Would the Smiths really pay for someone else to drive their car when they gave family members in drives across the world…?

You can't say Jack hasn't had a go, but the company itself has marketing objectives to meet and with the relative competitiveness of the field this year, Jack has been nowhere.

SCT should be better served by having a likeable, competitive driver.

I gotta be honest I wouldn't complain if they flicked Pye for being a massive flog and gave Jack the drive.

At least Jack knows how to respect a yellow flag.

SCT should have really parked there REC or TRC at a more competetive team. Which could have helped Jack develope...

Maybe, But you have 4 cars, 1 always up there, another close behind and then 2 not so

So I think enough is enough and lets move on.

Grove really struggled with the Gen 2 car though.

DJR To Supply Ford V8Supercar Gen3 Engines..

Now there's a good idea... give the team who homologated a sub optimal chassis platform responsibility for the engine program too...!!

WP (as separate to WAU) has a nice engine shop sitting in Melbourne looking for work... this would have fit them nicely...

A more competitive team would have the patience to deal with Jack's lack of pace?

Hopefully SCT stay on, with a cheap but reasonably fast driver like Hazelwood in the seat.

Or perhaps a young gun like Ojeda, Allen etc.

While Best is suggested, would Best really perform any better than Fraser (or Jacobsen)?! Surely drivers who spend that long in Super2 aren't that handy?
