Terry S should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Ex Supercar Drivers

Every year there is a turnover of Supercar drivers.
Some have well publicised departures (recently Bright, Kelly and Moffat); others just "disappear. This can be due to sponsorship changes, or the mechanics thinking he was too hard on the car, etc. etc.

Thinking about this I came up with the ten names below that you just don't hear anything about now. These are in no particular order:

1....Dale Brede
2....Alan Gurr
3....Steve Ellery
4....Paul Romano
5....Simon Wills
6....Michael Patrizi
7....Adam Macrow
8....Marcus Marshall
9....Greg Ritter
10...Cameron McLean

What happened to them, and what are they doing now?

A few of them are probably on Facebook and such.

Macrow ran in the 12 Hour recently and it was his first race in a few years, there was an article on Speedcafe saying that he wanted to make a comeback.

Cameron McLean has a mechanic's shop somewhere on the Brisbane northside.

Does't Michael Patrizi have a go kart business / race team / hire ( in association with Daniel Ricciardo )? There was a video on youtube recently with Whincup and SvG at some track and it was run by MP.

Presumably for Kalari Transport, his father Tony Noske's business and (part?) sponsor of Tony's racing Commodore back in the day? Unless Tony sold out and moved on. hrug:

I don't believe Kalari exists anymore, so I can't say who he drives for.

What's David Besnard up to these days?

There has been a lot of good young drivers over the years that just couldn't crack it and then fell off the radar!!
