What about Percat to T8, Pither to BJR, and Feeney to Tickford to replace Le Brocq?

Percat has already publicly said 888 aren’t interested in him

Seems that way as he’s just re signed with BJR.

Is Jamie just throwing some off the scent?

Or is Bamber a real chance?
Brown certainly put his hand up (even though locked in at Erebus), and Feeney is doing himself big favours in Super2.

Triple 8 want to add championships and Bathurst victories and their not going to do that with a driver not suited to the series

IMHO: Of the unsigned and available current drivers:

The absolute best uncontracted driver is stiil Jamie Whincup, but we can rule him out.

Todd Hazlewood is the second most outstanding for choice by 888.

If Todd is selected, Feeney, guaranteed a start by Boost, could find himself in a BJR Boost backed car., or replacing Courtney in an FPR return.

Scott Pye was supported for years by Roland Dane, both Overseas and in Australia. He should not be ruled out.

We still wait, with interest, on the selection of an overseas wildcard or one of the top S5000 drivers, Joey Mawson or James Golding.

Pye will not be at triple 8, my money is on a Dude aligned driver.

You know, money aside, I'd love to drive for Brad Jones.  They just seem like a fun bunch of folks.  Hope Nick propsers.

The Groves have purchased the remaining 50% of the team from Todd and Rick, but the Kelly's retain the engineering business and the Mustangs.

I suppose the Groves will borrow the Mustangs for the first part of 2022.

What Gen 3 cars will they run?? 
The Groves have extensive ties to the VW Group.

Will the driver lineup change? It might be a good time to clean out the driving roster deadwood. (Hint: I would keep Heimgartner. ;D )
