  • Marcus Marshall fired...

    Marcus has apparently gotten the axe... it looks like he didnt something majorly wrong judging by the wording of the contract. Im guessing he skipped out on his Aussie promotion duties... thats a good way to get the boot after a season like hes had.

    Will Power probably gets the seat for Mexico, and no third car im guessing. Will proved to be faster than Marcus anyway...

    I hope Craig Gore does not TRY to put him in his V8Supercar team...even as an Endurance driver.

    At Bathurst Marcus was faster than Tagliani, but both of them were slowish and 6 laps down at the end of the race. t least they finished. Their low qualifying position saved them a massive crash , that wiped out the fastest part of the field.

      I'm guessing it was intended for Will to take that seat anyway - he is now on a 3-year deal with Team Australia.

          come on - even a blind man could see this coming.

          He got the boot because he was crap.

            Here's the press release from the team's web site:

            October 27, 2005
            Marcus Marshall Out at Team Australia
            Statement Regarding Team Australia
            October 27, 2005 - Today it has been decided to terminate the agreement between Marcus Marshall and WPS because of certain breaches. Consequently Marcus Marshall will no longer be driving for Team Australia in the Champ Car World Series.

            The breaches were serious and substantial and occurred before the Surfers Paradise event.

            Given the significance of the Surfers Paradise event to Champ Car, Queensland and Australia, there was a resolve to defer all decisions until after the Surfers Paradise race. This allowed time for proper consideration of all the circumstances.

            After careful consideration of the breaches it was unanimously agreed to by all team owners (Craig Gore, Derrick Walker, John Fish) to terminate Marcus Marshall's driver and sponsorship agreement effective immediately.

            It is disappointing for all concerned, however the breaches were considered incapable of being remedied by all team owners.

            Given the termination and the form and nature of the agreement, no further comments can be made.

            After years of fighting and a split, guess what, we are all IndyCar

            October will always be a sad racing month for me. RIP Greg and Dan. You both were great and we miss you.

                Alex Yoong, who wanted to be a V8Supercar driver for Gore in his WPS team, was as diplomatically dispatched as Marshall. Craig Gore said of the ex-F1 aspirant" He can promote himself, very well, but he cannot drive"
