I notices the Infiniti was at Glasgow's Ignition festival yesterday. Didn't run or anything, but still in the same livery as it was at Brands GP last year.

Good looking car as well, it's a real shame about the team that ran it.

I don't know why but it is a great shame that the team that ran Infiniti didn't even get an experienced driver in

I dont think it will attract an experienced driver after the numerous poor decisions and conduct that was demonstrated last year

Power Maxed Racing have announced today they are focusing on getting Newsham back into the BTCC. I can only assume for 2017. So..... will they be going the three car route, or ditching a current driver (imo Fletcher is more of a candidate to get the boot than Abbott).

The did look at getting the 3rd car they have (Stockton's old hatchback) up and running for this year (but convert it to a saloon) but no one had enough money to secure the ride (obviously they would if needed a TBL too) but with one up for grabs already (Ex-Dynamic's & Ex-Eurotech TBL) they could be looking at a 3rd car. However Abbott did struggle to get the funding in and I believe the price of the deal came down as the start if the season approached!

Plenty of musical TBL's in the off season again I think!

I love seeing Newsham in the BTCC, here he puts his car in front of where the car should be able to get

They race pick-ups in the States, so why not?

Heard today that there may be a driver coming up from the same series Chris Smiley came from but I wonder what existing team he would fit in to

was hearing on the grapevine a few weeks ago about Dave getting a drive at Knockhill with the words "it might not be a one off" added into the convo so hopefully with another decent weekend he can show some sponsors what he can do again
