STATEMENT FROM ALAN GOW - MANAGER FOR JAMES COURTNEY

Alan Gow, Manager for V8 Supercar Championship leader James Courtney, has issued the following response to media reports today claiming the Jim Beam Racing Ford Falcon driver was "defecting to Holden" in 2011.

"Whilst it's very flattering that the media are speculating so much over James' future, I can categorically state that he/we have not signed any contract or agreement for James to drive for any other team or manufacturer next year: None. Zip. Nil. Zero.

"Let me be very clear on this; James is contracted to Dick Johnson Racing and that is the only contract or agreement in existence for him to drive in the V8 Supercar Championship. I really can't put it any more plain than that.

"People may try to pick over my words and look for a loop-hole in what I am saying, but there is none, because anything else reported in the media has absolutely no basis of fact whatsoever.

"Enough is enough. James remains 100-percent focused on winning this year's championship, and delivering more race wins for both his team and Ford fans who have supported him for many years."

NOTE: James Courtney has raced Ford Falcons since joining the V8 Supercar Championship fulltime in 2006. The JELD-WEN sponsored driver leads this year's series by 71 points ahead of Jamie Whincup after 11 of the 14 rounds. The 12th round will be at Symmons Plains in Tasmania from this Friday to Sunday (Nov 12-14).
