Matt K should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I agree, it would be great to see Strandberg full time in BTCC. A foreign driver would be a nice addition to the field. Hopefully Lines will not return as a driver. With all respect, he's not quite that level.

Don't let ATS hear you refer to the need for a foreign driver.

Seriously though, I do get the point of extending the appeal beyond the British/Irish shores.

Haha yeah you're right, of course he's Irish but I meant someone outside of British Isles. And, hey, I didn't say about the first foreign driver, I could as well meant another foreign driver!

Strandberg ain't that much. Didn't have a good STCC season and ran out of funds before the end of the season.

Because he has a fancy surname? There are plenty of domestic drivers who are good enough. Giovanardi has been the only non-UK driver to actually be any good on a consistent level in the past ten years and he was only here because the General paid for him.

No sign of a HARD hashtag and nowt from Tony that I've found.

As Tonys style is bigging up publicity then reasonably safe assumption it's not HARD.

I'm thinking Mr Hollamby...

But... Spine Eyewear and HARD have been interacting on social media, so still possible?

Jake Hill's reference to 'title' could mean a new title sponsor, and Spine may have placed a publicity embargo?

Entirely possible Mr Malcolm.

I know TG really rates Jake and would be doing anything in his power to retain him.

Waiting game...

Its going to be interesting to see how he adapts to the car as its the complete opposite to a V8 Supercar. Sure he was there mainly because his dad paid his way but he did make some improvement over the season so there is some talent there. Maybe its a different path that brings better results for him.

Perhaps some time in Pomgolia might lead to a well needed attitude adjustment.
Heaven forbid he should develop a work ethic what with Daddies $$$ and all
