But an additional entry for the rest of the season trumps a driver return for one weekend, especially when itís Mr Ego himself making a cameo 🤣 Take your point though 👍🏻

I try to pay attention, but somewhere in the hazy shadows of my memory of the last few years I seem to have missed a thing, so: why does everyone seem to be so negative towards Rob Austin? As I recall he used to be reasonably popular, at least I'm sure his win at Rockingham(?) in the Audi was pretty well celebrated. What happened?

I personally have nothing against Rob at all having never really met him, its just that whenever a seat is available his name is always the first one to come up as someone who automatically deserves to be 'given' it.

He upset a lot of the RAR fan club when he went to HMS, plus heís upset a number in the paddock sponsor poaching over the years. His Ďnever his faultí attitude has worn thin over time with other drivers too. The whole reverse grid draw when he cheated didnít win him any fans either.

Like you say, back at Rockingham his win was quite popular all round. Sometimes when people show their true colours opinions change.

He looked in the bowl, grabbed the ball with his number (to promote himself to pole), and then pretended to swirl them all around.

The irony was that when they did the redraw he still got pole. It's why they ditched drivers doing the draw and now it's back to drivers because of covid they're using a bag.

I've met him twice at charity events and he's a nice enough guy but both times he spent most of the time telling me about the number of times he had driven a race car with a major hangover. Maybe the people he usually hangs around with find that sort of thing impressive but I don't.

Forgot about all the RAROC stuff, although a lot of them still seem quite happy to have paid out to be shareholders of something that doesn't exist, in return for an Exocet fleece.

I must admit, all that "Owners Club" stuff seemed quite odd.

Although it's a shame Bushell won't get one more run out,, it's good to see Austin back. Whatever you may think of him as a person, he's a very experienced driver and a race winner with both RWD and FWD

With BTCC being bumped to ITV2 this weekend due to ITV4 showing World Series of Darts final, I see an opportunity for a bit of cross-channel promotion.

Just need to get Jim Bowen and Tony Green out of retirement... "INNNN ONE"
