Thumbs up Who will be the main man in 2003?

I think we should have a poll who will be Ford's main man in the 2003 V8 Supercar Championship (and hopefully champion).

I personally think it will be Marcos Ambrose. He has talent to burn, and is in the best Ford team (A hard thing for me to say as I am a DJR man).

What does everyone else think?

I'm saying SBR not because off Marcus Ambrose but because I personally beleive they are the best Ford TEAM out there even when Jason Bright was with them they set the pace and was the leading Ford team who also was the last Ford team to win Bathurst for us,even with our areo package this year they still were consistent enough to take out 3'rd in the championship, Even with the unpopular AU racecar given the right knowlegde and expertise you can still take it up to the ever conquering TWR. Bring on 2003 and SBR GO AMBROSE.

I refuse to single one out.

Marcos hopefully keeps improving.
Rat and big Stevo get in the top 10 again.
Craigy boy actually has a decent reason to smile (apart from his kid - all the best there)
Bezzy showing SBR he should still be there.
Ingall showing us that he was worth chasing.
Maxy Wilson qualifying well and turning that into race pace.

My fearless prediction is that Ambrose will have more speed than Skaife when they get into equal cars, but that Skaifey will be more consistent. Hopefully, this will mean somne thrilling batles right down to the wire throughout the season. Well, I live in hope

The only reason that Skaife is consistant is because there isn't any pressure on him. Next year there will be constant pressure, and there may be some mistakes then.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going, and, from what I've seen, Skaife is a cry-baby.

Don't forget OzeMail (Jones & Bowe)

If their rate of improvement continues they will be the top Ford team real soon.

I really don't care too much who or how many Ford teams rise to the top just as long as someone wearing the Blue Oval does and knocks TWR off the podium regularly.
