You would think that if the deal was done, HRT would have been hot out of the box to announce they had signed up newly crowned champion Courtney to drive next year. I'm sure they would love everyone to know they have the number 1 on the side of the car. What is going on!?

This has to be the bigest question so far to where the new champ is heading too.

I dunno, matt, it doesn't make any sense to me, either.  I can only suggest that the contract is still being worked on, terms and conditions being finalised, all that stuff.  That is, if the strong rumor is true - we still have conflicting reports about who he's signed with, and no clarification or confirmation from anyone!

I think you might find that Courtney has to wait until the management change (Charlie leaving) is finalised before he can exercise the out clause in his contract that would then free him up to sign elsewhere and make an announcement.

That is of course assuming he still wishes to leave.

you could find that most contracts go until 31/12/10 and any announcements cant be made till after that.
Perkins used to do this and made the drivers stick to it.

Probably is the case that no one can say anything till the contract is completed and the new one is signed on the dotted line.

I was under the impression that all drivers had to be nominated by Wednesday just gone, I was reading that on one of the motorsport sites over the weekend

Rusty that is the impression the media give, the reality is the entrants must be done by the specified date. The entrant is basically the name the REC will run under more or less, as you see the names appear in any media or on pit signs etc, like the kellys I believe the business is Motorsport Holdings or used to be anyway but enter as JDR, if you get what I mean.
Drivers themselves are open until usually around 5pm of the day before practice of any event. But for the media it does sound good to say the grid will be finalised by a certain date.

Well, we now have confirmation on where he WON'T be driving - DJR has confirmed Courtney will not be racing for them in 2011.

http://www.v8supercars.com.au/newsarticle/courtney-departure-confirmed/tabid/70/newsid/10811/default.aspx

The article goes on to say an announcement on his driving future, probably at HRT, will be made this week.

Well if he has got the drive in the number 18 car then good luck to him. I did not feel he had done much this year and thought we would see him doing another in the second tier class. But who know he may step up and do well. time will tell.
