the first the team knew of it was when the tow truck arrived to collect the car... Bowe went ballistic, and is now out of a confirmed ride and retired...

something will turn up no doubt... but Smiffy/Aus GT very catty right now

funny really, they're both wankers... Smiffy and Terry (very) Little that is...

wtf?

Those news articles don't really say anything.  Do you need to be in the know already to make sense of it?  Is there lots of history on this one?

err.. ok... Team Lambo said they were doing a few rounds this season and then a full assault on the champ next year.

They did 2 rounds then sold the car without telling ANYONE, even the driver! And they have no car to replace it.

And there has been some promotion based on the fact Bowe was racing it.

Terry (Very) Little and Bowe are VERY close mates, and go way back...

Smiffy has always been a..... well, many things!

Weird.  So, very unprofessional then.  Not good for the sport.

depends on your point of view...

if entering racing was with a view to selling the car... then he did exceptionally well!

But TRUE racers race for racing... and true fans appreciate it...

Lambo owners should know they are not buying a car from a "racer"... if that should influence their decision in any way...

probably not though.

Bowe is a yardstick by which everyone should measure themselves... without him racing, the sport is worse off.

Early in the Sandown 3.5 hour race... Roast beef is to be smelled as the lead Lambo burst into flames...

Always the owner's right to sell the car but the timing was strange.  I recall quite a bit of noise about the upcoming 08 season and JB was certainly focussed on it.  A lot of effort went into prepping the car so why drop it right now?

Anyway, it won't make it any easier for TLA to get a name driver next time around, that's for sure.

the Washington car had a weird internal fire... an ECU exploded or something! yikes! Driver got burned and everything.

what effort went into prepping the TLA car?. Reiter supply a pretty good thing... just needed basic stuff and stickers to be race ready.

TLA will struggle to get a driver, as long as smiffy is in control.. he has burned so many bridges and drivers...

sure, somebody will have a steer, but it won't last.

The Washington car is an Adelaide car... maybe ash's power surges are across the town!
