Don't think so. Brands GP has never been a RWD track has it? I would put my money on Cammish and Cook for this week

No, Brands GP has never really favoured the RWD cars. Not to say they won’t be competitive, just no big advantage from them

You were saying the same about the BMWs last season after Donington, but the championship went right down to the wire.....

I wonder if Andrew Jordan will knock off some cobwebs and enter his Miglia? That race should be the highlight of the supports. They've got 56 entered! Presumably they aren't all on track together?

Why, has he had enough? Budget run out? What have you heard? Will he compete in something else instead? Surely this should have been posted in the rumours thread.

Yes - BMW had adjustments as a result of normal TOCA process. The same will happen again if any one car/driver becomes too dominant.

For now, why not just enjoy the racing and Sutton's talent on show?

Here's why I feel making such bold decisions against such little evidence is a futile game. Only a matter of weeks ago, you were saying:

I thought all rwd cars recieved the same adjustments for the 2and half of last season.
I am intrigued to know what are the elements of the scooby chassis that they have managed to engineer into the Infiniti.

After Croft, the BMW engine (including the one in Jelley's 125i) had the boost reduced by 0.02 bar.
Before Snetterton, all engines except the BMW had their boost increased by 0.02 bar.

So from R1 to R16, the BMW's engine was 0.04 bar lower compared to the rest of the grid.

From Snetterton onward, when the Infiniti was entered, an adjustment was also made to the CoG of the existing RWD cars. The ride height was increased by 6mm, or take 10.5kg ballast. BMW went for the ride height adjustment, Subaru opted for partial ballast, partial ride height.

Potentially, yes. One can start 46 saloons on the GP circuit, all of whom - obviously - need to practice. However, in practice, the maximum number of permitted cars increases by 20% in order to allow reserves the chance to qualify. As such, all entered cars could be on track during qualifying.

Cheers. I remembered the weight/ ride height adjustments made from Snetterton but forgot about the previous boost adjustments.

Here's hoping Jake has a fit and healthy engine. The lad and the FK2 have always looked good at Brands.

Cookie I can see running well, ditto the Dynamics duo.

I reckon the BMWs will be solid rather than spectacular. And I can see Ash Sutton pushing too hard as I don't think the car and track will be as well suited as Donny - but what do I know?
