mad Mitsubishi wants SBR

In MSN magazine it says that Mitsubishi are having discussions with SBR to run cars in 2005

The one sticking point is that Marcos Ambrose and Russell Ingall are contracted to Ford long-term.

It also says that Ford only gives SBR $1-2 million a year which is less than what DJR gets.

We finally have a Ford team that starts winning and now were're going to lose them to Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi don't even sell V8s in the showroom so what the point of entering the series?

If Mitsubishi starts winning in the V8s do you think people will go out to the dealers and buy FWD/AWD V6 Magnas?

I don't think so!

John Kelly (Father of Todd and Rick) has purchased 00 Motorsport's franchise to run the Kmart cars so there's one Ford team gone.

Aye, when the hell did that happen? so will there be 4 Kmart cars? but 00 motorsport sucked this year anyway but its still going to be some holdens to beat out there thats sucks

the SBR thing with mitsubishi i dont will happen because they will lose ambrose and ingall and money from ford, they should buy HRT off Skaife and rename it MRT, or buy Larkham's team

DJR get more money up front because they pay for their own drivers.

SBR have their drivers paid for and supplied by Ford, so get less money for 'the team'


Swings and roundabouts really

It's not on the net.

You'll have to buy the Motorsport News magazine.
