Very interesting Twitter thread -https://twitter.com/stewartlines2/st...36069551726592

Seems Mr Gilham tried to offer Mr Lines a young driver with sponsors and a beanie hat. Offer declined.

It was in similar condition to the Mg that was started off but cancelled.

Ok, so the team has asked Ash to drive JPs car and provide feedback; it does seem therefore that BMR is not taking JP at face value when he says he feels the car is wrong. So they've asked Ash for his input.

Trust therefore must be near non existent; have JP and Faux had a disagreement too? These two have worked together very closely and with good results over the years.

He's still got 8 days 'til Snetterton...

Hopefully Neal Sr. has wrapped Matt in bubble wrap and placed him somewhere safe this summer. 😃

Interesting idea and a good one at that, try and see if it's true that something is wrong with the car or if Sutton really is doing that well or even both

I have heard that Sutton was quicker than Plato in both cars - but, that doesn't mean they weren't trying different things on each occasion.

Thing is with Plato is that he's never finished outside the top ten in the championship, so therefore it's probably a bit of a shock for all that midway through the season he's only 16th(?) with just one podium, and no wins. We've never had this situation before

Until last year he'd never finished outside the top five.

With Plato's results going downhill, one thing comes to my mind - isn't it the right moment for Jason to call time on his BTCC career? He's almost 50, has achieved a huge success in the series and I start doubting whether he will be capable of returning to winning ways.
You can say what you want, he's indeed a controversial racer but is undoubtedly one of the legends of BTCC and I bet it would be a good moment to farewell racing career now than after another one, two or three disappointing seasons.

Personally I have no doubt whatsoever that he would be on the podium every race with a car that he had confidence in. Whatever the reasons for that lack of confidence I don't think he's suddenly become a worse drive than the majority of the grid.

But he's not the only great driver on the grid, he's not the be all and end all and while he has added to the series on occasion, it's not just as simple as he needs a good car, the competition is a lot higher this season
