Go Back to Black

Am i the only one who has noticed this?
Marcos Ambrose has been winning for most of the year but then after the Oran Park round which he won, he changed racing suits from black to white. Since then he hasnt been able to take a trick and has struggled at Sandown, Bathurst, Gold Coast and Pukekohe.

Does anyone know why he did this? White would be cooler in summer, but surely summer and winter tempereratures make no difference when inside a 40+degree cockpit.

Go back to your black racing suit and dominate at Eastern Creek!!!!!

Re: Go Back to Black

Hahaha I briefly thought this too!
Both Ingall and Ambrose got new designs for the enduro's where they shared a car, and Ambrose hasn't changed this jumpsuit since. -
Maybe you should email, or even call them too suggest he changes back!

- Every little bit helps!

Re: Go Back to Black

How, could the colour of his Racesuit effect his performance, by stopping him winning races, he could of/should of /would of won at gold coast if his engine didnt shit itself.

Maybe he lost his black one, or set it on fire to test it

Superstition.
The same reason Alan Jones always wore red underwear. Or a driver may put his right boot on before his left.
Or always wears the same design helmet.

It was just a thought :)

Re: Go Back to Black

Any little suggestion to get Marcos back on track for the championship is fine in my book! I think he's got the "Greg Norman" look about him and I've got everything crossed he can get back up it and win this thing!
