Geoff has a teary

In the herald sun today, Gover said the most emotional moment in Bathurst belonged to Geoff Polities. After he got out of the Ba supercar lap with DJ. I know Dick was quick but I did not know that he could make a grown man cry after a lap. he he he he.
Only kidding, we know they were tears of proudness. I nearly had a teary too at the moment. Thank god for the tissue box holder. It is good to see a leader with emotions and pride
GO GEOFF!!!

EXACTLY - YOU'RE A LEGEND GEOFF - DON'T YOU FORGET THAT!

- I remember cheering because I saw Geoff on the telle durring Bathurst when he seemed very tense talking to the Stone Brothers crew I think it was, half way through the race, the people around me were wondering what the hell I was on about, their loss.

Geoff could be a great role model for ALL bosses out there who run large companies. Is obviously shows that he genuinly cares for the workers and the product by putting in every way he can. The moral of the company seems to be high, keeps his customers happy, and does heaps to promote and be involved first-hand in the success of the cars

Thumbs up

Well done Uncle Geoff, you auta be proud. You have done one of the hardest jobs in automotive history, get a failing company back on its feet and it looks the goods.

I'd be balling with pride too but you never know, when they broke the sound barrier in Conrod Straight it may have ruptured his eye sockets.....right were getting a bit grose here.....I'll shut up.

Sure the crew didn't just pull the crotch belt a bit tight:MUha:

But seriously, Geoff is the best thing to hit Ford for a long time and here's hoping we can have a great race series next year. Remember, If Murph/Toddler hadn;t got the penalty they would have been up the front too, 4 TWR cars in the top 6 or 7.

So wanted to see Richards and Larry do the formation 1-2
