BLiTZ should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1) There'll be at least one news article halfway the the year from a team saying they'll have to switch to RWD next season.
2) BTC Norlin will only complete one season then go bankrupt and sell off everything (like UA).
3) Vauxhall will perform better/worse than expected for the first half of the season, and visa versa after the summer break.
4) At least one driver will sustain catastrophic damage to their car and will barely make it back for the next round. (Will likely start a go fund me page).
5) The Parker Focus' will be nowhere near as quick as the fastest Motorbase entry but will score equal/higher than the slowest one.
6) Moffat will get into an unnecessary scrap with a championship contender causing them to loose points.
6) Moffat will get into an unnecessary scrap with stablemate Morgan.
7) Shedden will be full of compliments for the 'Cracking little Civic' when he does well and moody as chuff when he doesn't.
8) At some point during the Donington weekend, ITV will mention Matt Neal being the first independent driver to win a BTCC race and winning 250k.

slummingangel should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1) Plato will be involved in an incident with another driver, which will hamper their weekend and put them out of the running come the final race meeting
2) There will be more non-Championship winners in the Final Top 5 than Championship winners
3) One Rookie will surprise most with a win and some podium finishes
4) Aforementioned Rookie's win will not be because of reverse grid
5) there wil be one podium with no English drivers on it i.e. Taylor-smith, Shedden, Turkington.
6) Presenters will struggle with Taylor-Smith's new name and will revert to calling him just Aron

You know the drill, 5 predictions just as we did last year http://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146694

Last year these were mine:

1) A Subaru Levorg won't complete any of the three races at Brands Hatch
2) Team HARD. will change one of their drivers at least once this season
3) Rob Austin will get a few podiums for Handy
4) Kelvin Fletcher will miss a round for filming commitments
5) MG will surprise a few people with their pace

So here are this year's:


1) Team HARD will win a race
2) We'll only have two new race winners
3) At least one manufacturer team will change at least one driver during the season
4) The Team HARD CCs will be referred to as 'Passat CCs' by at least one driver/commentator/interviewee at each round
5) Dave Newsham will find himself on the podium at Knockhill

Edit: In my excitable haste I appear to have missed out the 7 from the year. The 201 BTCC season was a good one so I've heard though.
Bump.

1) Nope. Not really even close.
2) Thank you Aidan and James, I believe I was spot on?
3) Yup. Cometh the hour leaveth the Dan Lloyd enter(eth) the Josh Cook.
4) Didn't keep track, but I will assume that happened.
5) Winning independent in Race 2, so I'll claim that.

Did Price and Cole not have a coming together at Croft? I know it probably wasn't the two teammates you meant when you posted that, but I'm sure you could claim it anyway!

4. Only 1 race all season will have 32 cars starting from the grid
5. Someone who crashes out on Lap 1 of Race 1 will crash out at the same spot in Race 30 (lap unspecified)
1. So close (0.001 at Silverstone)
2. Close again (1,1,5 with Cole on pole at Snet, 1,1,4 at Knock, 1,1,3 at Rock) but there were calls for BoP changes (probably by Collard)
3. No, just no
4. 6 races had 32 cars start (8 if including 1st start for red flag races)
5. Well Turkington retired in R30 but on the wrong straight

1. Depends if you mean all weekend or just raceday? And also if you just mean rain/wet track or if cars need to be on wets

4. Nope, only two (Moffat and Cole)

5. I think maybe Croft and Snetterton were the only ones?

4 - Vauxhall only claim 2 podiums all season, both through Chilton, as Proctor doesn't score a single top 6, and converts reverse grid pole into the turn 3 gravel trap (circuit unspecified)
5 - As per last year; no rain all season, before Silverstone and Brands Hatch GP are drenched
1 - I mean, it could have happened, but it didn't
2 - Oh dear, I got the right car but that's a poor showing
3 - Again, oh dear. If I swapped Plato and Sutton around it would be more accurate
4 - Wow they actually got 2 podiums - one through Huff though, whilst Proctor scores 6th place in round 28 and never claims a reverse grid pole...
5 - Donington Park Race 3, whilst Silverstone was nice and dry (as was Brands GP R2)...

So that equates to 0.25/5 by my calculations...

4. Mat Jackson will be the only Motorbase driver to get a podium & finish in the championship top ten.
5. There will be a record number of podium finishers this year, but not a record number of winners.
1. No - Newsham did, but Proctor was the surprise of the season for me.
2. Hmmm, you could argue this one, but think he certainly showed what he could do this year.
3. Yes. Very much so but JP just blamed the car and everything else.
4. Yes, by a country mile, though Davenport was improving before his shunt & Butcher did a great job stepping in mid season.
5. 17 different podium finishers by my count, but not sure if that was more than last year, though there were more winners, so I failed on that one!

So 2 maybe 3 depending on how you rate the most improved driver. Not bad but could do better! 😊
