BTCC 2018 Annual Predictions Thread

The natural successor to this and not to be confused with Pimmy's excellent Championship.

Here are mine from last year:

1) Team HARD will win a race
2) We'll only have two new race winners
3) At least one manufacturer team will change at least one driver during the season
4) The Team HARD CCs will be referred to as 'Passat CCs' by at least one driver/commentator/interviewee at each round
5) Dave Newsham will find himself on the podium at Knockhill

So here are this year's

2018

1) Norlin will surprise everyone with either a lot of pace, or a serious lack of it after such a good debut campaign.
2) There will be at least three permanent changes of driver this season, one of which will involve Team Hard.
3) The phrases 'best season ever' 'quality has never been higher' and 'pinnacle of UK motorsport' will all be said during the ITV coverage of the first and last rounds.
4) Dan Cammish will be in with a mathematical chance of the title at the final round, and will outscore Matt Neal come the end of the season.
5) The Subarus will win a total of one race win - and Sutton will be the man who will score it.

BillWiskins should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1. Rob Austin to win in the Alfa in the first half of the season igniting championship ambitions which never come to fruition
2. Cammish to bag at least three wins
3. Ingram qualifies pole but drops it / has it dropped for him on the first lap
4. Another anonymous year for Subaru, even though Sutton goes into Brands GP with a mathematical chance after a lot of hard charging
5. The 60th Anniversary long race will be quite dull.

1) All 7 of the RWD cars will finish in the top 10 of the 60th special race due to tyre wear.
Alternate 1) Or someone will use a tactical tyre change during a safety car in that race and come from behind and win.
2)The Honda teams will complain about RWD dominating at Knockhill, despite them having dominated Thruxton.
3) Every driver will have scored at least 10 points.
4) Someone from the front 3 rows in the 1st race at the season opener will loose the back end at paddock hill bend on the first lap.
5) Cook will outscore Chilton.

1. By the end of the season every make of car, except one, will see the podium at some point.
2. In the second half of the season, a championship contender(in the Top 5) will have an absolute howler of a weekend, ruining any chance of winning the championship.
3. There will be a high profile retiree at the end of the season.
4. 10th will be the the most prevalent choice for grid reversal.
5. there will never be a podium where the sum of their race numbers is less than or equal to 10.

1. Subarus will run badly, though Sutton will punch above weight and score more points than his teammates combined.
2. One of the HARD drivers will drop out and be replaced.
3. JP will not return in 2019 unless in a coaching capacity.
4. Ash Sutton will run one of the Aussie Supercar enduro events as a co-driver.
5. Ollie Jackson will get a podium.
6. Rob Collard will be eliminated from the Championship with a grim weekend at Knockhill or Rockinghan.
7. Colin Turkington will be the most boring interviewee of the year.
8. JP will use more excuses than pretty much everybody else combined as he won't be allowed to say the team has very little budget.
9. Motorbase won't be very good.
10. The new Honda will end the season as the most competitive car ala Subaru in 2016.

Okidoke, let's have a go at this...

1) A BMW will win the first race of the season
2) Subarus will be off the pace until Oulton
3) Cammish to win JST
4) Jake Hill will get his first race win
5) PMR to score their first race win
6) And finally, I'm going to say that there will be... 3 driver changes over the season.

1) BTC Norlin will win a race. Probably James Nash but who knows.
2) PMR will win a race.
3) Alfa will struggle early on either with pace or reliability but win a race in the second half of the season.
4) Dan Cammish will be the first JST driver to score an overall podium and will win that championship.
5) Multiple JST drivers will get an overall podium.
