Besnard?

The guy has crashed or caused crashes in every single race of the year except Oran Park I think, and that's only because he wasnt racing close with anyone, the bloke is a loose cannon and should be pissed off to Holden if they will take him. Stones how about Ritter and Ambrose in a team???? Larry can have Besnard

Don't forget that Tander's first year was pretty dismal as well.

Stone brothers though are pretty tough when it comes to drivers being up to shape or not and we might well see the end of Besnard with Ford, or SBR at least.

It's a tad rough to let him go after his first year of V8 racing. I reckon he's doing alright all things considered. It's just that Marcos is having a dead set stunner of a first year in comparison..

hes in bloody 12th, hardly a great year judgin on points he too has had good and bad races but the double points races have been bad he hasn't finished one yet apart from adelaide but he failed in teh first race. you cant tell me guys like tander, ellery, richards or longhurst have been better drivers than him this year


but **** happens, unfair if they cut him after a bad year though sbr did it to both baird and longhurst last year and longhurst had one of his best seasons in ages and was fords 3rd best performer last year in points i think
