Thumbs up Good on ya Lowndes

Jut saw C.L at Syd Motor Show
he was standing behind counter signing autographs n shaking hands

His attitude was top class!

big smile for everyone, listened and really thought about his answers, you know seemed interested in each person.

I asked him if he ever felt bad when he sees his old team win everything,
He said that he had just been over chatting to them, catching up. They doing their thing we're doing ours. The seasons basically over we didnt win the race we wanted (Bathurst), were working real hard on the newcar, currently fitting roll cage to it.
that he feels great about 2004

he talked for quite some time. real nice guy

Thing is I went past almost 3 hours later just before i left, and he's still there signing and smiling and chatting! Must of had writers cramp!

One of the Ford guys working came up to him and thanked him, he grinned and said, "no worries i really enjoyed it!"

HE won me over!

Yeah, Mark larkham was the same.
Talked to him for about 15 minutes at the Ford Holden show. Top bloke...

I'm actually going for Lowndes and Ambrose next season, with Larkham just behind them because was just easy to get allong with.

Funny eh.. I used to dispise Lowndesy before his switch. Was still a but dubious when he came over but his attitude & professionalism have won me over. He has never said a bad word about HRT/HSV even though he got a right royal shafting & the bugger always smiles!

He's a credit to himself & his folks. Bloody good bloke.

I had a good chat to lowndesy at the show , he was there all day according to the woman behind the ford merchandise counter. He cant wait to take the new car for a drive once its all done and is very confident about next season. I got him to sign the bonnet bulge on my GT poster

Yep we have some real great guys in the Ford camp. I was like you FM and not sure about Craig when he came over but now he has my full admiration.

BTW Natalie Lowndes is a real gem as well. Even though heavily pregnant she was at Bathurst supporting Craig and smiling and enjoying the crowd. Good stuff Nat.

Yeah
I found Cromley faily friendly too at Sandown last year. We had a bit of a chat and he signed stuff for me.
I think thats one thing Ford has over Holden, personalities.

There was a article in MOTOR I think and it says that V8 Supercars needs a personality such as Peter Brock.
They said that the only guys that could at the moment is Skaife because he is so fast but they said that hes so up-him-self that hes practically inside out.
I think that once Lowndes and Ambrose start getting better, fans will all go to Ford because they can win and are friendly.

Has anyone talked to Ingall before? He seems like he would be fairly approachable.
