Season Finale! Brands Hatch GP, 7/8 October, Rds. 28/29/30

Its season finale time! Will Sutton clinch the title in Race 1, Race 2, or Race 3? Can Ingram pull off the ultimate comeback?

Timetable

BARC Noticeboard

ITV Sport Livestream [updated link will be shared when available]

Championship as we enter Brands Hatch GP
Sutton - 398
Ingram - 353

The Jack Sears Trophy is relatively close
Watson - 410
Doble - 392
Osborne - 378
Patterson - 365
Pearson - 359

In the Supports:
Porsche Carrera Cup GB - Pro Champion = Adam Smalley; Am Champion = Justin Sherwood; Pro-Am is a battle between Max Bird (106) and Ross Wylie (88), Bird is highly likely to claim the title in Race 1 as there's only 24 points up for grabs this weekend.

Porsche Sprint Challenge GB - Pro Class is between Joe Warhurst (100), Steve Roberts (93), Max Coates (88), Matthew Armstrong (80) [34 points available]. Am Class is between Marc Warren (143) and Callum Davis (112), Warren should wrap up the title in R1.

MINI Challenge JCW - Dan Zelos (759) vs Will Orton (658). Zelos is the favourite, but with the very generous points system (50 for a win, 6 for pole, 6 for fastest lap) it is still possible for Orton to win the championship.

British F4 - this is ultra-close. Louis Sharp (331) vs William Macintyre (330), this one should go right to the wire.

No mention of why, whether Butel has split with the team or something’s just come up.

Either way, glad to see Gornall back, definitely one of many that should’ve had a better chance in the BTCC.

Rinse and repeat I would think.
Sounds like a legacy of the extra money the drivers were supposedly asked for earlier this year not being paid.
Was it concussion when Butel missed the Brands finale a few years back?

Indeed. Hadn't noticed that HARD entered Thompson under a different team name when he came back.

Hamilton left because he was asked to find significantly more money for the remainder of the reason and wouldn't/couldn't.

He was asked that question at Silverstone, and said he would be back next season. I wonder if big brother is helping out?

Just a shame he decided to make that decision 2 minutes before FP1, having driven all the way up to Croft.

No. Whilst some of his sponsors have (perhaps) been enticed by the Hamilton family name, Nicolas does an incredible amount of work himself to get the sponsorship to go racing.

Provisional Entry List

BTCC
Confirmation of Gornall as #180 at Go-Fix with Autoaid Breakdown

MINI Challenge JCW - 19 entries
Return of Cordell. Kerridge absent on provisional entry list.

Porsche Carrera Cup GB - 23 entries
Return of Richardson Racing with de Haan and Stanley. Edgerton replaced by Will Martin at Toro Verde.

Porsche Sprint Challenge GB - 18 entries
Same entries as at Silverstone. Trice appears on the entry list but given his bruising, and the fact his car was very badly damaged, I'd be surprised if he races.

British F4 - 19 entries
Largely the same field as last time we saw them at Donington - Peebles, Mills, and Rodella absent

Depends when he was asked to come up with more money I suppose or it could have been someone who promised more sponsorship to cover it pulled out last minute. Plenty of reasons other than Nic making the decision that late on his own.
