It's the ex-Team Hard Mercedes-Benz tested by 11 different drivers in 2020 but only raced by a couple in TCT. It'll be out in TCT if allowed next year.

That's the car raced by Toby Bearne in TCT this year. The Darron Lewis car has also just been sold.

Looks like Gow will get his way in terms of smaller teams, with the exception of the Excelr8 & TPC combo.

Interesting - do you have a source reference?

Is this a split of the HARD./BMR/Laser camp?
HARD. itself reducing in size?
Or is Motorbase dropping from 4 cars?

If you say 'with the exception of Excelr8/TPC', then does that mean <4 Cupras and <4 Fords next season?

I do wonder if we will see teams with less drivers next season. HARD have got their own team, I don't see BMR coming back, they are only doing engineering.

But yes I can see HARD not having four cars next year and who knows about Motorbase? And what will Excelr8 do?

It's mainly the Laser Tools/BMR/Team Hard split. As Boardely has 2 of the TBL's the purchaser wants both, so unless HARD can get another TBL they may have to drop to 3 cars.

Expect Excelr8 and TPC to stay the same. Motorbase too but depends on what MB do, plus sponsorship deals. Pete Osborne whilst a racer is very much a businessman.

They are paddock rumblings from various Team bosses, journos and drivers.

I wouldn’t mind seeing teams with less cars, if it gives other teams a chance to enter

Well I'm sure you've seen you aren't immune to being in the rumour mix even after a stellar season. Butcher's taking your seat apparently

I'll file that away with the Cook to Team HARD rumours under the 'where did that come from'?

Lolz…

I’m pretty safe I reckon, unless the big man sacks me?? ?

We are ready to rock and roll, let’s get our hybrid on!!

Oh yea, I also heard Jake is taking my seat, so it’s all fun and games!

Oh that’s a new one about Jake Hope he doesn’t get his mate Matt to sack you so he can pinch your drive

I believe the Cook/Cammish/Moffat/Bushell to Team HARD rumours are due to one seat being subsided and all of those (bar Moffat if Laser stick around) being short on funds.

But who knows really?

Thanks for coming back on here, Rowbo. I think we were all massively impressed with your first season with your first season for Team Dynamics, and I can't think of a single other occasion in motorsport where a driver has improved that much from one season to a next (I assume you and Morgan weren't always driving equal cars in 2019). It's great that you will be staying for next year, and I for one am convinced that Matt Neal will also be returning in a third Dynamics car.
