He did run his own GT program in a Porsche for Warwick Fabrics one year...

If you go waaaay back to the early '90s, he was mentored and employed by a few money men of the ATCC at the time.

Not exactly green to running businesses, motor racing or otherwise.

I had no idea he'd sold up.

So that's two pieces of the puzzle...

He is def out of JAX
Quit F4
Quit driving for LDM

Quit running 23Red before he tarted basically
Did he not start and stop driving Carerra Cup one year?


He seems to like the press releases but not the work involved!

Seems excessive for a one car team.

Not that it matters, as it'll be folded in half, and jammed in next to pit entry like every other year in Adelaide.

I'm probably going to be horribly wrong on this, but I think I can recall reading that Supercar teams needed to have a B Double transporter.

Mr Blanchardís Cooldrive car still makes do with only the ex-PWR B-trailer from the Britek days...

I thought so too, but apparently not the case.

Would the Cooldrive car "get away" with it because it's the third BJR car, which would already have a B-double for the other two?

If there isn't a rule, it'd be a good bit of promo then if a team trailered the cars in on an open trailer behind a Ute packed with some mock spares to the Sandown 500 heritage round.

There's no rule around needing an A-trailer.

The McConville zipper livery Warwick Commodore would suggest car preparation skills, no?
