is wary of rival interest in Heimgartner, who last month became a Supercars Championship race winner. The Kiwi is known to have a strong degree of loyalty to the Braeside outfit, but could the prospect of a top drive lure him away?

Erebus Motorsport

Under contract: Brodie Kostecki, Will Brown (contract length uncertain)
Erebus CEO Barry Ryan has declared both drivers have arrangements in place for next season.

Brad Jones Racing

Under contract: Nick Percat (through 2022)
Free agents: Todd Hazelwood, Macauley Jones
Uncertain: Jack Smith

Percat was extended early last year, having established himself as the team spearhead. Hazelwood has briefly spoken about his future hopes; Jones is working on moving his way up the pecking order; and Smith’s father Pete owns a Racing Entitlements Contract.

Matt Stone Racing

Free agents: Zane Goddard, Jake Kostecki

MSR enjoys a good relationship with its two SuperLite programme graduates but has yet to lock them in. Like Tickford, they may have an additional seat next year, pending how the tender situation around shelved RECs plays out.

Team Sydney

Under contract: Fabian Coulthard, Garry Jacobson (both through 2022)
Jonathon Webb put a premium on stability by signing his 2021 recruits to two-year deals.

Blanchard Racing Team

Under contract: Tim Slade (through 2022)
Tim Blanchard has confirmed that Slade will remain in CoolDrive colours next year.

Mr Percat has ruled himself out of the 888 seat according to Speedcafe.

Likewise I have ruled myself out for driving 888 next season.
