Yeah, seems Neate’s final weekend ain’t going well. At least his son got a podium in F4.

Fair enough. I don't read press releases as I'm not really that interested but I have heard on TV coverage and other forums that 2022 was the original intention.

It was just the original post was worded in a way that implied the sole reason they were not joining next year was because of hybrid. Obviously my misunderstanding.

Speedworks Toyota or Excelr8 Hyundai ? He's already driven every other FWD car on the grid*

* ok, he hasn't driven the Hard Cupra either but even Chilton is not that desperate.

Motorbase is in different hands now though from when he last drove for them. Plus loosing Neate is a big cheque to replace, something the Chilton’s would have a problem with.

Thought the Bennetts / Turkington post race 3 interview was interesting. It seemed to confirm the intention was for Turkington to be back and Bennetts said they hoped to announce their intentions within a few weeks

And I think that Ash Sutton, in his interview at the end, said that he thought that he would know what he was doing next year at around Christmas time.

Peter Osborne never needed Neate or his cheques this year, but Neate had a contract to honour or pay up to be released from.

It would be good to see someone quicker than Smiley in the 2nd Hyundai - someone that can help push TIngram that extra 1/10th forward to finally win a championship.

For what purpose - do you think someone like Jordan would help Turkington take a title?

Personally - I think someone like Jordan alongside Turkington would potentially harm his chances, and take points away from him.

Well if Bert Taylor sorts out his new team, then Smiley will go there.

Andy Rouse as well, 1983-85 (unless this is you saying Soper deserved the 1983 championship). I think Sutton has to be the favourite for next year, wherever he goes, seeing as BMR were able to turn the Infiniti into a title winner immediately. But assuming they both stay at their respective teams, I think Tom Ingram and Colin Turkington will be more of a threat to Sutton in 2022, while I also think Shedden will be back in the title battle, but maybe a bit further off.

You never know, Goff scored 90 points to Chiltons 64 so it could be a good move for Tom...
