Hopefully the Mustang can do the business. We’ll see what tweaks it can come up with

Speedcafe reporting that Gisbergen has had some surgery, after a mountain bike accident.

Hopefully he won’t miss the Sandown round.

Barry goes off again

According to AA article. Barry claims the previous engineers and drivers don't work as a team and they all had big egos. ( Barry was the other engineer with the absence of Mr McV.)

Translation - Nobody would listen to me and it is my way or the highway.

I feel sorry for Betty and feel sad her enthusiasm and passion has left her with the team she has now, not through her own fault.

I would love to see Erebus fortunes improve, but not for any reson other than Betty, who has been a breath of fresh air amongst the Danes and Edwards of this world.,

Yet she started with Stone Brothers Racing -- a championship winning Queensland team, with many sponsors, including Irwin Tools, SP Tools, Lucky7, Fuchs, and a complete Ford Falcon FG COTF prototype?



All that had to be done was build two more Falcons, put the various stickers on and go racing up the front with van Gisbergen or Engel, plus Slade and Holdsworth...

Yet now Matt Stone Racing is effectively the continuation of the Queensland team and Erebus is an unrelated team in Melbourne. It's all very odd!

Can you explain whose fault it is then? I am of the understanding that Betty owns the team, does the hiring, and generally has things done to her satisfaction. Not sure who else could be blamed for taking a front-running championship team and moving it straight to the other end of the grid the very next season, and never really recovering from it.

I thought CEO Barry Ryan now had a minority shareholding in the team, and it seems he is the one at the centre of the exodus of key personnel. He seems to be the one doing the day to day running of the team and his management style seems at best abrasive and of a 'his way or the highway' nature. Happy to be corrected but in my opinion Ryan has been largely at fault / the reason for the loss of key personnel and with it, their title sponsorship.

Quite true of the last 2 years, but prior to that they have lost what were multiple long term big sponsors, and before Barry came along and bought into the team, Betty was steering the ship solo. So while I agree with you whole heartedly about the state the team finds themselves in since Barry arrived, there was a much longer period of downturn prior to that which can't be blamed on him.

It's a shame what has happened to the team since he took over, but yes they were in worse shape before he took over. He certainly bought in the money that was absolutely necessary. At least they now have the money to keep the team going, even if they have lost a lot of personnel. But he needs to find a way to keep enough people in the team, otherwise there is no point

Barry was a polarising figure on the TV series. I really liked his passion and raw honesty in the heat of the moment, and how he calmed down so quickly afterwards.

Last year though, would've been a challenge for many - I know it would've been for me - as everyone lived under "one roof" for months on end, without any real "Barry breaks".

I had a flatmate like that once. It got to a point that I either had to move out, or I was going to be growing giant-sized potatoes in the vege garden.

I was expecting a Tony Quinn and Roland Dane T888 wildcard entry tbh, especially given Tony's new major shareholding ofT888 and Roland recently confessing a wish to do more of his own motorsport.

I think T888 came to the 1/4 party by announcing Whincup and Dane were going to swap roles next year... JW as principal (as we already knew) and RD driving the #88

Motorsport.com are reporting an Engine tweak for the Holden teams this year, but Supercars say there is NO increase in engine Power. We will see.
