They should've spelt his name right at least!

Those extra two points for Ingram may be very valuable at the end of the season.

so you push someone out of race no real penalty, you just do a more robust move like any real touring car should do you get penalty, what kind of s"""t is this ??

They don't tend to punish people if the other car DNFs or is too far back to redress the result. Whereas Supercars just give a straight 15 second penalty for contact, regardless of where the victim has ended up. I prefer method 2, but that would just confuse the casual fan.

On a separate topic, another Porsche roll? These cars seem susceptible to that sort of thing. There was one for Ross Wylie at Knockhill in free practice and one in Australia the other week too.

No it wasn't. The Safety Car was brought out due to the presence of a car in a potentially dangerous position. The recovery vehicle was then sent out to attempt to move it to a safe position, but in the end they covered the danger by the use of a yellow (slow down and be prepared to stop) flag.

I take it you've never seen a live snatch covered by waved yellow flags then?

Anyhow, I went I boiled, I had a good time rather than being on here bickering and point scoring

He overtook by breaking track limits. It was a poor camera angle but there's no way he had all four wheels on the track. Slam dunk position change for me.

A 1 second penalty is more lenient than a reprimand and 2 penalty points in a lot of ways.

Well had to watch the races on catch up but TBH the first two races were not that great but third much m ore exciting and normal BTCC quality. Not sure i agree with the collard penalty but either way he had a good race and cdertainly a chip off the old block. great to see jason on the podium again but i think it may be his last.

I felt for Tom Chilton this weekend.

After some real improvements lately he’s looked much more back to the driver he was not so long ago.

But a disaster on lap 1 of race 1 totally ruined his weekend.

What exactly happened to put in him out for the whole day? I thought in the replay of the R1 start there was fluid pouring out of his car, noticeable on the camera of the car we were 'riding on'.
