No More Doom & Gloom

Hey so we had a shitty round in EnZed and the championship has closed a little, we are still ahead aren't we.

Lets get over it! One bad round in a very much improved year. Ford has the cars! Ford has the drivers! And we are gonna kick butt at Eastern Creek.

Things are getting better, Barra and Boss are right up there in only 12 months, series two will be better still. Ford have seen fit to get serious about racing. FPR will be right on it next year, remember they only kicked off in February, and I dont see SBR about to lie down. 888 are about to flex muscle, DJR are showing some form they haven't had all year. And it was good to see a Larko car well up there.

The ford teams need to work together more and I think they will, be positive guys Blue is gonna be THE COLOUR for some time!

Re: No More Doom & Gloom

Now thats optimism pritesh. hehe

That the spirit boys, ford have done extremely well to have come this far for the past 6 years! Next year, the bar will be raised for the red army and we will be the ones raising that bar!

Im remaining confident, but "if" ambrose doesnt pull it off this year, next year will be looking alot brighter for who ever drives a BA.

We are still the underdogs in this event this year. Holden and their smug corporate topdogs wont be having the last laugh!

Re: No More Doom & Gloom

even if we get nothing else from this year we have

had one of if not the most succesfull year for ford (both wins and top 3's

we have had a few 1&2 finishes and a trifecta.

we have won more rounds than holden.

The Ba has been more succesfull than the VY

We have got new teams that will grow and improve.

we have new imput from OS

and hopefully in a few weeks time we will have our first championship Team & Driver since 1997.

so no matter which way you look at it Ford have done better than holden.

Re: No More Doom & Gloom

Don't forget Steven Ellery an Super Cheap Racing, they have been flying the last few months. Really got their shit together an Ellery is regularily up amongst the fastest drivers on race day.
Being a small one car team makes their effort all the more brilliant, hopefully they continue on the form into next year and hopefully they can fulfill there plans of expanding to a two car setup in 2005.
They are doing alot better than some of the bigger teams with alot less. Makes ya wonder if some of the other teams really know what they are doing some times.

Re: No More Doom & Gloom

FordLover - my sentiments exactly. Even if Ambrose doesnt win the championship, we have had more successes than ever before and we should be proud of that. Next year will be way more competative, for the teams will have more experience with the BA and will prove to be higher contenders for the top position.

I know I have my 4-day, grandstand, pit-straight ticket for Clipsal 500 and am looking forward to what 04 will bring for Ford.
