crmalcolm should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Having had the time since their F1 pull-out, the time would be right for them to move into TC.
The WTCC seems to have too many political changes to make it worthwhile entering, leaving BTCC as possibly the next best option. TD have a proven track record with Honda machinery, and the Civic has taken a number of race wins since introduction.
I would assume Honda management would take all this into consideration and strive to enternow, gaining a foothold in the championship, and with funding could develop a NGTC model during 2010 ready for an all-out 2011 assault.

Plato's saying on crash.net that he would like to be in a Cruze next year, possibly with manufacturer backing. Also that he has first option on a Volvo drive should they enter.

With the change of the Brands Hatch GP BTCC date for 2010 he could also enter the WTCC round as a wild card. In fact any of the BTCC drivers/teams can now do so.

The calendar looks like a good order to run things next year.
I can't see any significant period where the cars are on fast tracks, twisty tracks or technical tracks. Should prevent one marque from running away with it all?

Fife in September will be a true test of the touring car fans, it is cold at knockhill on a sunny July day.

If you don't like the weather at Knockhill, give it five minutes.

Interesting again. I'd be VERY suprised if Chevrolet weren't keeping an interested eye on proceedings in the BTCC.

Im glad it will be back on the Brands GP circuit. Last weekend was proof (if needed ) of how good the current racing can be on the GP circuit!

888 was rumoured a while ago bearing in mind Vauxhall are pulling out. Then again it would involve customer cars from Polestar, perhaps Motorbase or Arena might be more interested ... or even someone else (not even in the BTCC - the likes of CR Scuderia?)!

I dont think Volvo will be there, Plato armed with the Cruze and RML would be a potent mix and more likely.
