confused V8 Supercar silly season

Heard the following on the Triple M rumour mill this morning (if I can remember correctly)

1. Jason Bright to go to a new CAT Commodore team
2. Todd Kelly to take his HRT seat
3. Rick Kelly to join Murphy at K-Mart
4. New young lions driver

Interesting if true, wonder if Briggs would get a replacement sponsor for CAT or run one less car...

It's better to remain quiet and let people think you are a fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

CAT would never go Commodore - Head of the company is a big Ford man apparently ...

If the CAT boss is a big Ford fan he should look at helping Glenn Seton out and sponsor a second GSR Falcon IMO.

Don't worry about Glenn Seton. I'm sure he'll be fine for 2003, especially when PRODRIVE take up his 2nd car franchise and run their new BA from the GSR stables.

They will operate like TWR, sharing data and Glenn will gain the technical expertise from PRODRIVE and the PRODRIVE car will gain the priceless experience that Glenn Seton has.

It's WIN-WIN!

Now we have to figure out who will be driving the other car?

Besnard maybe????

Of course this is specualation.... but enjoyable speculation

I like the sound of that speculation. Maybe someone should float it to Prodrive, Glen and Besnard.

Hope 290 Kw will satisfy me

I heard the CAT/Commodore rummor also. I think it was in last weeks Motorsport News.

The different bit I heard though was that in place of Bright's seat would be Paul Weel.
And the CAT Commodore team would be based on the Gold Coast.

If so that means that HRT will have another test track (Queensland Raceway) :dead:
