Still no word on the simpson car and TBL though so maybe just maybe Dynamics have bought it back and are just waiting for budget etc to be in place.

Also I reckon now we will see Collard in the 3rd focus.

I think we can safely say no Flash at Motorbase if he is doing some testing while Neal is recovering. They will probably also keep him on standby in case Neal ainít fit for the first race

Does it? Many a driver tests for one team and ends up driving for a different outfit when it all plays out.

I'll rephrase that to he's back in some capacity at least.

Maybe Dynamics swooped to stop him signing for Motorbase after Mat Jackson debacle a couple of years ago. #conspiracytheory

Dynamics could maybe "loan" the TBL from Simpson and put Shedden in FK8

The announcement is for me an indication that Shedden is not moving to Motorbase. Being just a test driver can't be a dream scenario for him but maybe he'll be waiting for Neal's retirement at the end of 2020? Or maybe Dynamics could really loan the Simpson's TBL?

I think Shedden's confirmation also means there'll bo no one high-profile in the third Motorbase car.

Where is the money to run it? If it was a new sponsor I cant see Halfords being thrilled

Is there even a fk8 available to put him in, btc racing have the latest shell that has been built and thereís probably not enough time to build a new shell before the start of the season

Id say the opposite, Motorbase currently have no car to test, Shedden has a long standing relationship with Dynamics which will give him chance to get back up to speed (as if he needs that)
Dynamics get their recent car developments tested by an experienced hand
Shedden gets to blast the cobwebs away and reacquaint himself to a NGTC car
Motorbase get a driver who may be able to help develop the new car with the currently leading FWD car as a yardstick

Who's to say Dynamics haven't built a new FK8 and are expanding to three cars?

Maybe they have Simpsons TBL and a new car.

They did expand briefly to three cars before having to jettison the fantasist cockwomble Andy "not paying my bills" Neate.
