With this blue print coming in next season and with talk of drivers swapping sides, it is going to be interesting to see if the sport continues to grow.
You look at most forms of racing anywhere in the world and the silly season is part and parcel. It is accepted that drivers chase the money and drive where ever for who ever. In our form of the game we don't like to think it can happen and history tells us it is reasonably rare.
Both our manufacturers will tell us that you are either a Holden guy or a Ford guy, you don't swap and there is no grey, yet they seem hell bent on disproving the theory.
The cars are going to be fake ( yes worse then they are now ) Why not put the drivers names in a hat and have a draw before each race to determine which car they will drive this round. Is it really that silly of an idea.
Our sport has a tradition in passion and loyalty, but as each season passes a little piece is eroded. If the cars are going to be a shell in name only and drivers are going to change sides at will, what is the point. I can neither barrack for Ford nor can I barrack for my favouite driver.
I thought sport couldn't get any worse then Carey. Glad I never backed that statement.
