Millvi should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I was at Silverstone both days this weekend and it all seemed as busy as ever.

Won VIP parking with Halfords that helped me get closer to the track and every time I’ve entered I’ve won. Worth doing for Brands Hatch if they run the competition for there.

I did a dash for the car with a few laps to go and listened to the race 3 conclusion on the Silverstone radio channel. Got me off and away before the mass departure.

I’m surprised that more car dealers don’t attend with some stock. The Toyota Supra and Yaris GR models there were about all there was…

Yes. Everyone who races an NGTC spec car knows what comes with it. There are people racing who wouldn't be on the grid if they had to fork out for more expensive components if the weaknesses weren't built in to the spec.

Bobby Thompson & Aron Taylor-Smith are my drivers of the day for getting those **** heaps into the top 10.
I thought both the Minis and Porsches on Sunday produced good racing. Yes, both races involved only two drivers contesting the win, but they put on a great show, I thought. The Minis get criticised for being a red flag magnet series, but those two raced really hard and fair with each other

Thought this was the day that proved Jake Hill would make a worthy champion.

He was immense all day. Far quicker than Colin Turkington and Stephen Jelley, whilst pulling off some great moves. Managing that safety car restart from the lead was superb too.

He has improved considerably over the course of this season. Always quick, but his ability in and amongst traffic has really improved.

Minis were great. Battle for 3rd was about 8 cars together for the whole race. Keeping saying, it but it's so frustrating that they had two other races we saw nothing of.

I think what rubs some people the wrong way with Hill is that he seems unable give an interview without throwing some form of dig at other drivers.
Almost every time I have heard him in front of the mic this year, he seems to have had a chip on his shoulder about someone else on the grid - and usually it has been about another talented driver.

Could you give any example? I mean, I don't question that but probably haven't really paid attention to that.
I mean, Hill is a very talented driver and I tend to support young racers who are there because of their talent and not money only but has to be said there's some not particularly nice vibe around him.

Instead of just reeling off a list of sponsors, at least get them in as puns or their slogans like Rob Collard's "we really kicked up a gear".

Tom Ingram seems unable to give an interview without behaving like a kids TV presenter or overly enthusiastic primary school teacher. Don't even get me started on "pointsy"...

An example. After R3 at Silverstone following a P2, P1 and P4:
"It was dirty. Everyone is loading each other up and hitting everyone and hitting everyone. [...] the problem is certain people in the mix [...] they think they can bully people [in the championship hunt] they are messing with the wrong person. [...] they was just constantly getting into me"

The other championship contenders were focusing on the positives, what they can control and looking forward to Brands.
