    Na, Roland wants a title contender in that seat.

    JW will be next at some point, Roland is excellent at succession planning.

    Need to know which up and coming driver is out of contract at season end.

    I don't know, the Harvey Norman money is apparently quite a healthy amount and if Holden still wants a female driver...

    Not sure they'd look at Frosty if they're prepared to push Lowndes out.

    And there's that too.

    It appears Roland likes to hedge his development and cycle drivers, 1 at the peak/back end of their career (Lowndes), one superstar peaking (JW), one on the rise/long future (SVG).

    Given Lowndes is out everyone moves up a peg which opens up an opportunity for a younger SVG type and probably puts JW on notice he's got a limited time left...

    I'm thinking of mowing the lawn on the weekend if the weather is fine. Well I thought I'd post other shit no-one cares about.

    Goodbye Clowns, you were very blessed to be given the best equipment and support from day one of your career. But the last 10 you've been shaded by your team mate or very involved in bump and runs to move yourself forward in the pack.

    Only downside will be that he's joining the commentary team. Listening to Skaifes one sided babble is bad enough.
    As a Pink Floyd fan I get mad when I see vegans eating pudding.
