I wonder if PMR have got special permission to do this? Usual TBL rules say only 1 driver change per year. Unless they are 'utilising' both TBLs therefore could have 4 drivers in total?

They said back at the beginning of July that they would be running multiple drivers in the car. Given the unusual circumstances of the year it wouldn't be in TOCA's interest to put blocks in their way and I expect they had cleared it all with them before making the July announcement anyway.

It's not quite the same though. PMR are adapting their approach for this season due to COVID19 circumstances, rather than other teams who have had to change drivers for financial reasons.

BTCC Chief Executive Alan Gow said: “Power Maxed Racing have come a long way from their first foray in 2015, and they’ll be missed on the grid this year. We will see their car throughout this season with some guest drivers that I’m sure will delight our fans, and from the commitments Adam [Weaver] has made, I’ve no doubt they’ll be back in the thick of it come ’21. These are trying times for everyone, but we will all weather the storm by supporting each other as best we can.”

As we've said previously, expect all the usual TBL rules to go out of the window this year. They were all subject to waivers from the Championship Administrator (Gow) anyhow.

These are exceptional times, and I'm sure Gow is more than aware that exceptional measures are needed. If they stuck rigidly to the rules this year then there's a chance there may not be series at all next year.

So presumably PSA pulling what little involvement Vauxhall may have had...

Was in TCT I think. Pleased to see Bushell back, very few people more deserving of a BTCC drive after the year he's had.

And of course, we have the comments for Jade Edwards to have a go...

I believe it's not a manufacturer entry only as it's a low key running occasionally for suitably budgeted drivers.

Expect manufacturer entry status for next year.

PSA is very keen to promote the Britishness of Vauxhall. An entry in a British championship is a relatively inexpensive way of doing so.

Not sure.

Rule reads as : "Cars registered for the Championship after February 28th, 2020, and/or those cars that miss one or more Championship Meetings may carry a Late Entry Ballast of up to 60kgs at the first Championship Meeting they compete in/return to, 42kg in the subsequent Championship Meeting and 30kg in the third Championship Meeting they compete in, at the sole discretion of the Administrator. The success ballast weight handicap as outlined above is applicable to these cars up to a maximum of 60kgs inclusive of the Late Entry Ballast."

Is it car that was previously registered for another driver in which case it's a different rule. Could go 60kg or 45kg.

Or - because Gow has already confirmed that their car will be running as a guest entry - they will not be carrying any ballast, will not be eligible for points in the championship and will not have their placing considered for determination of ballast carried by others.

I guess the full details of the entry will become clear when the car lines up for Qualy...

That could get messy quickly. On that guest basis, Bushell gets to run with zero ballast at all times. He's not scoring any points so gets no ballast for a race result that doesn't count.

AG announced weeks ago, that the allowable number of driver changes per car would be increased this year.

so if say Bushell wins as guest entry will not score any points does the 2nd place driver gets full points ?? does it mean the 2nd place driver gets also point for leading a lap even if he didn't ? what about the point for fastest lap if Bushell does it ?
