Not possible - the IndyCar finale at Sonoma is the same weekend.

What's Andy Sugden doing nowadays?

PMR would be perfectly entitled to claim force majeure and not field the second car at Silverstone.

It is a medical exclusion that is stopping Chilton from racing so the team may elect to save some money/accident damage and not take 2 cars. Senna is leading the Jack Sears Trophy but neither team or drivers are in line for the major championships.

I don't think that would be the case. Their entry is for every event in the season, and there is nothing wrong with the car preventing them from entering.
There is also provision in the regulations for a substitute driver so no force majeure is stopping them racing.
Finally, given the Gow publicity centred around 'manufacturer' involvement, I'm certain he would be seen to see someone in the car.
The purpose of TBL's included prevention of withdrawal due to cost, so potential costs wouldn't be tolerated as a reason to withdraw.

its not force majeur if the team have 10 days to find a substitute driver!

All the articles said an announcment would be made soon, their latest tweet backs that up:

"We are lucky to have so many great options to replace @TomChilton_ at @SilverstoneUK for @DunlopBTCC we are confident of another superstar"

...so it's safe to say they will be 2 Vauxhalls. Another thought was Bobby Thompson, didn't he test the PMR Cruze a while back?

Thompson is at the bar...

Expecting a young gun with some budget for one round.

at least that sorted and that good news on the TBL front for Power maxed racing.

now all depends on the Cook appeal to see if we have 31 cars or 32 cars starting race 1

Great news.

Rob has been very clever this season. With the WTCC potentially unstable, he's been putting himself out there for drives in other series. He's been a guest of Chilton for multiple BTCC rounds this season, seems the hanging around had been beneficial.

The BTCC gets better and better and now with this pleasant surprise of Huff making a one off appearance is further proof. Just adds to the quality we have this season. Only Stewart Lines has really done nothing, but he's only there to keep the TBL for next season

Justified or just a way to get more column inches for the brand?
