Plenty of people in the various FB groups still thinking that BMR are bringing new cars in next year 😂 fuelled by the post from the guy who sells everyone's old bumpers, looks like he's bought literally every body panel they had left

Regarding seats already in place it does seem like a lot of the big names are confirmed but I'm interested in where the Laser and HMS TBLs end up. Plus what happens with Simpson if he really is pulling out. Apparently Boardley will definitely be on the grid and definitely with a different team...

dynamics trucks go back to the integra days, pretty sure one of them was owned by rob collard when he ran the astra, some of the tractor units in the paddock are well over 10 years old, alan gow's bus/toca centre is approaching 20... the teams that have been constant for 10 plus years rarely change rigs as they dont do the mileage compared to trucks in commercial use. a truck owned by say stobart will do more miles in 2 weeks than a btcc/race rig does in a year

That's a new way to take money from the punters. Pay for your tickets and get openly abused (as opposed to pleasantly fleeced)!

Dynamics have new trucks now, as do WSR.

Is it still connected to the rumour of him being in Simpson's Civic?

Exceeding track limits I suspect. Best ensure the sponsorship covers enough cash to bribe the officials then

Ever noticed the similarities between Dick Dastardly and Graham Hill?

Despite the wording on her website, don't be surprised if 2020 is another year in Clios
