BobJones should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1. Despite Chilton talking about a title challenge, Sam Tordoff will actually be the leading Motorbase driver across the season, being within a mathematical title chance come Brands GP.

2. Tim Harvey will say "The cream will always rise to the top" ad nauseam, especially at the final round.

3. James Nash will win two races, people on TenTenths will still refer to his grid interview from 2010.

4. Fans, spectators, rival teams and commentators will talk about a RWD start advantage when really it's a WSR BMW start advantage.

5. Tom Boardman will deploy maximum defence mode for 15th place, causing all sorts of mayhem

thlbtcc should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1. Tom Ingram will challenge for the title
2. Just like 2017, Jason Plato will win at Knockhill and we'll call it a comeback even though it really isn't
3. Even with a weight penalty, Colin Turkington will remain a world-class act
4. Dan Camish will get up to speed, challenge Matt Neal for pace, but ultimately have to play second fiddle and protect his teammate
5. Jack Goff and Rob Austin will be up the sharp end, but only after the first three rounds when championship ballast affects the works Hondas and BMWs

Hrm... bit tricky this year with so many "young guns" stepping up. However...

1. One or more of Plato, Neal, and Collard (elder) will retire from the BTCC at the end of the season.
2. Cammish will be ahead of Neal in the points by mid-season, becoming de facto number 1 driver for Honda
3. We'll have another first-time champion
4. The change of circuit colours at Donington will have loads of people going all misty-eyed for the "good old days"
5. The new surface at Silverstone will be blamed for an enormous qualifying shunt which takes two cars out of contention for the entire weekend

Snetterton 2010, on the grid, he said something along the lines of "I'm better than the other drivers here" and then promptly threw it into the cornfield from the lead.

Started the perception that he's over-hyped or big-headed. But all racing drivers need self-belief and I think he's an excellent driver who will do well this season.

So long as he remembers it's a second hand Honda, not a brand new combine harvester!

1. Butcher will win at least 1 race in the MG
2. Mat Jackson will be back from Snetterton onwards
3. Tony Gilham will step in for the last 2 rounds for one of the Team Hard boys (probably Caine)
4. Andrew Jordan will again be outclassed by Turks and Collard
5. Cammish will do well but be a disappointment overall

1. Tom Ingram will lead the championship after the early rounds.

2. Tom Ingram will lose his championship lead.

3. Dam Cammish will become known as Contact Cammish, gaining a reputation like his fellow Dynamics drivers.

4. Mat Jackson will replace 1 of Team Hard's drivers.

5. Tom Ingram will win the championship after an after race penalty is handed out to another driver, meaning he gains 1 crucial position - enough to win the championship.

1. One of the commentators will refer to Andy Jordan's rallycross experience when he's held a big slide OR exclaim how unusual it is if he doesn't recover the slide, because of that rallycross experience...

2. Someone will have a spectacular off and roll the car at Donington.

3. Someone will do a 'Jeff Smith' again and get lucky with a pole in qualifying because the weather turns nasty.

4. All but one Honda gets a podium.

Overboost should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
1. Two of the 'returning' drivers will have disappointing seasons and its the last we'll see of them in the BTCC.

2. Mat Jackson will line up on the grid for at least one round.

3. There'll be 2 new winners this year.

4. We won't beat last year for number of winners in a season.

5. Jason Plato will part company with BMR (sacked by Warren, but not made public and usual PR spin covers the real reason he leaves) before the end of the season, after disappointing form.

1. Cammish will win exactly twice as many races as Neal.
2. The independent drivers' champion will be someone who hasn't won it before.
3. No drivers will be replaced during the year.
4. All three races at Silverstone will be wet.
5. Chilton will be ranked second among the Motorbase drivers in the final overall standings and will be beaten by Tordoff by as many points as he beats Cole.

Well. 2 done. 5 done. 4 part 1 has been incorrect.
