Personally, I’d prefer it if a totally separate session sorted the grid for races 1 and 2. Race 3 could still be a reverse grid of race 2 finishing order, I think currently if you have a bad result in race 1, it can kill your weekend, so having a better grid position for race 2 would be less punishing if you fail to finish race 1.

I'm sure the Top Ten Showdown will be a big spectacle for the thousands of eager spectators stood trackside.

It's an interesting experiment. Of course Snetterton was originally supposed to have it's traditional place in the year after the summer break, so this format was less likely to influence the title. Now it could be really critical in the championship, but at the same time it might not make too much of a difference. It's right though they trial this experiment as one off rather than just introduce it full blown

Shall I put my tinfoil hat on and suggest that qualifying could be 'used' as a way to even-up the championship positions?

I'd like to see the qualifying format that was used in the late Formula Superleague. That made for interesting watching.

And there’s nice DTM highlights on ITV4 just before the BTCC coverage, so enough to satisfy my appetite

Bobby Thompson out of Snett on medical grounds. Ethan Hammerton will fill in at Snetterton

Medical grounds? Thought he was allegedly all OK? Hopefully he will make a full recovery.

The cynic in me does wonder if medical grounds translates as fatally wounded wallet.

No, it was mentioned earlier he needed a medical test beforehand. IDK where you got the idea he had already had it. Maybe he did, but the results hadn't come through. Anyway it's been revealed he's had concussion, so that's that

So with Hammerton coming in it means we have four driver changes for the weekend, let's see how each get on, although losing Bobby is a blow after all he's done for TPC, let's hope he's back for Brands

I think there are extra protocols in place these days. Remember Andy Jordans problems at Snetterton in 2014 and how long Rob Collard was out for. Toca have done a lot of research.

Yes indeed Gents. Think I managed to mix Bobby T in my head with a different driver in a different series on a different continent...

Concussion can be very nasty, hard to diagnose and determine how long and how badly its effects will be felt. See Dario Franchitti for further details.

So HAMMER-ton is back, had to put it that way as already, I'm getting him mixed up with Lewis' brother. Dread to think what the commentators will have to go through. It's like the Brundle and Blundell of the BTCC even if Ethan isn't returning to Team HARD.

I doubt it will be much of a problem. Neither is likely to get much airtime.

Unless they have a coming together or start next to each other. Just my imagination running wild really but anything's possible in the BTCC.
