If Tickford goes, where does this leave David Flint?

Would there be a total cleanout of the company or would Mr Flint resume his position of Managing Director of whatever company is in place of Tickford?

as has been said in other threads, the Tickford engineers will just use different shirts ie prodrive. Anyway, I hope that Tickford is staying right where it is, and just receives funding from prodrive. (and lots of it

Forgive me for throwing petrol onto the fire but I have a even sader story. One of my mates got a Tickford tattoo a month ago!
Imagine now how he feels. The big T could now either mean Teletubbies or Tomteland, poor fella we give him heaps. He should have just got a Ford logo atleast I hope Ford ain't gonna change that in the distant future....?

I dont think that Tickford will go belly up, Ford said " Tickford will always be an integral part of Ford and engine tuning". Maybe Ford will be collaborating alot more.

Thumbs up

My guess is there taking the HSV's on at a higher Level, regardless, wether its called Tickford or Prodrive.

Bigger T's.
GT's.

Hopefully if there's a change on the horizon, let's hope we're still going to have Tickford involved in our cars, even if it's not by name. We all love the wings though don't we!
