S700UBO should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
is "something old, something new, something borrowed" not an old rhyme associated with Marriage as well?

Which could tie in more with Aron Taylor-Smith?

Alex could of sold the car, but either to a team that already has a TBL and no car, or a series that doesn't require TBL's. Selling the car to Team Parker Racing would of made the most sense.

Now the series entry deadline has passed TBL's cannot be moved, and the TBL is in the name of Team Parker Racing. So the days of TBL's and cars moving together are over for 2017.

I read it that Alex Martin has sold the car and TBL but because whoever has bought them is still having the car run by Parker it isn't breaking any TBL rules. TBLs can change hands, but the car along side the TBL needs to be run by the same team. So he can sell his car and TBL to anyone in the world, as long as Parker run the car, its allowed.

I can't work it out, are they charging for grandstand seats now seperately? It says general admission plus roving, does that mean you can walk about? I'm sure before it said general admission plus free unreserved seating...?
If you read the 'what's included' section and the FAQ's:

What’s included
    • FREE pit walk (time tbc)
    • Free paddock access all weekend
    • Post race track walk
    • On track podium presentation
    • Children aged 15 and under can attend for free
    • Family friendly entertainment
    • Roving grandstand seating
    • Free car parking
    • Silverstone Radio broadcasting on 87.7FM
    • Giant viewing screens
'Where does my ticket entitle me to go/what are the ticket options?
Entrance ticket price includes roving grandstand seat access, free of charge parking, open paddock and pit walk.'




Grandstand seats are not being sold separately, only reserved seating in Copse/Woodcote

It is, but it ends with 'something blue' not 22. The 22 must be included for a specific reason, or why change the rhyme?

Maybe 22 is the number of drivers Gilham has signed up for seats at Team Hard, just rotating them as funding runs out. With Tony he generally over promises and under delivers, if previous years are anything to go by.

Jake Hill is the "obvious" choice

Apart from rumblings that Jake was unlikely to be returning with them & was in negotiations with other teams.

Could be linked to the fact Rob Collard won't be at ASI as he isn't available, so the announcement comes before the livery unveil, no evidence just a thought that sprang to mind!

But it really looks like Hill will be at Motorbase; if so that's great news.

He's also 'liked' the following tweets in recent days/weeks:

Andrew Jordan - WSR/BMW Pirtek
Team HARD posts (numerous)
Matt Neal - Type R
AmD S3 - ready for Autosport Show
Tony Gilham's Epps & Hill Cobra Seats

It might mean he is connected to any/all of the above - or it could just mean that he likes the tweets?

If he is at Motorbase, it opens up the HARD/22 question again....
