Having said that, a 4-car maingame, 2-car Super2 arrangement would be advantageous.
Here's hoping the commercial partner portfolio increases to reduce the need for round deals...

BJR have always been one of the most innovative when it comes to sponsor procurement.

They'd no doubt be capalable of keeping that up, should the need arise.

Good to see for the young fella. Wouldn't really have made much sense to punt him after a single season in the main game. Times have changed since Mr Rogers did it to J-Dub.

Unfortunately I can't see him getting a better seat fulltime next year-if he finds one that is.

Interesting that Boost would look at their own team. From a branding perspective its a good thing but to start a new team would be a hell of a lot more expensive then whatever theyre tipping into WAU.

Shame Lee can't get the third seat at Triple Eight. He would be a good choice IMO since he's familiar with T8 equipment and be out of the bad-luck ridden Preston team.

There is no longer a 3rd T888 seat. The REC for the car has been returned to CAMS and T888 have reverted to a two car entry for the Red Bull cars.
