Jeez there is some hype around Tickford Racing apparently being the ‘team to beat’ in 2018..

A pilot change can nake a difference, but there seems a little bit more missing from their program before the ‘Superteam’ proclamation is warranted..

As ever.. don’t tell me, show me....

The original T888 didn't have too many Aussies involved either.
Not sure on the situation there, maybe he owned enough and a controlling stake. Then again, him being from the old mother country, could have made things a little easier in that regard.

Would have to do some investigating to find the exact split between Holden and TW at the time.

Autobarn Lowndes Racing logo revealed...

Must be a slow news day

Question is, if Lowndes moves to Enduro only come the Monday after Newcastle 2018, what happens to the team name?

That's one way to get the Ford logo on your merch without upsetting the legal team.

How much are Autobarn kicking in $$$ wise? Given Dumbrell is an equity partner and Autobarn is a Dumbrell owned brand.

Not much in my opinion. Using Lowndes name when he has zero equity smells of topping up the budget via merchandise sales.

Honestly saying the idea of 'Autobarn Lowndes Racing' is ridiculous. Lowndes has no equity in the team so it makes absolutely no sense.
