I was wondering who an earlier reference to a team from the early 2000s being similar to Hard was.
Thanking ye

The answer is YES. From Porsche's Press Department "All Am category drivers will – for the first time – benefit from an adjustable ABS system, providing increased confidence under braking for those who wish to use it."

They won't be at Tuesday's final preseason test.

...so strong on consistency at least.

This is very true, although they just about managed to do so last year.

It will be fine. Team HARD will be at the first race with all of their cars and you will all look very silly. Honestly dont know why you dont show Gilham some respect tbh, look what hes done in the sport. Amazing things. Always putting quality out there on the grid. Without him youd be watching NAPA v BMW

I would assume that this is supposed to be a sarcastic posting; however, you need to be clear that that is what it is supposed to be, otherwise some members will take it at face value. Especially those who have been adversely affected by the HARD affair in the past.

Never in the field of touring car stitch-ups was so much owed to so many by so few?

I dont know about this, the team is still in business and allowed to compete so it cant be that bad?

I remember reading last year that Porsche were considering introducing ABS and other driver aids for Am drivers - I wonder if they actually did? If they want to bill PCCGB as a series for Pro and Pro-Am, then they need to return to the pre-2018 structure of an overall championship table for everyone, and then a sub-championship that Pro-Ams (or perhaps drivers over a certain age) can score towards.
Just watching PCC France and they have the same issue with Pro AM entries. Just 3 for the first weekend.

I think it's going to start coming out in the wash soon enough. Even some of the Gilham & Allen family don't know how bad things are.

Maybe time for TOCA to do some more due diligence as part of the entry process. I know Gow is spinning it that a smaller grid was what he wanted all along, but I would respectfully suggest not this small, this quickly.

The elephant in the room is the looming renewal of BTCC promoter and TV coverage for 2026, and I suspect a new potential promoter will emerge as an option for MSUK to consider.

After their success running British F4 and the BRC in house, MSUK may consider doing the same with the BTCC.
