    导出博客文章Supercars Hall of Famer Garry Rogers has vowed to be on the grid at the Clipsal 500 next season and is ramping up his campaign to make it happen. .With just two race meets left in the season, Rogers Volvo-backed team remains in limbo after the Swedish manufacturers announcement of plans to pull out of the sport.Rogers is arguing a case to retain their Volvo partnership - both through the legal system and in the court of public opinion.The 71-year-old is hoping a one-year extension to their deal would give his team a new lease of life and provide Volvo with a more-dignified exit.We really just want to get on with the racing, he told Fox Sports Inside Supercars program.We have been approached by another manufacturer halfway through the program but, according to our contract, we couldnt speak to them so we didnt.We went back to Volvo and said give us one year of the existing program - forget about the three years. If you give us one year, we will back ourselves to get another deal up for the following season.Weve got 36 people who need to do their job.Rogers took Volvo to the Federal Court in the hope of forcing a resolution that would allow them to race in 2017.The veteran won an order to begin mediation but, should that process not bear fruit, a future court date pencilled for February would cruel their chances of preparing properly for next season.Rogers believes their contract with Volvo gives them the right to retain their chassis for 2017.Weve done a fantastic job with these cars. Lets face it - Volvo is a fantastically safe car but it didnt really have a sporting presence, he said.Whether you like us or whether you hate us, we did a bloody good job in making it acceptable to the public and people that would have never thought about it before.This is a very untidy situation but I think that the upper echelons of the Volvo management will take control of it and realise its not doing a lot for their brand.Rogers didnt shed any light on their driver situation.Scott McLaughlin, who is fourth in the championship and has a mathematical chance of winning the title in the event of a Triple Eight catastrophe, is leaving the team next year for DJR Team Penske.Young gun James Golding could be elevated to drive alongside James Moffat but Rogers suggested a driver resolution had to come after a settlement with his manufacturer.We will be there (in 2017) with those cars - and I hope with those engines - but we will be working as hard as we possibly can to achieve that end. . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St. . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany -- David Silvas sole strike before the break was enough for Manchester City to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League with a 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach on Wednesday.Both sides finished with 10 men as `Gladbach captain Lars Stindl and City defender Fernandinho were both shown their second yellow cards for tactical fouls in the second half.The draw took City to eight points in Group C, four behind Barcelona, which qualified with a 2-0 win at Celtic. City will finish second due to its head-to-head record against Moenchengladbach, which is three points behind and assured of Europa League participation in third place. Celtic is last with two points.You have to also stay grounded. Were very happy to have secured third place from a very complicated game, Moenchengladbach coach Andre Schubert said. Its an important step for us.His side had been struggling of late, winless in its last four games including the disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Celtic, but it started well in front of its vocal home fans.Fabian Johnson tried his luck before Stindl shrugged off John Stones and cut the ball back for Raffael to blast past the despairing Claudio Bravo midway throough the half. It was the Brazilians first Champions League goal of the season and a deserved lead for the home side.Back in Germany following his summer move from Borussia Dortmund, Ilkay Gundogan drew a fine save from Moenchengladbach `keeper Yann Sommer as City sought a response.Oscar Wendt then surged past two defenders at the other end only for Bravo to come to the visitors rescue.City finished the half strongly. Sergio Aguero should have equalized when he shot too close to Sommer, but there was still time before the break for Silva to poke home Kevin De Bruynes cross from close range after Raheem Sterling sent the Belgian through on the right.Sterling had another goal ruled out after the break, just before Stindl was sent off for a shoulder-block on Nicolas Otamendi.Citys numerical advantage was canceled when Fernandinho was shown his second yellow for a foul on Raffael in the 63rd.Silva had another goal ruled out for offside but there were few complaints with a draw suiting both sides.Were just happy that were through to the last 16, De Bruyne said.
