Godown on the Road More in 2019

Recommended Posts


It will be good to see some new blood at the CNY races. 

Hopefully he makes the whole season on the  SDS tour.  

How many times have we seen a driver sign up for platinum then..........

The Searock team should take those troyer cars and team up with Peter Britten. 

Why doesn’t Peter just go out & get his own deal.

Making deals in 2019 is much more difficult than it used to be.  There isn't multiple rides trying to hire guys anymore.  No one wants to spend the money unfortunately.

That and tying yourself to one chassis manufacturer makes it even more difficult.

Britten is not Sheppard. talented yes, but not to the point where manufactures are handing over all sorts of equipment so the other guys buy what "they" have.
