Lowndes not happy

A thread over at conrod, states that Lowndes is not happy at 00 and even rang Uncle Geoff, to get him out of there.

Don't know if there is any truth in it, but things are not looking good in the blue oval camp.

So don't buy anymore 00 motorsport merchandise this year, the team may be nonexistant next year.

He should count his lucky stars he is not driving for DJR this season.
How bad have they been.

Its sad that our top gun has been placed in with a team of donkeys. Imagine what Lowndes could do if he was placed in a V8 team that knew what it was doing like Stone Bros or (formerly DJR).

How Lowndes got lumbered with a team that should be in the Konica series is beyond me. Id want to get out too!!!!

If Prodrive stepped in and took over 00 Motorsport I'm sure Lowndes would have a very good team around him, we can only hope.....

That guy (Predictor) that posted that thread at Conrod is a w@nker and he always talks shit.

Don't believe what he says.

How the f**k does he know if Lowndes called Polities saying that he's not happy?

I agree 00 Motorsport,

The 00 team has been one of the most professional Ford teams on the track this year. Every thing that I have seen indicates that Lowndes is happy there.

Anyway, why would he ring Uncle Geoff? He wouldn't have much to do with it. I would have thought if anything he would talk to Marsden who actually looks after Ford racing.

As for 00 Motorsport merchandise, I ordered a jacket over a month ago and still haven't recieved it. The way things are going it will be next year by the time I get it!

Should have gone to Thompson Ford Jamie, they have all the gear for the major teams. Probably could have left with one then and there.

This is the second time I've heard this rumour pop up here ... I wonder where is it coming from, and why it seems to have the legs it does?
