    I like what Erebus are doing here. Better than what Tickford have done in recent years.

    So do I....

    Because it's only a matter of time before T8 or DJRTP try for Anton's signature, either when JW retires or SM goes OS, whichever comes first.

    Yeah, forgot about AD possibly going to T8. Would make sense if Whincup leaves.

    I wonder if SVG would leave as well.

    I could see Pye replacing Whincup. Anton is the obvious choice for DJRTP if they don't re-sign Coulthard with Mostert now off the market.

    Seamer:
    So either Supercars SUV's and Light Commercials, or an outdated Gen 3 Commodore. :odd:

    I'll be totally honest. A Supercar version of the Colorado might actually look pretty sweet. Would make the Ute series a little bit redundant though. :lol:

    Hey guys, do you hear that sound?

    Don't worry. It's only a Seamer scrambling :sly:

    I didn't like it at first but it's growing on me.

    I would have preferred this colour combination, but I'm not sure how it would work with the other sponsors colours.

    Edit: I was checking Ned out a bit more and came across an image of just before this years Adelaide 500. So it's not their first foray into sponsoring AH.

    Am I the only one who's reminded of the Jim Beam Falcons? I love the no-nonsense approach to this livery, as it's bold and uncluttered.

    This is nearly...nearly SuperGT-like with teammates sharing a car. Not like the enduros where someone does a one-off. It's not a driver switch at pit stop, but pretty cool initiative.

    Great way to get experience in the main game rather than running as a wildcard once or twice a year. Hope MSR can get some good sponsors on that car.

    Seems that Bryce Fullwood at WAU isn't a lock.
    The thing is. Who does WAU go with other than Fullwood? Not many (if any) options left on the table at this point of the year.

    I've soften on Rullo a bit. He did pretty decent job as a co-driver the last couple of years.Having said that he's nowhere near the prospect that Fullwood is.

    I agree, but Rullo money wise and sponsorship though? I don't know if he could bring Castrol to WAU. Maybe WAU would prefer a good driver over cash.

    Unless Walkinshaw has given Mobil the flick, it's hard to see that happening. Weird that Bryce mentioned funding being part of the issue. Wouldn't have thought that a team like WAU would need the driver to tip in anything.

    Edit: Dean Fiore to partner Pye for the enduro's.

    SuperUtes will switch to LS3s. I guess SuperUtes fit in this thread, at least until the Opel disappears.

    Anyway, they should have just started off with those cinitial concept sketches, to look like the Ranger below:
