    Anyone not believe Lowndes has been pushed?

    Simona rumoured to get the seat.

    Of course he was pushed, the way it was announced is a dead giveaway. Has any driver who decided to retire announced out of the blue that they would be hanging up the helmet at the end of the season? I reckon Lowndes would have preferred to do a full farewell season rather than what has happened.
    I wonder if he comes out of retirement in a couple of years time?

    Yeah its bullshit, 100% Dane told him, "look mate, Simona is off contract, that's where we want to go, you'll have to finish up this year" I'll be pissed if they pair Lowndes with Simona for the enduros next year. That rules him out of ever winning another Bathurst.

    Seems to be some trouble on the old home front with Lowndes and his ex

    His ex needs to shut the fuck up and fuck off. Shes lived off of his name and bankroll for far too long.

    Tell me they arent seriously going after Simona? There has to be other female talent worth putting into that is more marketable? Surely Renee Gracie would be a better bet given that she at least has some personality, young etc

    His ex has been carrying on for ages. Definitely needs to shut the fuck up.

    Renee Gracie would be significantly slower than Simona. Simona in a decent car will finish mid pack which isn't too bad. In all honesty she's done better than the other international drivers that have tried to break into the sport. Yeah she crashed at Newcastle last year but in a shit car on a new track so it was an even playing field with everyone else she was genuinely impressive IMHO.

    If they were gonna pick a female driver outside of Simona, I'd rather see them fund/develop Chelsea Angelo.

    Chelsea Angelo is a far better prospect than Gracie.

    Gracie looks better suited to Geordie Shore than motor racing.

    Am I wrong in thinking all those statements are from bitter women. "you did the hard yards" etc etc.

    As far as I can tell she's never worked a day since splitting from Craig, lives in a home he built and paid for, clearly gets enough money from him to travel around the countryside constantly. I'm really not sure looking after the kids funded by someone else is really the hard yards. To me that's fucking easy. Sure the emotional toll of him not being around is hard for the kids but that was his career before he had kids and has never been any different.

    Realistically I dont think it really matters who they put in there, they arent doing it with any expectation of race results. Mid-pack is mid-pack, in reality there is fuck all difference between regularly placing 10-12 vs regularly placing 14-16, neither is going to help them win a constructors championship and bring any sponsorship based on performance. Call me cynical but its purely a marketing excersize aimed at building hype, getting sponsorship money due to the [god i hope i dont sound like im straight out of the 1950s] female factor, and trying to sell more garbage SUVs to female target audience via parent company. I cannot see any other reason for what they are doing, and based off that you'd want the most marketable, personable face to do so. The 3 or even 4 higher placed finishes per race are irrelevant.

    Just my take on it though. Substitute Grace for Angelo for whoever. Results the same.

    She "worked" on their farm. And by worked i mean he had a full time employee running it, whom she was having an affair with.

    SDS is the best candidate for the job.

    Grace - no. As difficult as they come. Not a team player. Not even in a one-car gig.

    Angelo - still too green. But the potential is there. Needs more seat time. A lot more.

    As for Lowndes ex wife, textbook bitterness. Needs to pull her head in, and think about the kids, instead of using them as pawns.

    Only reason Gracie has had a drive is because someone want's to bang her.

    Everyone does. She's got sex appeal, but that's pretty much it.

    Harvey Norman, etc weren't interested in that. As soon as she got the tits done, the stomach tat, the chest dermal, etc, they walked.

    Supercars doesn't appeal to the Stereosonic demographic.

    The Stereosonic demographic doesn't even appeal to Stereosonic.

    To be fair, that would appeal to a ton of the supercar demographic, but what team wants to be last by a couple of seconds a lap?

    I'd be more than happy to come last by a few seconds.

    What do you mean "by a few" - there is more than a few normally?
