In honesty a few times this year I have found the BTCC and support package a bit of a yawn-fest compared to recent times. So its good to see a bit of passion coming out for race 3

I wish they would give the "200 layout" a go. I don't think the Mikey Mouse infield bit really adds much.

intended or not WSR should buy JP some drinks with a no points score Sutton is pretty much out of the title picture specially since 2 power tracks are left on calender


Turks 236
Jordan 200
Butcher 177
Cook 166
Cammish 166
Sutton 160



that's a 76 deficit on the leader

Think we can all agree the title will go to Turks or Jordan, but the battle for 3rd will be really close. Who do we think will claim it? Butcher, Sutton or Cammish for me

Cammish has been ultra consistent so far, but he needs to start winning IMHO

Rory Butcher is my pick. Fast, intelligent, minds his own business and quietly gets on with the job in hand.

They used a mix; silver in some sessions, black in others. Not the first time they'be done that.

My thoughts were it’s because the three tyre compounds were used they Used all available rims. Usually they’ve only used the black rims with wets

No, no, no, that's far too logical.
Go back into a darkened room and thing about this properly. You can only come out once you've worked out a far more devious reason for them using different wheels which they are expecting us to think are just painted a different colour!

I prefer silver or white wheels. The black ones look ugly in my opinion.

Jordan's wheels are yellow.

























Perhaps they just wanted to use all 3 colours as well as all 3 compounds?

Dan is consistent and a big points scorer in R1 & R2 but not in R3 , he has generally been on same tyre as BMW and also been in same grid area so usually gets jumped off the grid and shuffled down, at Snetterton he had a brake issue in R3 which isnt ideal, R3 is the area to work on.

85% of Dan,s points are from R1 & R2.
Nearly 60% of Josh,s are from R3 and nearly 50% of Rory,s are from R3 so they are coming at the 3rd place battle from completely different angles.

Also Colin and Andrew are not big R3 points scorers with around 22% of total for Colin and 16% or so for Andrew so not massively better than Dan..

Still a long way to go

The black rim will absorb more light, becoming hotter than the silver or white rim, thus helping warm the hard tyres.

Or possibly some thieving pikey stole the tin foil that WSR wraps around its black rims. Thus WSR may have been running an under weight car. Tin foil is heavy stuff after all.
