Only if you assume that Plato is lying about there being something wrong with his car after the crash at Brands.

He was the fastest of all the Subarus at Brands and half a second faster than Cole on that small circuit.

I wouldn't say that. There are a lot of people on social media saying that this season is a bit flat with Plato at the back.

As an Ingram/Turkington fan I should be really enjoying this season but so far I'm not impressed with it. Too many red flags and there just doesn't seem too be an edge to it.

Depends on how you define 'a lot'.

No moaning here, just stepping up to an extremely competitive field. Classy move, Jackson - http://www.btcccrazy.co.uk/btcc/mat-...t-oulton-park/

Article currently on Autosport stating TOCA will be investigating the boost calculations on the Ford and Subaru after spotting an anomaly with how the power is used. Both engines are built by Mountune and only they suffer with it. They can make any changes up to 30 minutes before usage so will be monitored all weekend by sounds of it

He still was about that if you look at best lap charts.
JP vs JC

R5 - 1:11.471 vs 1:12.353
R6 - 1:21.250 vs 1:22.189
R7 - 1:17.971 vs 1:18.549
R8 - 1:19.556 vs 1:19.529
R9 - 1:18.045 vs 1:18.483

After his 'big jump forward', and solving the Subaru riddle - he's moved from being nearly 1s a lap quicker than Cole to 0.5s quicker!

At the same time, his delta to Sutton at R6 was 0.1s and at R9 was 0.5s.
I don't buy that it was a problem carried over from Brands, which has now been solved, because the numbers don't reflect that. He was still off Sutton's pace in sector 2 - so perhaps he should turn the engine up a bit?

I rest my case
Oh of course! That explains why he hasn't ever exceeded 19th in the drivers' championship- it all makes sense now- it's all Plato's fault for that fateful day at Silverstone! He must have seen it coming because somehow it affected his results before that day too!

You, my friend, are a genius! Well done.

Impressive from both Sutton and Cook to be running as high as they did whislt down on power, then?

Sutton VS Turks for pole?

My money is a strong showing from both Sutton and Jordan, RWD and less weight.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but how do the drivers adjust the boost? can they do it from inside the car?

As I understand it, all teams use the same Garrett/Owen turbo unit which has a manually adjusted pressure control regulator attached to the compressor housing. This is adjusted to a set pressure for each car, and the setting is checked under scrutineering.
There is no option for drivers to make a change from within the car.

Sounds promising. Looks hopeful that 888, BMR and Motorbase will all be quicker this weekend - could be even closer and more competitive at the front!

Will be interesting to see if Ingram can hang on as the leader, certainly very impressive so far, though I think Turks will take over at the top within the next two rounds

Well he did well at Donny, before first that collision with his team mate, then throwing it off in R3
