My money is on Rob Austin, as it's his TBL. With a change of car from Focus to Alfa as well.


But then, I never was good with money

If we're going to criticise drivers for nearly hitting the stranded wheel - how about throwing some towards Oliphant and Neal for nearly hitting the same wheel?
Or being factual and recognising that some drivers took a wide line, some took a narrow line, and some were driving centrally?
Or does that not suit the narrative?

Mate, that wheel is easily hit. It's black. It's low down. The sun was low in the sky. Their are elevation changes. Your brain is programmed to look for cars, not wheels!

Go and watch NASCAR highlights of Kyle Busch at Vegas running into the back of a slower car. Even big objects can be difficult!

Right. Jackson Mat in for Sam Tordoff. Bushy ain't got the cash and AmD need him engineering Rory.

Nic H... anyone of several drivers, but I can see Rob Austin getting some race practice if he is serious about returning.

Just bang another drum will you please?
Have you seen how difficult young Nic finds walking around, never mind driving a Touring Car (which, let's face it are not known for their excellent visibility (even the mighty Jason Plato has been known to not see something simple like his grid position). I bet that you (or I) couldn't get close to the time that Nic Hamilton has done despite all of this. Instead of being negative, just look at what the guy has achieved.

Jackson will definitely be in one of the cars... He was pictured at AmD a while ago, maybe discussing next year and circumstances have brought him in a bit early?

Every driver slowed down. Every driver avoided the tyre.
Some drivers were on lines that avoided the tyre. Some drivers had to swerve at the last moment.

Yet for some reason, you have to point out one driver in particular?
If that doesn't sound like an agenda, then I'm not sure what is.

If the Alfa is ready, it might run.
Motorbase are not obliged to field a car though, because it's only a loan.

Absolutely. I'm pretty sure he'd leave me for dead if I had a race with him. Considering what life has thrown at him the boy has done good. Damn good.

Is he disabled and thought he'd never walk? No.

Stop being a cock. Stats don't tell the full story of anything, you keyboard warrior. Once you get outside and have a taste of the real world and understand what it's like to know a disabled person, maybe you'll change your opinion.
