I hope Calum Lockie gets the drive, its a pity when the champion is short of funds! Ben if you read this give Lockie a call.

Anyone know who's in the frame for a drive? Could we see McKellar/Hindley return or are they too committed to their Marcos now?

I hear that McKellar/Hindley will not be racing the LM600EVO again this season; funding reasons I believe. That Mr Euser wants BIG bucks for you to drive his motor - and PI entry fees are very high - compared with the forthcoming (!) ISC series where the two NCK LM600s have gone. ISC are hoping for a Speed 12 entrant but thta will not happen this year. Cyprus residing Marcos expert!

The Speed 12 won't race in the ISC because of the competition, at the moment in the BRDC series it is only up against 2 cars and it still hasn't won!

To add to what I said before, they even have the best driver line up in the whole series. BVR and Caine are multi champions. BVR could win with any old crate in Tuscans and is always on the limit.

What's this, Crofts? Slating the TVR team AGAIN? Tut, tut.

The Lister and the Viper in the BRDC GT series are both over 3 years old. The TVR was new for this season and it still has not won, even with the best driver line up

So how come BAR did not win in their first year of F1. How many new cars (not evolutions of previous racers eg porkers) win in their first season? Not many I bet Sparks

As I said, not many...... And all from big companies with lots of money (not that TVR don't have a penny or two!) The car seems fast, but they keep suffering from silly problems. I do agree that on the face of it, it should be trouncing the competition, but then as you know James (racing yourself) it doesn't always work like that! sparks

I think it is time that they (TVR) should look at the ISC, or Rollcentre should join forces with RaceTech for this championship. Once the grid fills for the ISC, they will stop taking entries and it would be a shame for TVR to miss out.

These are the current standings in the Privilege GT championship: 1. Warnock / Jordan 94 2. Wilson / Harvey 76 3. BV-R / Caine 73 If BV-R and Caine are to stand a chance of winning, surely the 2nd Speed 12 is needed to take points away from the Lister and the Hayles Viper. Calum Lockie would be the ideal man for the job.

He is with the RML Saleen team, great to see that car in the Priviledge as well. Ian had a good run at Le Mans, until the engine let go in the early hours.
