porsche962fan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
small off-topic


why do BTCC drivers always say "WE" instead of "I" "We did get a good results,// we passed on the inside// we got a good start etc"

do they have a secret co-driver in the car?

Something to do with the fact that a driver is backed up by the team boss, mechanics, engineers, grid girls , sponsors, and probably a whole host of other people.

Neither UK nor US are actual pickups. Just silhouette bodies on a space frame chassis.

Interesting to hear on TTW that BKR probably won't be running the VW CC next year. Also Swindon are keen for someone to run the new engine in an updated CC, so could we see someone else take the CC's off BKR's hands and stick on the RML kit with a new Swindon lump in? Think it could be quite a competitive package still. However BKR must have something very interesting lined up or in the pipeline to be moving away from the CC!

Do we know that BMR are going to run the Levorg next year or another Subaru model? In which case BKR to run a couple of Levorg's?

be interesting to see what BKR do get up to in the off season

im not sure what subaru would replace the Levorg with and seems a bit of a waste to ditch them after a year but thats what TD with the Civic Tourer and Volvo say maybe true!

Yeah, but they seem to have found the car's potential unlike the Honda

The WRX STi would be the perfect car choice for Subaru.

I cant help but feel that that is far closer to what Plato had in mind when he supposedly came up with the Subaru idea 4 years ago. Considering the Levorg presumably wasnt even in the pipeline then, it has to have been.

I said it toward the start of the season, but as the year has gone i have become more confident.... imo they are using the Levorg as a test-bed this year, and will switch all relevant running gear and data over to something more... conventional... from the Subaru stable for 2017.

The BKR info from TTT just seems to slot into that quite nicely now.

Subaru UK said no to that idea. I know it seems like the perfect racing choice, but the package has to make monetary sense too. The WRX STI is imported in tiny numbers these days, far from the halcyon days.
