Hot rumours

I was speaking to one of my mates that currently drives in the Konica Minolta series for one of the Ford teams and he told me a few things that are circulating in the pits at the moment.
He said that Lowndes will go to DJR and Steven Johnson will be out of a job.
And the biggest news is that Marcos Ambrose wants a payrise for '05 and SBR are not prepared to pay it, so Marcos leaving SBR is a possibility.

1. I don't see daddy kicking his son out of his own team.
2. Well lets just hope that that's all bullsh*t. - If Ambrose wants a payrise, Ford or SBR will fork out.

Re: Hot rumours

Why would Lowndes go to DJR? dont see him being any better off? but I agree with puts that AMbrose should get the payrise he deserves, hopefully not getting greedy though

Marcos was recently looking to purchase a property up in QLD so I can't see this one happening..

If it does though.. FPR is the obvious choice.
