So if the Merc is for sale with a TBL what are the Moffats doing?

Leaving BTCC altogether?
Gettting backing from Infiniti and the guest TBLS from Toca.

Or something else

Infiniti are withdrawing from the UK and Western Europe market in 2020, so no backing from them..

Ooh... that makes sense. Silly season has begun then!

BMR are the only 2 car team I can see leaving? (Though not convinced the Infinitis are going to be much higher up the grid than the Subarus...)

If thatís the case then it opens more questions.

What team is selling up. Or my own thoughts are which teams could down size?

Team Hard. Or maybe AMD want to operate just two cars.

So I guess Iíll be first to say that the two Infinitiís will be piloted by Moffat and Sutton in 2020..

Just to add fuel to fire... Lexus UK tweeting about the old IS200s in the BTCC.

I know they're a divison of Toyota so definitely not coming back as a manufacturer, and they're tweeting about the brand's history, but interesting none the less to see the official account tweet about the series.

Yes.

And one of their drivers tested Aidans Infiniti.

Pretty much a done deal. Aidan IS racing in BTCC next year for definite.

Really can't see Ash in an Infiniti though. He's got his eye on TCR, WTCR, etc, and I don't think he's the kind of person to spend a season pottling about in an undeveloped car.

But I'll probably be wrong as usual

Dynamics won't be featuring GS and Audis next year - utter nonsense I'd say (cue a need to eat humble pie come media day!) GS is earning good $, way more than he can earn in BTCC. Pretty sure he'll jack in WTCR at some point - but very much doubt as soon as next year!

The current Audi A3 is getting old, a new one is due relatively soon (2021 in UK I believe). So it might be possible, especially with the hybrid system to use BTCC as a marketing tool for the next gen hybrid and fully electric Audi A3. VAG overall and VW and Audi brands in particular are aiming at an electric future in a big way.

But who says A3 necessarily? WSR have done a fantastic job with the A4 sized 3 series BMW...

That's what I would have said. Warren has been trying to offload the team and maybe now with 2 ready built cars Bob is in the position to do a deal. Ash in the Infiniti isn't as daft as it sounds, obviously he's fairly handy in RWD and maybe he's looking to have more input in developing the car from a relatively blank canvas. I don't think the recent test was just for the hell of it either, why would he be openly helping out a rival?

I guess we'll see. You're absolutely right in that Sheds had been bloody awful in the TCR car. Whereas Ash Sutton turned up, drove and seemed at home pretty much immediately. Sutton really is very talented and deserves far better than the donkey he's saddled with currently.
