Probably wouldn't have happened if they got their facts right, or even apologised for it.

Those 2 have thicker skins than that, and they actually thrive on that stuff.....I reckon wigs may have been involved after the misinformation of epsiode 14.....

They probably were'nt making enough money out of it for the effort it required to produce it.

If money is a problem, how about cut the boring crap like driving a mini van around in circles to demonstrate CoG.

Honestly I'd be happy if they just called each other on the phone once a week, recorded the call and uploaded it as a podcast. And pay someone a couple hundred bucks to splice in a few sponsor messages here and there when they switch to a new topic.

Maybe every now and then get a driver or team owner to jump on the call?

It doesn't have to be expensive and it doesn't need so much production - just start with a list of big new stories since the last episode and chat about the interesting ones.

Well, they did break their own rules for the show. They promised the facts, unedited, uncensored and they broke everyone one of them. Made them no different then any other loud mouth(s) with an internet connection.

Then there is YouTube itself. Under 20K subscribers pretty low for what promised to be a high profile channel.

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

Meh. Facts lead to boring and stale journalism - “Scotty Mac won the race after completing 38 laps”. Opinions are far better “I think Scotty Mac did an amazing job to fight back from his team’s error in pit lane and thoroughly deserved the win!”.

I’ll take opinions over facts every day of the week.

Facebook is their primary channel - not YouTube.

In my opinion, you should not breed. People of the world need to raise their IQ.

There is no Facebook page for the program. The videos are shared to their personal pages. However there is a YouTube channel...

Ingall finally made a post on FB about the show.

quote:
Recently, we have had a lot of messages and comments asking when Enforcer & the Dude will be returning. The reason that we haven’t answered any of these is not because we are ignoring the fans, but we don’t currently have any answer.

My vision for the show was always about filling the large gap that existed explaining aspects of motorsport without an agenda by a couple of guys that have actually done it and know motorsport. Also to quietly prove a point that I believe we achieved.

As we have said previously, the show took a lot of both time, but also money to produce and not an easy task without having the massive resources like other organisations. Where to take it from there was always going to be the next challenge and on what platform to share it and that is what we were working on prior to the current crisis. Obviously, things have been put on hold until we see how everything plays out.

In today’s current global crisis, not only is there no racing going on around the world to talk about, but companies are all dealing with the priority of running their businesses and keeping people employed in these trying times. As a result, sponsorship is low on the priority list which is understandable.

Saying that, we really appreciate the support of all our fans who made the show the largest by viewer numbers of any Motoring and Motorsport talk show in Australia in 2019.

As for future plans, right now we are focussing on our families and getting through the current crisis before we can make any future commitments. We may do a “Pop Up” episode or live feed so stay tuned. Meantime we have put together a highlight package from last year so please enjoy.

Stay safe everyone and again, thank you for your support.

Cheers, Russell
