V8 Supercars CEO James Warburton Predicts Ford Will Stay In The Race
V8 Supercars CEO James Warburton "is hopeful one of Australia’s greatest sporting rivalries will continue," according to James Phelps of the Sydney DAILY TELEGRAPH. Warburton is "confident Ford will keep its war with Holden raging by recommitting to the sport." Holden "ended speculation over its future" in Australian motorsport earlier this week by re-signing with Red Bull Racing. He has "now shifted the focus on to Ford." Warburton revealed V8 Supercars "were helping FPR to negotiate a new deal with Ford and discussions were ongoing." Warburton said, “A decision on the future is premature at this stage but we see little reason why they would not continue to support their fans’’(DAILY TELEGRAPH, 5/8).
