btccbloke should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Im sure Crees is a nice guy and probably a good peddler, but i cant help feel underwhelmed, even by the well known standards of a Tony G #gamechanger announcement.


Still, now we have a fair idea who will be at the back and the dross from Hard and AMD is almost out of the way, im looking forward to some proper news from some of the bigger teams

Matt Neal posted a picture on Facebook today of one of the Honda's prepped and ready to go for a day out. He referred to the car as Dan's car, why do that if Cammish isn't returning for another season with the team?

I heard that after his performance at the Brands finale he secured his drive for next year with them.

How can the ‘dross from AmD’ be almost out of the way when there has been no announcement of who will drive the cars? Who is to say they won’t be drivers capable of fighting consistently inside the top ten?

Precisely. Shaun now has two race winning cars, hopefully he will bag a good driver or two: he hasn't spent a packet on those cars to make the numbers up.

If he can get Goff or AWE or Hill or Butcher on board then I think a race win is a real possibility. I'm sure there'll be some shaking with Shaun soon enough.

Indeed, if Shaun gets the drivers on the top of his list, then wins will definitely be on the cards.

My point is should that alone qualify me to race in BTCC or WTCR? Currently the answer is it would as long as a have a bucket load of money as well.
And so the annual argument around money over talent begins. This is the way it has always been in motorsport and remains so, at all levels.

Give the lad a break; the poor soul hasn't turned a wheel in anger yet. He might turn out to be good!

I had respect for AMD until last seasons revolving door, but even then, they are never going to win anything, even with the Civics they have now obtained imho.

Tho if im wrong ill admit it here first

jsmee has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Ex Clio racer and now Mini Challenge racer Rob Smith is announcing plans tomorrow at 8am

Could be a potential for Excelr8?

I’m not sure why the Civics would suddenly be rubbish with another team?

They’re proven race winners and a lot of people would still class them as a championship contender with the right driver.

If Shaun gives Jack Goff a seat, he can bring a couple of years of data, not to mention the fact that there’s 30+ Eurotech staff including both of the number one mechanics looking for work.

With the right combination of car, driver and mechanics, they’ll be a front runner again this year.

Am I the only one who remembers how much speculation that Mat Jackson would race for AMD this tear when he 'lost' the Ford drive? I wonder if he was prevented from racing in the BTCC due to contractural reasons this year, but would be available next year?
