frown FTR is no more

Quote from MN's mag
------------------------------------------------------------
Glenn Seton's Ford team will have its 2002 season launch in Melbourne next week - but it will not be as Ford Tickford Racing.
Seton, who has cut back to a one-car outfit this season, will revert to the Ford Credit Racing moniker this year, the title used before he changed to FTR in 1999.
Ford sources have told MN that the team may have a new name this season after a decision to distance it from the Tickford brand.
The team will announce its endurance co-driver at the launch; "Expect the unexpected," said team manager Jon Matthews.
Seton is one of few drivers intending to test on Dunlop's new control tyre prior to the Australian Gran Prix.Seton was planning to run on the new rubber on Wednesday, while most teams are saving their six-tyre allocation for the practice sessions at Albert Park, the idea being to preserve rubber fot the races.

PersonallyI think it's a good ideaon the re-naming. To have a team with the Tickford branding running around with a one car operation is a big mistake IMO.
Having said that, I do feel for Seto losing the branding. Mustn't be a real good feeling at all.
All the more reason for Ford to re-introduce the Ford Works Team IMO...

ditto..Seton should add another driver with him he's going down if solo.
The only hope to have good results is the DJ racing and Craig lowndes,his car is like a rocket and improving over and over,pretty sure he'll take the championship from the "nose" this season.

That sucks i have the biggest load of FTR gear & I did like the idea of a Ford team (Lowndes) & a Tickford team (FTR). Im sticking by Seto the guy is a legend & deserves better I really hope he can climb back up & get some results like he did in the Ford Credit & PJ days.

I hope that surprise is Golin that would be awesome.
