Perhaps Modena Engineering can knock them up a few sets of driveshafts to go with the FWD sequential gearbags they built for the cars?

Indeed he was referring to Mr A, but Gary is unlikely to be forced out if he chose to stay & that is supported by suggestions its the Supercars business model thats the problem - that I believe.

The results from the Bend show how heroic Heimgartner's efforts were.

Nobody is addressing the real problem - Garry Rogers is of advanced age now and Barry is not his father. Without someone buying the team, nobody was going to be able to run it like it has been run.

Peter Adderton just gave them a good out.

Aside from Mr Heimgartner, only Luca Rangoni could extract any real speed from them.

Not even the great Alain Menu could make one work.

I suspect they have a very narrow operating window, coupled with the fact that they're heavy and fragile.

GRM has been Gary as we know it, I dont really know much about Barry or the family business interests outside motor racing.

They have not closed the door on Supercars - they are in the sport to make a profit.

Adderton is a side show.

Stefano Comini was fast with the WRX STi in TCR Italy, too.

theres an aussie racing overseas at them moment with strong ties to Renault.
Would make quite a PR coup to get him to drive as a wildcard at a headline mountain race.

i know it cant happen, but its a nice dream.

With Mostert leaving Tickford it would almost be a sure bet to see him doing Aus TCR with HMO next year

Nailed it.

The slide in team results coincides with Barry running the team rather than Garry. Barry's a good guy but he ain't his dad when it comes to getting results out of a race team.
