No mention of where from, but he does say that he doesn't think they will be too hard to get hold of

Wouldn't be thinking of expanding unless he is thinking of drivers to put in there

Cheers!

I wonder who they are. Golding I guess, but the 2nd one. Possibly means moff is going no where also

Possible for GRM. It would be a good thing to see. That way he could have Golding, Tander and Moffat in the cars, even though Moffat hasn't impressed in the past I feel he is doing a decent job this year, he has been around the pace Garth has at the majority. Some he has been off pace, but so has Garth

Stanaway in the 4th car possibly. It has been suggested that he will be on loan maybe next year, GRM have a good past with young talent, would be a good fit

Possibly!

The easiest thing to do would simply be to move Moffat along, and put Stanaway in the #34. I am not sure that Golding has shown enough potential to warrant a main game drive yet.

The problem is both have been off the pace compared to McLaughin. Now Moffat was always off the pace compared to McLaughin, and unsurprisingly Tander is at the same pace as Moffat -- which is fine. But Stanaway might be the superstar required to put GRM racing back in the hunt for regular podiums.

If this is happening could it just be simply that GRM would rather run 4 main game cars, rather than 2 + 2?

So the extra 2 seats would likely be funded by he drivers.

True, while I still feel a few more development races couldn't hurt, Stanaway is definantly a big part of the next major silly season

The article is kinda odd... it's like he wants to go somewhere else, hasn't gotten a deal up yet, but Tekno is an okay fallback. A fallback.. would you really want a driver in your squad that sees you as a fallback...

Maybe the invoices for driving services are still "slightly" behind

While I won't declare that I'll eat my hat if Davison is at Tekno, I'm not googling hat recipes either...

This was brought up a few weeks back, interesting to see someone like Davison in a battle to sign a contract

The question becomes one of 'where next'..
The top end of town has seen the driver and 'allowed' him to move on.

Davison Bros Racing @ LDM?
