Reading the article, there is speculation, but:

No announcement re leBroc
No announcement re Fullwood
No announcement re Supercheap.

You may be right but that reference does not support your conjecture.

You must have a different version of that reference than is available on line.



DeBorre apparently likely to move with Mozzie too. Seems more and more are not happy with Tickford or rumours pay cuts upon contract renewals.

Sucks to see Chaz go. Shame that some fans do turn on drivers as soon as they change. Chaz is my favourite driver and I'll still support him. But I'm a Ford fan first. If a Holden has to win, I hope it's him and I hope that one day he'll be back in a Ford.

Some fans take it to far. I was hoping Chaz was going to stay blue for his entire career especially after Frosty jumped ship. Unfortunately there just are not enough choices on the blue side anymore. People do not believe it but a shrinking income in a dwindling sponsorship market has had a big impact on morale there and drivers walking. Other teams are experiencing the drop also but handling it a little better.

So Chaz jumped to a team with the same problems?

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

He clearly judged that the situation might continue with Tickford, but WAU are restructuring for 2020, the first since A and U bought into the team, and they have piles, of money that is.

I expect a team management and engineering restructure with an injection from overseas. With the demise of a Kelly team and GRM, there will be a few solid staff, with Supercar experience, in the market who don't want to move to Qld. or NSW.

If it doesn't work, Jaimie Whincup will be giving up his seat in a couple of years and Scott McLaughlan will eventually be going to USA, racing wheelbarrows for Roger Penske.

Could sense this coming. Youlden didn't have that edge, even when he won Bathurst, I still didn't rate him among the top 3-5 co-drivers.

Premat is similar IMO - even have matching haircuts.
Give him another year, he deserves it after winning Bathurst, but if he doesn't go back to back - he wasn't all that impressive at the other events.

It would seem so but there is a slight difference. WAU have a massive cash injection and are under going a pretty decent overhaul. WAU are at the beginning of rectifying all their problems where as Tickford itís still early days and still on the decline. Oh and there is also the extra salary to sweeten the deal.

Not surprised about Youlden. He just wasn't driving right this year and was really hard on himself about Bathurst. I had a feeling this was his last enduro campaign.

Right call. Several mistakes in all rounds this year. But top effort to do it for around 20 years without a full time gig

RIP05

_Mholden

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.

Will Chaz run the HRT favourite #2 or stick with his love of double digits in #22?

Surely Erebus should be rushing to sign someone like Tim Slade to partner Dave Reynolds.

Or WAU signing him to pair with Chaz.

Sladey is holding a great hand and might as well keep his cards close to his vest. He has a lot of time to "call" them.

Who wants to throw the most money in the pot before he fans out his cards and takes it?

Penske may have him on the radar too. Stubbsy suggested Ryan may have given Courtney a call... (denied by Ryan, but no point confirming it now either).
