  • Ryan Briscoe/Wayne Taylor question

    Today's Robin Miller http://www.speedtv.com/articles/auto/champcar/20403/ article mentions Ryan Briscoe as possibly getting out of oval racing and only driving on road courses. It also mentions that his agent Wayne Taylor wishes to do that. Is this the same Wayne Taylor who owns and races in the Grand Am Series? Does anyone know?

    Yes, Wayne Taylor that drives in Grand-Am is Ryan Briscoe's agent.

      Did Briscoe bring any money with him when he went to TCGR? It would explain Chip's recent whining if he is trying to hang onto a paying driver. Just wondering.

        Probably a good decision on Ryan's part........ None of the current IRL tracks seemed quite big enough to contain Ryan.......

          I believe that Briscoe has had a working relationship with Toyota in the past.

            Don't be surprised to see Briscoe in a second Sun Trust Daytona Prototype with Emanuelle Collard.

              Briscoe was test driver for Toyota in F1, and came to Ganassi as a sort of "development" car for their program in the IRL. I believe that was mostly, if not all, covered by Toyota.

                The impression I got was that Ryan was under contract with Toyota, and they really didn't have a place for him so they sent him to Chips team because they didn't want to pay him for doing nothing.

                  thank god.. he was a danger to everyone this season.. im glad he didnt get really hurt this season cause he had no idea what he was doing on the ovals.. The IRL should make a requirement that if a driver has no oval experience that he has to run a few IPS races before he can race on a oval in the big cars..

                    I was fairly certain Briscoe's agent/manager is actually Max Angelleli, who is Taylor's teammate? Max also looks after Ricardo Zonta.

                      I think that I heard on Speednews or WindTunnel this weekend that Ryan Briscoe, Darren Manning, and a few other drivers were going to be competing for a seat on one of the CCWS teams in the weeks ahead. Sorry I can't recall the details. It was not a "Robing Miller" report, but he could have been the source.

                        They had better have more than two cars if they don't want to go home early.

                          That makes sense, as Max was hanging out with the TCGR gang at Homestead.
