Alfisti should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I dont think it's a typo. For him to turn up at BMR ("who they?" many would have said at the time) a few months later in a virtually sponsor free car suggests the exit from 888 was not planned in advance - it does to me anyway. JP always prior to this move turned up as part of a big deal of some description with lashings of sponsorship.

I think Warren Scott threw a lifeline whilst thinking "Blimey Charlie, I've landed two of the best in the business now".

Unless he shares a seat with someone we won't see Huff on the grid unless it’s like last years cameo. WTCR has too many calendar clashes.

Looks like Ingram will be back at Speedworks -

"Awesome news from @Autosport_Show @torqracewear continue to support Speedworks drivers in 2018. @Tomingram80 will wear the latest Torq Superlight 1 suit during the @DunlopBTCC season #ASI18 #motorsport #fashion #race-different" - Speedworks on Twitter

The question though, is in what?

Yeah he’s definitely back with Speedworks, though couldn’t get him to spill the beans on the car situation. They are off to Portugal testing next month.

Touring Car Ragister on Facebook updating the registery with HMS chassis number 1:

“Unveiled at the Autosport Show this week, the HMS Racing Alfa Romeo to be driven by Rob Austin. The first of this years new NGTC cars. More cars to follow....”

Nigel you tease! I read that as more to come in addition to the Focus RS’ and Dynamics Civics I guess?

Because people are really reading too much into statements and tweets etc, then over analysing them and coming up with something completely wrong.

Is he definitely returning to WTCR then? I thought he was keener on the BTCC?

Has anyone thought that this weeks announcements at Autosport Show lacked the “I never saw that one coming!” effect. The new cars and drivers had been known about before the show, are teams unveiling at the show getting fed up of being news on Thursday for 30 mins till the next car/driver reveal.

Teams who issue a press release in the days before the show can get publicity for the whole day.

Isn't that half the fun of silly season?
