I expect Jelley to team up with WSR as he did last year. Not sure if Boardley will join them as well.

Good luck to Geddie this weekend, Bushell did a decent job with the car at Croft, so we’ll see what Glynn will do

Turkington (still) being pals with Jordan seems if you look at twitter as Turks also drives in historic racing

Matt Neal now openly says what we've all been thinking of for quite some time - a possibility to retire after this season. However, it's rather 50:50 now.
What made me curious, reading the story on Motorsport.com was this part:

"It is understood that Neal’s deliberations stem from the commercial issues facing Honda, for which Neal’s family-owned Team Dynamics squad runs the official team in the BTCC, in the current economic climate."

I wonder what's behind it really.

No Honda money next year so team will need someone who can pay the bills. Probably can't justify spending money from the wheels business on his BTCC exploits so step up to team boss and bring in a suitable replacement with money. (A Shedden, Butcher or Cook for example, not a Neate or Pinkney).

Yes - 4 years ago to an American investment firm.

In a recent interview, Matt Neal has also indicated that they do not have the financial clout for Henry to drive in the BTCC, unless he attracts other backing.

Shedden has shown himself to be very capable, Butcher is a top driver and Cook is a very experienced driver, but not sure if they would go to Dynamics. We don't need to mention Neate, he can be alright at times, but I would be surprised if he is back next season. Let's not go back to drivers from the past either

Cookie sprouted a money tree to pay for the BTC seat, so maybe he can harvest next years crop in return for a Dynamics seat. Not sure how much Honda money TD get, suspect it's way way less than Halfords and Yuasa contribute.

Neate's finances are apparently good, I can see Bartie wanting to embrace his man. He has had some bad meetings but the majority he hasn't been a bad lad. If his head is in a good place he's alreet.

they should have held Brands this weekend

if it comes this way , nobody really can't deny Turk being a worthy and legitimate champion, 8 rounds were held, he did lead the points table in most of them, most wins this season
