Entry list as at 18/08/20, note that this doesn't include Bushell.

Also worth noting that Matt Neal is running as #700 this weekend. The weekend will be his 700th BTCC start (in race 2?)

As I understand it, they'll be independent this year simply because of their 'guest entry' but it seems the whole package (two cars, Plato, manufactirer status) is back next year. Well, at least that's the plan.

Agree with you on that about BTC. Wonder what Chilton is thinking seeing the team he left and their new car being so competitive

They have a sponsorship agent looking for 2021 sponsors for them, which JP retweeted recently.

That's probably standard for all teams/drivers to be continuously on the look out for new sponsorship deals.

PMR did state the following in their latest release: 'With Jason Plato confirmed for the 2021 season, as well as all existing team partners, '

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.
Bushell is using the entry that was previously registered for Mat Jackson.

I seem to remember Rob Huff having to have the latecomer ballast when he briefly stood in for Sonic a few years ago

I just saw 3 BTC Racing transporters on the M42 near Birmingham, I have therefore actually seen some kind of BTCC racing this year?!

Last time I saw race transporters was when I was near Dover and I saw Honda / BAR, Williams and I think McLaren all stacked up in a queue to cross the channel.

Maybe because he saw what happened to Mat Jackson in 2018

I saw some pre-lockdown testing at Brands Hatch and this week I got to see a shakedown.

The only time I recall seeing racing transporters during a weekend of racing was on the M1 back on 2004, as they were at the Super Weekend at Donny
