BTCC 2017 Rumours & Silly Season

so with 2016 under way and the rumours starting already I feel the need to start this thread. So far I have heard

Support our Paras are looking to return to the series
Richard Hawken is looking at a return to the series
Team Hard are planning something (https://twitter.com/tonygilham34/sta...09762336870400)


The following questions over 2017 also exist:

Will Halfords Honda find a driver or even sell their 3rd car ?
Will Eurotech receive the ability to continue to run their 3rd car ?
Will BKR continue to run in the championship
Will the Subaru look like a championship winning car going into 2017 ?
Will we see Simon Belcher return alongside Austin at Handy
Will Andrew Jordan make a move to his 3rd team in 3 years

With all of the answers revealing themselves over time I am sure that 2017 is going to be as good or better than the 2016 season !

Regarding your last point. When interviewed on TV after winning Race Two today he was (rightly) full of praise for Motorbase and clearly said that he's planning on staying with the team for a very long time...

I'll hazard a guess that Gordon Shedden will drive a Honda.

The silly season really has started early now!

Can we get at least 66% of the 2016 season done before the rampant speculation and wishful thinking posts?

Toyota to enter a squad of Priuses, sponsored by the Guild of Mini Cabs.

Honda to switch to new Type R CRV SUV with rear wheel drive.

Andy Neate to claim he will enter the Championship and beat Matt and Flash...

Ah hem, as is now customary every few months, looks who is creeping back out of their shell:

Maybe I should sit back and have a coke, I wonder if I can get people to contribute to a 10 pack...
The paddock can well do without them
