It seems really unusual for a social media post that blunt to be true, and this is the 2nd / 3rd time Hollamby has posted a photo like this this silly season. To me, he is more than likely trying to stir up rumours... although the similiar type of posts regarding the MG switch turned out to be true! Like others have mentioned before, I think we're reading too much into this. I can't see it happening. Neither with Moffat.

Tordoff in the Dynamics Civic, on the other hand...

Hmmm... either Shaun and Sam (and young Mr Moffat) are just being canny generating some noise OR maybe the pair are running in the MGs.

Now we know Willie Poole has got them straightened and got some weight out too, so maybe Shauns mob can run them competitively: it was only last year they sucked with the full RML kit and next to zero testing. Prior to that, and especially when JP peddled, they were at the pointy end. The question is do AmD have the cash, staff and equipment that was evidently lacking under the Farmers stewardship?

N.B. my thinking also revolves around the budget requirements for the MG seats meaning the drivers may need less personal backing than elsewhere. We know RCIB are on-board...

There are 5 calendar clashes so a dual programme is not possible. James Nash maybe taking Sheddens' seat at Dynamics

Spoke with Tingram today at a wet Oulton Park track day and thought Iíd share that his avensis has been fully rebuilt and the Speedworks team and a few others are off to Portugal in a few weeks for 4 or 5 days testing and then plan about 6-8 more days before round 1 and said anything other than the OVERALL title would be a disappointing season.
* Was coaching young Louis Doyle from Clio juniors and found that series is not as equal as it looks.

The only spanner in the works if Iíve been told from a very good source that Huff has already signed a WTCR deal, plus Shedden whilst not officially confirmed was at ASI as a Dynamics driver!?! Could be an interesting twist here...............................

It'd be a real shame to lose Shedden to WTCR, but if someone is prepared to offer him a paid drive and the opportunity to race overseas I don't think we can begrudge him it. Lets be honest, we'd likely all do the same in his shoes!

It would be good for both Flash and the BTCC for him to join the WTCR.

Itís obviously a step up for Flash and when he does well it proves the level of competition in the BTCC.

There are some long term drivers in BTCC who would rather be a big fish in a small pond than prove themselves against international competition.

Or some who know where their fan base, sponsors and hence income is.

Apparently Flashís contract with Dynamicís ran until 8th January 2018, so could be why heís still been about with TD! Also might be coincidence he wasnít wearing any TD branded gear at ASI!
