  • Is this "Alex Lloyd to Vision" rumor a done deal??

    Cavin seems to think it is. Is he a "loaner" from TCGR or something? Does Tracy's new free agency put dampers on this plan, or does TG add a fourth car for Tracy, and then a 5th at Indy for Davey?

    I think its been a known factthat Chip had planned to loan Lloyd out to a team.

    PT has been rumored to be going to drive for Chip and Chip contacted Paul's people during that contract issue Paul was having.

      So Lloyd gets "layed off" to Vision for a full season, and PT gets a 3rd TCGR car for a full year?

        I haven't read the articles about Tracy not wanting a ride with Vision but have seen the threads. Having said that, how about this scenario--TCGR was going to have Lloyd as part of the team but now that Tracy is stating he'll only go to a top team TG is taking Lloyd on at Vision instead and opening up a spot at TCGR for Tracy. Doing this would mean that Davey would still just be a 4th car at Indy.

        Doubt that's what it is but figured everyone else throws out WAGs so I might as well too


        EDIT: I see a few people got on while I was typing. Maybe my WAG isn't so wild

          Would Vision be able to find a 3rd car (or anyone else for that matter) given that they seem to be scarce until beginning of May?

            Vision was reported as having 10 chassis.

              ... but giving away how many of the 10 to former CCWS teams?

                Chip wanted Tony to run Alex but Tony said Chip wasn't willing to pay Tony to run Alex.

                So Tony said jokingly that if Chip wants him to run Alex, then maybe he would ask Chip to run Paul.

                  This isn't a done deal. If it was, then Alex would had taken some laps at Homestead this week. I feel bad for Alex. He's been waiting to know what's going to happen this season for him for a long time.

                    Yeah - I was under the same impression. However, I do hope that
                    Vision does add at least a 3rd car for Indy with Davey Hamilton.
                    That was a solid drive last May.

                        Along those lines, Ralf Schumacher made the comment about being the best driver in F1 last year. Someone posted a comment to the article saying it was unlikely he was even the 3rd best driver in his family.

                          Alex has only had one day testing in Indycars I think? If he does get a drive, he'll be way disadvantaged, even less testing than the CCWS guys. Difficult to see how he'd be up to speed before mid-season at least

                            Unless they allow him to test with the former CC teams, like Marty Roth Racing is doing.

                              I thought TG's quote with regard to PT had more to the story.

                              I think Cheep wants TG to pay PT to run for Cheep, while unloading AL on TG for a year while still retaining AL's Contract. Couldn't deduct who pays for AL's 08 season.
