Re: Tratt and Longhurst to Holden

Yes but remember the trouble they had with the new VY...they started to get a handle on it later in the year so i would think it makes sense to put richo in the already half sorted VY then a brand newy and go through all the trouble they went through mid season last season.

Re: Tratt and Longhurst to Holden

That explain's why they have been advertising like mad for extra staff, there has been a few posistion's available at Perkin's motorsport,and the only driver I hope to see do well in that group is S, Richard's.

WHy does Dumbrell get the old VX with THE worst paint Job for a level 1 team. Cant they up grade him to a VY as well. What is Toll-ipeck going to do with their spare BA V8 supercar.
