A Team RAC front row, first time that has been achieved I think this year.

The top 14 cars have qualified basically within 1 second of each other.

Plato will have a tough job in race one coming from 8th. Geo should have the upper hand in the first two races.

Well, Turkington took the win on the road but was excluded for running underweight!

So, it's another win for Flash Gordon. As opposed to his teammate who destroyed his and Jason Plato's race with an ambitious move at turn one.

Revenge for last year's antic's perhaps ?

Thats a pity about Turkington. Shedden's rapidly looking the better driver at Team Dynamics, dare I say...

Re: Race 2 Startline accident.

When oh when will the organisers of Motorsport in this country FINALLY realise that it is not safe to allow cars to "race-back" to the Startline when a safety car is being deployed????

Let's just hope that no one was injured in this needless additional accident.

Absolutely stupid - and very dangerous

It seems nobody learned from the FFord race at Brands the other week.

The TV didn't cover it very well, but it appeared to me Richard Marsh was caught napping by all the other cars slowing or dodging the medical car.

Completely unprofessional to cars still running at racing speed with so much of the track blocked. For startline accidents the yellow flag zone should start much earlier.

Some pretty good racing overall, nice to see The OC getting his first win, especially after Colin's race 1 misfortune. Great stuff from Eoin Murray as well - when the car works he's a real threat.

Again we see safety compromised, for the sake of the TV schedule...IMHO

Did anyone else think Matt Neal was plain wreckless diving down the inside of Giovanardi, when Gio had to make that huge save. I just thought "what are you doing Matt?" If someone had done that to him the past 2 years when he was in a title battle he would have gone mad. Im not a fan of either Plato or Neal, i think they are as bad as each other.

Anyway if i remember rightly, Gio outscored plato in each race, so thats good for the title. I was loving each race, but race 3 with plato and gio was awesome. well done onslow-cole. I can see a BMW challenging for the title next season

Can't really blame Marsh.

I agree with everyone who thinks it might be a good idea to slow the cars before they encounter an accident scene, especially when there are officials and marshals on the track. Its a no brainer.
