Croft

The countdown has begun. The trip North to visit the circuit with the most knowledgeable crowd on the calendar is beginning. King of Croft Colin Sutton is favourite for the wins.

This will be my first visit to Croft, leaving just Thruxton as the only other circuit still to visit.

Looking forward to it, and hopeful of some good battles across the grid.

Weather looks like it may be damp for Qualy, with dry race day. Teams have a new surface to learn too, so the field might be mixed up a bit.

Will the 3-series prove dominant, or can Dynamics find the sweet spot?
Will the Vauxhall drivers be in close competition with their former teams?
Will BMR's current cars outperform their former runners?
Will the new models on the grid outscore the older marques?

A lot of questions to be answered this weekend, and we are starting to get to the point in the season where title chances can be seen to be slipping away if results are not favourable.
Pressure will really start to heat up, even if the weather doesn't!

It's a delete as applicable entry, depending on who comes out on top!

I can see Ash doing very well. The Subaru really gets good drive out of many of the corners. I expect AJ to be on the phone to a trophy cabinet maker too, he really has the 3 series sussed.

I think Sutton will be strong, his car looked immense out of the hairpin last year. I think BMW will be strong, though I dont think it will be a walkover. Their car has a longer wheelbase this year and there are a lot of tight turns at Croft.

its a rear wheel drive circuit. always has been even in the years when rear wheel drive cars were not very strong. so will be a bmw and subaru walkover

Really looking forward to it. Fingers crossed for a dry race day, I'm taking a first timer with me this year and he's a BMW fan so I can see him leaving a happy lad. Agree with the statement above about AJ I think he's got the measure on that car already and looks very good. His confidence must be through the roof after coming back from that smash and bagging those results last time out.

Seb Vettel probably has the budget, unless he's blown it on dummies...
