Sure they did...

I've dealt with her type before. They make up a problem and a solution for it, as though it came from somewhere outside their own mind.

Why would you listen to a sports editor of a newspaper?

If that complete and total mismanagement of an operation calculates as "some", I would hate to see what sort of clusterfudge a lot of mistakes is.
So what does this say about the Kelly's. Took a team with Bathurst winning heritage, Had been close to taking the ATCC and produced 2 race wins in all that time. Erebus are making them look silly.

The previous iterations of Kelly Racing had two championship wins, and two Bathurst wins.

And now Erebus and Stone Brothers Racing have won the same amount of Bathurst 1000s.

Article here on Betty from Fairfax Good Weekend magazine.
Firstly, it's good to see some Motorsport coverage in Fairfax that shows up on the front "page" of the digital publications.
Secondly, it occurs to me that Betty really was mucked around something chronic by the initial management team that she had but now, with a more realistic and focussed management, Betty is a Bathurst 1000-winning team owner and no-one will ever be able to take that away from her.

Betty bought a fully sponsored team with a track tested COTF Falcon prototype and fleet of competitive Windsor engines ready to go. A team with a fantastic roster of skilled engineers, fabricators and technicians.

To deflect the blame to others seems like madness.

It's for the best that the SBR workshop was not purchased outright, as now "they" are back in the Supercars and race preparation game anyway.

Yep, Betty bought the team but installed her own "management" with Ross Stone as an advisor only.

If she'd installed the current management way back then, the intervening years could be quite different.

I've always felt that the installed management at the time took on a bloody good team and "managed" it backwards with maximum acceleration.

I just cringe when thinking back to the amount of money that was spent on the engine program and the glaring mistakes made with it along the way. At least it has all worked itself out now.

Is it engine costs that prevent the E63's from appearing in Super 2?
