Dear, oh dear! How in the name of god can you take Aiello's championship winning car, and be running back with the class B guys ?

Do you think they will improve during the season, or realise that they have perhaps bitten off a little more they can chew, and quietly withdraw ?

We couldn't decide who was the best out of Paula Cook, Russell Spence, or poor old Lionel

I wonder if they will do a mid season driver change like Arena did with Hoy.

OTOH, I just shot myself in the foot. I meant to say, "Hey, let Colin Blair drive. Let him leave out all our dreams". I bet you're just jealous he gets to drive a ST car and you don't!!

It wouldn't be my dream to race that car, I can tell you!

Colin has had some success in rear wheel drives, but he doesn't seem to be getting the hang of Front wheel drive. So it could be Russell Spence all over again!

He won the Independents section of the second race, after Matt Neal was out. A hollow victory or what?

Talking of Paula Cook, anyone notice she was driving a lotus elise? She finished 10th.

Hollow Victory indeed. " And the winner is - the last one out of two - to survive to the finish "

If the attrition continues - he could end up winning a race outright !!!

Why spend all that money on a nice Nissan and then put some jock joker in it with no experience of front wheel drive cars, very strange I say

Has Will Hoy got a job yet this year, he might have soon?

OTOH, Volvo did the same by hiring Morbidelli 2 years ago. He's a RWD BMW guy. He's back racing a BMW in the Euro ST series. He seems to be doing better there?

If so, I wonder how Will Hoy feels about this? Always being called in to clean up someone else's mess. It must be frustrating to see supposedly less talented spots while you have to work hard to get your own spot.

OTOH, is Colin bringing sponsorship with him? Is he buying his driver's seat like you can in CART/F1?
