He'll be in his mid-40s by then. That's typically full-timer retirement these days. In 10 years time however...

Is it a 10 year contract as a full-time main game driver. Or just a 10 year employment contract with Erebus? Fulltime driver might only be for half of it.

What/when was the last 10 year or longer driver contract?

Thinking it might go back to Dean Canto's deal with Briggs, which fell over not long after the ink was dry.

Lowndes & TWR.

From memory. Will Davison did or almost did a 10 year deal with Tony Longhurst.

Davey is not a 'corporate' driver. He wouldn't fit in at 888 or DJRTP. Betty is not a 'corporate' team owner. It makes a lot of sense to lock in together.

Just because he has a contract doesn't mean it will be VASC forever. She has plenty of fingers in other pies.

Is it possible we will see Jones out and an ace like Hazelwood, Lebrocq, Brown or Heimgartner in for the Cooldrive racer circa 2020?

Perhaps a veteran like Pye, Caruso, Holdsworth or Tander for #21?

Any chance for Smith in a second Blanchard Racing entry prepared by BJR?

I am not sure BJR themselves have the money or interest to purchase another REC.

With three cars already prepared by BJR, the step to four is not too difficult. The chassis exists, the existing second truck can be used, BJR are already running a fourth car wildcard at many events.

This presumes, of course, Blanchard Racing is happy with the services provided by BJR. Regardless, it would be wise to upgrade the driver of the #21 racer as Jones has been rather unimpressive. Hazelwood or Lebrocq would likely be an upgrade, and the sponsors they bring would be most welcome to top up the Cooldrive money.

The BJR cars are clearly fast with Slade and Percat often running in the top 10. Hazelwood or Lebrocq could certainly do a lot worse than racing a BJR prepared rocketship!

Some interesting tidbits on the Fox Motorsport podcast from Stubbsy including:
- Boost possibly leaving GRM
- Zane Goddard one of the rumoured drivers looking to share a REC/entry in 2020
- Kellys to Mustangs if they can cut a deal with Tickford for engines
- Kellys depart the sport (rumour McLaughlin had heard)
- Simona all but certainly gone next year

This doesn't sound far fetched, both of their youth "stars" are pretty rubbish. To be fair I dunno how you think you can put 2 inexperienced guys in a team

I can't see that being a sticking point, but someone is gonna have to stump up for a whole lot of new engines for the pool?

Neither of these would surprise me.

Peter Adderton might be a buyer, but how much would the Kelly's think the entire operation is worth? Their reputation unfortunately is tarnished by the fact that they lacked both the engineering and political wherewithal to put together a winning package, even in comparison to Volvo and Erebus, not to mention Ford & Holden.

As for Simona; Supercars ****ed up when they placed her with the Kellys. We've never seen what she was capable of, and she was a genuine talent.

This..... the girl got better results in Indycar than V8's with KR. I think she is one of two or three women to podium in that category. Several race wins in F Atlantic and success in a limited foray into Formula E. Was she not an F1 Test driver?
She is for sure more talented than her KR results show. And more deserving of a decent V8 seat than many.
