In a move reminiscent of Shane van Gisbergen’s three day “sabbatical year” at the end of the 2012 season, Boost Mobile has decided maybe it does want to be in Supercars after-all and turned up at Team Sydney for some reason.
The news probably comes as a bit of a surprise to Garry Rogers, who packed up and headed over to another series that Supercars doesn’t speak the name of at the end of 2019 after Boost Mobile threw a tanty and “left” the series.
Speaking to The Waterton Sports Chronicle, a spokesperson for Boost Mobile said they were looking forward to being “back at the pointy end” after team owner Jonathan Webb told them they’d definitely be going straight from the back of the field in 2019 to winning the championship this season.
“Yeah Jono has been really upfront with us about the capabilities of the team this season.” explained the spokesperson.
“He explained to us that having an unlimited supply of Coke has made all the difference. James (Courtney) and Chris (Pither) are so wired up all the time they are going to be unstoppable.”.
This reporter understands that Team Sydney and Boost Mobile are already in the process of trying to coax Richie Stanaway away from his PlayStation and glowsticks in time for the enduro series later in the year.
“We all saw over the last couple of years what Richie brings to the series. That time he drifted around Townsville was bloody hilarious. And the way he engages with his fans is something most of the other drivers could really learn from.”.
