Tingram's improving, he certainly has a good engineer in Geoff and overtime he'll find a balance of knowing when to fight and when to hold back

Out of the 'old' Toyotas it looks like the've had their final race as a Team HARD will be upgrading, so that's they ex-Lines/Wood car, the two ex-United Autosports cars (HARD only used 1 of them this year) & an ex-Speedworks machine. It would leave Welch's Proton as the oldest NGTC car running if they keep it (if my memory serves me correctly).
Just being curious, do you know what chassis Motorbase has run this season? Are these their cars from 2013 with the oldest one from mid-2012 as backup or did they use younger chassis than that?
The MGs are also aging a bit aren't they. I'd assume the old Plato car has been shelfed. Being the one that's taken the most hits

Not sure, I know Motorbase had a newer shell which was being readied for a 3rd car at some point (not recently of course). The two oldest chassis went to Parker/Dextra and AmD (then on to Maximum), I think but not sure (so someone please correct me if I'm wrong) that the Maximum Motorsport (ex AmD) car is the oldest Ford, then the Dextra/Parker one.

Yeah the MG's are getting on by comparison to a lot of cars on the grid now! Heard that should change ahead of next year though...............................

Correct
Maximum have chassis 1 - Jackson 2012/13, AMD 2014/15
Dextra have chassis 2 - Smith 2013, Crabbies 2014

Jackson was in chassis 4, same car he has used since 2014
Jordan was in chassis 5, which is the one Cole drove 2015

Cheers Redshoes, I have tried keeping track of who's in what car & where they go, but the memory isn't always so good at recalling it, plus shuffling of cars after accidents can see changes than aren't always publicised.

Thanks for the information. Do you know why 888 isn't using the ex Hynes car? From memory that should be two years younger than the other two?

I might be wrong, but I got the impression the chassis belongs to Hynes himself and is presumably in storage somewhere?!

Yep the car belonged to Hynes, it was up for sale a year or so ago (maybe 2), not sure if anyone ever purchased it though!
