Does anyone know what the final driver combinations for Sandown and Bathurst are?

Thanks

Re: Driver Combinations for Endurance Races

ambrose is with ritter, which in my opinion isnt the best combo, no offence to ritter but i think ambrose/ingall would b alot better and the sponsership clash is a load of bullshit

Re: Driver Combinations for Endurance Races

yea thats what I think, you have to ask the sponsors, what do you want, the cars clashing or your cars shown as winners at Bathurst?

But I can see where they are coming from, for example Caltex would object to Ingall and Ambrose in the Pirtek car because that is more likely to win than the Caltex car, obvouisly the same would apply if it wast he other way round

I thought the shared sponsorship paint scheme they ran last year was one of the best looking cars in the field, and I was hoping we'd get to see it again.

Re: Driver Combinations for Endurance Races

Remeber last year when Ingall took over from Ambrose and parked it in the sand at the first corner?
I can understand why they are seperating them.
No offence to Rusty, but with double points on the line, if your car fails or dosnt finish, both drivers lose a double point score. Just risk management.

Re: Driver Combinations for Endurance Races

You simply can't put Ambrose and Ingall in the same car this year.

Both drivers are well in the championship race, to "put all your eggs in one basket" would be far to risky. Say the #1 (or #9) DNF'd either enduro, both SBR drivers would be out of the championship. The zipper car is a viable option, but both SBR drivers have the best co-drivers in the field. Ritter is the man...

SBR have by far made the right decision IMO.
