There are already quite a few locally developed Coyote packages in Aus including the MARC cars and the Super5000. The SUper5000 version already comfortably makes 600hp without even touching internals and already has FBW ITB and dry sump systems. Given the move of Supercars to FBW and the rumoured drop in power from 650HP, it actually wouldn't be expensive to develop that engine.

AA are saying that Chaz knocked back Penske.

Headline only mind you...

Edit.

Just read article. Chaz knocked back multi year big buck deal to partner Scotty at Penske. Penske upped offer and he still knocked them back so they will stay with Fabs.
Apparently doesnít get along with Scotty, stems back to their karting history.

Looks like WAU is going ahead. Courtney to stay taking pay cut and Pye is getting the flick

RIP05

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Yikes! If thereís any truth whatsoever in that, surely it would be because he wants to have clear number 1 status in the team. And maybe a link to overseas through wau as people have suggested. Mind u it is auto fiction.

Fogarty article, generally close to the mark

Agree with this. AA gets trashed all the time but anytime Iíve checked the rumour against the reality theyíve been spot on.

Iím saying this as a Chaz fan (Iím not an SM fan specifically just a Ford fan) but I think he is worried about getting beaten by SM. The bit that doesnít make sense is that SM will leave for USA eventually so why not get into the team in anticipation of that move?

Sad to see Chaz throw his career away like this,will certainly never win a series now.,..crazy brave move but....

That's harsh!

And whilst the reason for the move were different, most would have said the same when David moved to Erebus, yet out of all the drivers at FPR in that year, his the best off by a mile!! Its not about what these teams have done in the past, it's about the future. And the future is not written yet!

Unless he's been told Andretti/Brown are throwing in cash hand-over fist to compete with Penske, I could probably tell you what the future holds.

I'd like to think Pye would becomes the centre of the silly season now, but it seems a cashed up Simona does.
Pye in a Tickford Mustang would be good.
