Gardner in 3rd SBR Falcon

Wayne Gardner is set to return to regular V8 action next year with Stone Brothers Racing.
Gardner plans to combine another season in the high-tech Japanese GT championship with a limited local program in a third SBR Falcon.
SBR has secured additional backing from Caltex to fund Gardner, which will see him contest as many as six events- including the Bathurst 1000- in between his Japanese GT championship.
It is also believed that Gardner's car will be further supported by German energy drink company Dark Dog.

You are the Guru of V8 Supercars infomation.

This is out of the blue, although Gardner is a very quick driver and quite capable of delivering good results.

Remember how fast he was at Bathurst 2000?

Hmmm John Bowe at FTR, would be a logical choice considering he's ties with Tickford.

This I do not like, gardener may be fast, but he also likes to whinge a lot, I am not a big fan of seeing him in a falcon, and will not be supporting him

Thumbs up

It'll be good to WG on a semi-regular basis & even better to see him in a Ford. I'll agree in the early days of his tiptop career he was a bit of a whinger but he was driving for GM then so was easy to ignore!! His time racing cars in Japan has really taught him some humility though & also bought along other aspects of his driving.
Hope he keeps his head straight for interviews though cause I'm pretty sure his Japanese ride is Esso sponsored!!
