That's how it sounded to me too. I thought he had announced he was retiring at the end of 2022? Maybe the racing bug has bitten again?

He does own 2 TBLs so maybe he will come back and use one of those licences for himself at Team HARD in 2023. Honestly, a potential Boardley, ATS, Thompson, and Hamilton/highest bidder lineup does not sound bad for Team HARD in 2023. If Boardley keeps and loans the other licence to Team HARD again in 2023, I guess we could see Parfitt stay and drive either a 5th CUPRA or something else.

Unless Motus One gets hold of a TBL or two, or works as a title sponsor/partner team to Team HARD, I'd be surprised to see Powell return in 2023.

Boardley likes a RWD and has 2 TBLs that might be of interest to MB Motorsport?

That is a possibility. I guess the next question would be whether he would drive the 2nd MB entry were such a loan/deal to materialise? MB would probably try and buy 2 BMWs (which would leave us with 7 of the things on the grid...) and Boardley went quite well in the old BMW 125i M Sport in 2020.

[Also, apologies that this is in the Brands Hatch thread as opposed to the general 2023 thread]

I'd be very surprised to see MB go it alone, it's a huge step to set up a whole new team when they could quite easily continue as they are.

I’ll be rooting for Hill seeing as Turks is practically out of it, however my guess is it will be a Sutton title.

I'm slightly surprised that Hill hasn't already wrapped it up, at times this year he's been blistering. Sutton's done his usual job of dragging a car much further up the grid than it should be, shocked at the difference in pace between him and Cammish.

I don't think there should be any argument that Ash Sutton is the best BTCC driver of the last decade. Anyone who believed his previous titles were simply down to RWD advantage have been proven wrong.

Agreed. I'm not his biggest fan but after the first round of this year who honestly saw him leading the championship going into the final round? It's not unusual for a team to have one standout performer but he consistently does it, every year regardless of the car or his team mates. That's no coincidence.

I don't think Cammish has done bad against him. If you take out the first thruxton round when he got wiped out on the first lap and then donington when his car was on fire in qualifying I think his results stack up pretty well against Sutton

He's had a lot of bad luck mixed in. I think he's gotten much closer through the second half of the season - Thruxton, and outqualified at Silverstone (albeit with more hybrid). Seems to drop away a bit in the races.

Hasn’t he waved Sutton by at least twice including a race win?
