Caterham run 3 or 4 difference series for different specs of cars which tend to run as part of the same package. There wouldn't be space for all of them to run at a TOCA meeting and I doubt they would want to split them up

pimmy should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Caterham's top class has raced separately on occasion in the past, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for them to make a guest appearance.

I imagine the BTCC support bill gives more exposure than any other the others? Would make sense for Caterham to get a foot in if they could.

Caterham supported the BTCC at Thruxton in about 2004.

Possibly (probably?) the higher powered of the series to move over to gain some brand exposure to casual motorsports fans (those who have heard of Plato and likely still think he has a Sooooooooobaru) rather than the more mainstay fans who could probably write detailed specs of the machines they're watching on track.

Not so sure about that. A lot of the regular fans seem to have trouble setting their Sky to record the races let alone knowing the specs of the cars.

This today is likely a one-off.

Because it is unlikely that a driver would move from a full-time LMGTE Pro drive in the WEC to a national series.

Along with driving for Motorbase in 2012 in his development as a GT driver.

Let's hope we get a good quality lineup next year, I think teams should look outside the current support classes for some fresh talent in the series
