HUGE NEWS - James Courtney has stepped back from Team Sydney, effective immediately!!

“We have not been able to agree on the way forward, so I have decided to depart the team. I wish Team Sydney all the best for the future,” Courtney said.

Courtney has no alternative arrangements in place and cannot comment on his future at this time.

Quote form Courtney - I haven’t got any other plans in place, so can’t really comment anymore at the moment. But my great relationship with @boostaus means that we will now be looking for some new opportunities - so watch this space....


It would my guess , But I reckon that Jonathon Webb won't bend to suit the Boost mold .

Both I'd say.....Adderton wanting to run things his way....Webb not wanting to spend money ( even though daddy has heaps )

I have a boost mobile plan, but I'm surprised this bloke has any idea how to run a business ?

Teckno....would you take your performance car to this bloke ??

It is sounding like a serious money issue perhaps.

Allegedly has been the case for a number of years with Tekno.

Chris Pither gave Auto Action a clip on FB over that report.

Peter Adderton (Boost Mobile) has given everyone a clip on Instagram.

Rod Salmon who was originally going to head up Team Sydney bailed not long after Tekno got involved.

The Webb's have a lot of money, but I struggle to see this team surviving the year in its current guise.

Watched the first episode of "the inside line" yesterday, I found it quite interesting. It's an 8 part series from behind the scenes in team Erebus through the 2019 season. It's on Fox 506 on Tuesday nights.

I'm going to record the iracing thing tomorrow night. Watched a few minutes of the indycar one from last week and wasn't a fan of it, but I'll leave my judgement until I watch ( if I can watch the whole race ) it tomorrow ??

Here is a Question for you Ohh learned ones of Racing history .
Came up in a conversation and Ive searched and drawn a blank ...  Target of this question is... How many Fords or Holdens fitted with automatic gearboxes raced in the Touring car series and Bathurst ..team ID  car number etc pics / leads  would be appreciated .. Not talking about the Modern sequential boxes ..
I seem to recall reading some where once,  there was an XY / Y type fitted with an auto that was raced and from memory again an XD Falcon in the Eighties ..
I think there may have been a Commodore auto aswel, early 80's ??  ..

There was someone that raced an auto at Bathurst but can't recall who it was and also think it was a Holden. 🤔

In 1968, there was a Falcon GT auto in the mix that was doing pretty good, but from memory, broke a rear axle.

I believe it was the downshifts that killed the axle.

Have never heard that rumor. The old autos would have been 3 speed, which would have been a lot slower than a manual.
I seem to remember a bloke running one in a v8, but can't remember if it was the touring cars or not......He had one or no legs ?

From memory, it Shit the axle coming off mountain straight to do the climb.
Pulling the auto back to second was hard on the driveline.

Its on tonight and yes Ill a have a look.

I have an iRacing set up so I have an interest in the simulator. I think you may be pleasantry surprised at just how entertaining this will be.

Given that it is the real drivers and the real commentators and there are no issues with wrecking cars I think itll be great to watch. Mind you Id watch wheel barrow racing.

Watch this little clip from a practice run on Monday night.

Thanks Kev, that narrowed the search down a bit .. 1968 one  XR Falcon GT Automatic raced  along with six  Other Falcon XT GT's .. will keep on digging .
The XT GT Automatic was red in colour # 7D Driven by Spencer Martin and Jim McKeown ..DNF
1969 Bathurst had an XW GT Automatic  # 68E, Driven by Charlie Smith and Bill Ford, finished  9 th outright .
