Unless Cammish is within 20pts.

Should be interesting, it's the first time in a couple years we've had more than 2 drivers to focus on!

Cammish has really established himself as the lead driver in the team. He's really come on leaps and bounds this season and he has been rewarded by a shot at the title. Whatever happens he can hold his head up proud for the effort he has put in

To be honest, I think Colin is quite safe until WSR is supported by BMW. Probably the team's not fully funded by BMW (or BMW UK) but they must give some ££ to the team. So as Turks is de facto a team leader, I think he's quite certain to retain his seat.

I mean I think he’ll call it a day, not the team. One more title and he equals Rouse’s record, I’m just not sure he’ll go for another.

And he hasn't moved to the mainland to retire.

why not ?



wouldn't he want 5 titles to be greatest BTCC driver of all time ?


people forget he is the indy champion of 2007-2008 so he sort of already has 5 titles

If Indy titles count towards being the greatest of all time, then I think Matt Neal might have something to say about that distinction.

Matt Neal with low ballast to qualify well and then 'play the team game'? Yeh, go on then.

The thing is, realistically what could TOCA or the stewards do if Neal were to torpedo Turkington or Jordan out of the race? The worst that would happen is that Neal would get points or a grid penalty. Nothing would happen to Dynamics or Cammish.

They could apply Regulation 4.2.4:

'Where in the opinion of the BTCC Clerk any competitor(s), team(s) and/or manufacturer(s)/constructor(s) has gained an unfair advantage (whether inadvertently or not) from a breach of the Regulations either by its own actions or those of another competitor the BTCC Clerk may after giving the parties a right to be heard impose any one or more of the following penalties upon such competitor(s) and/or team(s) and/or manufacturer(s)/constructor(s) in order to remove or otherwise compensate for such advantage:-
4.2.4.a. reprimand
4.2.4.b. fine: Future participation in the Championship shall not be permitted until this fine is paid
4.2.4.c. time penalty
4.2.4.d. exclusion from the event or any part thereof
4.2.4.e. one or more of the above penalties may be imposed as appropriate'
