Whincup's attitude to Bathurst comes from the philosophy of 'Don't die wondering'.

Have to agree with that. Although he left his team wondering why he passed the SC and why won't he listen when he is going to run out of fuel.

Brown to DJR still running along....but a real tough one...

Waters to Grove would be a blockbuster...(and I am a Tickford Fan)....but not for a year or two it seems...

I could see Courtney ending up at Team 18 for a final reunion with Schwerkolt

Not in 2022.

This is 2022. Perhaps this speculation would be better in a 2023 topic.

Jacobson gone from PremiAir. Potentially Goddard or the third Kostecki to take the seat, so this could affect Tickford as both are them were scheduled to be co-drivers for Bathurst.

When was the last time a driver got kicked mid-season?
Probably sooner than I remember... Davison during covid, but that wasn't 'kicked out' so to speak.

Was this the first round that the owner was able to attend and observe the operation?

Peter Xiberras is personally a driver at the very highest level in Drag Racing world was there for the dual meeting, winning the Top Fuel Championship.

He certainly can't have been impressed with either driver but Coke is paying the bills on the other car.

I know that Subway extended their initial sponsorship, but wonder if this was also their last round.


PS. Since posting, I realised that Subway got magnificent TV time at Darwin. Just think of all the crash replays that featured "Subway". ;D

Be interesting, certainly. Would you give up a 'plum drive' at the (second) top Ford team for one race and jump in a bottom tier "new" team that has hardly had a positive moment all season...

I guess whichever one pays more...

In all seriousness, it is an interesting conundrum. I feel like the better option, while it might be (significantly) less seat time, would be sticking with Tickford for the enduros.
