confused FPR see the light

Well after the last 2 V8supercar rounds it looks like FPR have turned a corner. At last FPR have got the picture, they've dumped there pommy engine program, and got Rob Benson in, and all of a sudden there on the pace! "funny about that" CL & Glen did a great job at Bathurst, and Indy but the cards did'nt fall CLs way,Im only hoping Craig has'nt jumped ship a bit to soon. I for one were hoping 6 month ago he would get out of FPR and find a better car to drive, now Im not so sure. It just goes to show the cars were let down by there motors nothing else. Well done to Craig.It also looks like Bright is gonna be stepping into a good car.......

Re: FPR see the light

I think they both did what anyone else would have done and now they would both be kickin emselves CL's espiecially! But its the way it goes! But also DJR and 888 racing are also improving! So I dont think it will be too bad for them!

Re: FPR see the light

Re: FPR see the light

I've always said that he should have stayed with FPR because he'd invested too much time in them to benefit from changing and knowing that sooner or later FPR would be getting stronger. Prodrive were not going to let the team perform as badly as the first half of the season, realised their euro engine development was going nowhere and took steps to build up local expertise.

It would break my heart if FPR were the business next year and 888 go shithouse!!

Still, the performance of 888 at Surfers would be encouraging to CL. They have been good in patches so the basics must be pretty reasonable.

Roll on '05

Re: FPR see the light

It's disapointing to see Lowndes leave FPR, I would rather see him stay there, I believe they have a good future, but everybody say's 888 is going to be so much better for him, but they too are a pommy backed team and haven't shown true form as well, I just hope he does well were ever he goes, he has true talent.

Re: FPR see the light

Yes I agree that CL & GS jumped to early as FPR would pick up because Ford & Prodrive would been imbarresed and will throw everything at the team.
The only good thing is Campble Little is at 888 so CL should have a good car next year

Re: FPR see the light

devil racer, although i started one of the threads paying out FPR, i always said i would gladly support them once they started going well, which was only a matter of time...
