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.

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.

He spent so much time in the fence in 03 it hardly would be worth the ffort to keep painting it.

To be blunt, It's nothing to worry about as Ford fans. 2 more cars to fill the back of the grid along side Dumbrell.

Steven Richards has flashes of success and that's about it.

Ingall really carried CPR. Atleast He could get with in a wiff of winning the title. Something their current drivers haven't come close too.

Good luck to a couple of old stagers. Maybe a change of brand will give them a change of luck.

Certainly going to be a distracting year for CPR fettling (and repairing :razz: ) so many cars.

I agree with Donut King on this one... I wouldn't expect this sort of rubbish talk from even Holden fans. Unbelievable.

Larry and his team have a vast range of experience in setting up their V8 Supercar team, and won many Bathursts in the 90's. Steven Richards is a fast driver, and I hope they put in a good showing. Good luck to him with his new venture.
