“Mate, don’t bother fucking ringing back but a journalist just told me Ford are going to cut our funding. They’re still going to cut our funding. They’re still going to give us minor support, but I don’t know to what level so I’m not going to go off yet. Let me deal with the fuckers first. Don’t blame me if the shit hits the fan.”

Racing legend Dick Johnson, to Dick Johnson Racing director Charlie Schwerkolt.

 

Johnson’s son Steven said, “He was in shock and so he should have been. My God, the things he has done for Ford over the last 38 years or so. It just goes to show that with a change of management, some companies will just chuck you out the door.”

 

Schwerkolt said:

“It is devastating news, it really is. We didn’t expect it. Dick was in Darwin and he found out off the media. He just couldn’t believe it, He swore a lot and he was absolutely gutted. We are all part of the family at Ford.”
