BTCC Rounds 22/23/24 Rockingham 2017

Quick word of warning for anyone going to Rockingham this weekend

http://www.rockingham.co.uk/event/du...-championship/

Spectator Information:

Following a recent Safety Advisory Group required inspection of the Turn 1 Grandstand, we have been informed that we are unable to open it for this weekend’s Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race event.

We realise this will be disappointing news for some spectators who use this grandstand, however unfortunately these circumstances are beyond our control.

The Rockingham Building will be fully open over the weekend, providing ample unreserved seating for spectators.

Hopefully Rob Austin will get his first win of the season having gone well here before.

HARD / TAG should be strong too, no reason why Hill & Epps can't fight for podiums.

Might make finding space in the main stand tougher, bit of a shame, oh well.

Rockingham is a strange place (although to be fair I've only been there once and visiting in December probably doesn't show it at its best). What's access like at the BTCC meets? Can you get onto the pit garage roof or are you stuck in the grandstands?

Well, given the spectator announcement you'll be limited in terms of grandstands to the Rockingham Building this weekend. However, from the lovely website:

As always at Rockingham all tickets include access to a grandstand seat offering panoramic views of the entire circuit, the pit garage roof and race paddock, which means there are no hidden costs

So you're all good there.

Bit unfortunate those circumstances

This is gonna be a hard one to pick a winner. It could go anybody's way.

Would love to see Jelley doing well on a circuit he has won twice at

Its not like Rockingham are short of grandstands!

Personally I hate the place and would not venture there to view.
The only decent place to watch is the approach to the hairpin and of course you are not allowed stand or sit there.

Great drive by Cole there, well done!

It's so close, that extra half tenth makes all the difference.

Great session that because just look at the timings, not so much the positions. We're all in for some close action tomorrow.

Nice driving by Cole there, getting better and better.

Don't worry. Your precious Hondas will still win the title. 5 out of 6 NGTC driver titles remember!

If a mixture of FWD and RWD make up the front of the grid, and less than half a second separates the top 14, you know that no one has a significant advantage and the BoP is about right.
Cole has been improving a lot lately, putting in some impressive performances and did the best job today. You seem to find it hard to give credit to Cole for his drive, if they had too much advantage wouldn't Price be up there too?

Hats off to Cole, great lap! If those who are knocking him consider the fact JP in the same car couldn't match him & neither could Price! Ash has weight on board and was not far behind Cole. Seem's he's found his Formula Ford form

I think porsche962fan has jumped to a conclusion far too early, but it is quite amusing that after Knockhill people kept saying RWD would be no where at Rockingham and it's actually all fine. Well...lol.
