Story Here

Wasn't the primary difficulty of this squad the sourcing of commercial partners?
It will be interesting to see how a brand switch might fix that

Will Mr Dumbrell still get commercial assistance from former HMS staffers going forward?

Couldn't hurt, and the bashing on LDM lately is going high, so why not change to Ford, but it does show one thing, LDM aren't as financially disadvantaged as we think, unless a Ford team is helping at a drastically reduced price or the new co owner is doing a lot

Larko did a segment on RPM about liveries & sponsorship Here talking about needing $3.5m a season to run a single car.

Judging by a dearth of corporate support here, there is a LOT of work to do to get to those kinds of numbers....

Interesting to read this as Lucas' brother co-owns the factory Holden team which provides LDM's cars and parts.

LDM don't buy much from Triple Eight.

Different engines, different shocks, cars are still in 2013 spec for the most part.

More Here

With quotes attributed to the team owner as well...

Seems an expensive proposition to switch to a Falcon V8 if it is set to be replaced in 2019 by a Mondeo body shape.

There was another mob looking to change to FPR Falcons some time ago... they didn't pursue their interest...

Fusion is the logical choice for a Ford team, similar shape to the FGX makes aero easier to deal with, compared to a Mustang, which is a complete restart. A four door looks better too in my opinion, I only like the old 2 door falcons, cant be done and look as good as the old ones on a new car
