    2019 Supercars Silly Season. Could contain heartache.

    So the silly season is in full swing.

    What's come out of the weekend of interest?

    Frosty's movement or lack thereof

    Holdsworths free agency

    Team 18's apparent desire to expand and rumored interest in Mustang

    The rumor that Team 18 will only get a Mustang over several of somebody else's dead bodies

    Matt stone looking to buy a rec rather than leasing notso's rec

    Kostecki's looking to buy a rec

    Continual noise around Nissan not running 4 cars

    Murmors that Tickford will go to 2 cars

    Mustang aero testing

    Transaxle supplier changing (car 12 went through 3 over the weekend, clearly unsustainable - but the xtrac unit in car 78 wasn't bulletproof either)

    Roland Dane throwing toys out of pram with mustang aero

    Lots of water to pass under the bridge between now and the end of Feb

    Frosty rumor to BJR now and yes, Tickford rumored back to 2 cars.

    Looks like there could be as many as 4 REC's up for "reassignment".

    Mustang Aero testing will be a huge event.

    Roland will be fearing it will do to them what ZB has done.

    Not sure Frosty would seriously entertain a BJR drive. The ZB aero is the only thing they have going for them and it's not too likely they have the funds for any enhancements in other areas, or to pay the likely asking price for his signature.

    We know T8 are offloading 1 rec, 2 at kellys are under question, 2 at Tickford likewise, MSR, Team18, Kosteki's and possibly 23red in the market, a leased unit held by Bright likeley to be on the market if MSR secure another one, and Blanchard was only a maybe for this year and the results haven't improved to make '19 likely

    The sport is still shaky despite Ford's recommitment

    Swapped 3 out over the weekend trying to find one which they were happy with, and didn't feel like it had gremlins likely to strike. The mission is said to continue before the Gold Coast. Given that these are all likely to have been freshly built units I can't see how albins will be back next year
