any testing news

apparently SBR were testing at QR on Monday and FPR were at PI on Wednesday with new engine. Any news on either?

I know two things. Jack S***t. And Jack just left town

Re: any testing news

Theres a rumour going around that Anthony Tratt slammed Lowndes car into the wall at P.I.

I have no idea what Tratt was even doing at P.I, let along driving the CAT car. I also don't know whether the new engine was in the car at the time.

Yes it's in the pits somewhere, the throttle jammed.
