luckn002 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
BTCC 2018 - Rounds 1, 2, 3 - Brands Hatch Indy

Finally, the 2018 season has begun!

So far the test sessions have been topped by Rob Austin, the new Dynamic's Hondas and joshCook, but most importantly the field still looks to be incredibly close - think it was about 25 cars within a second at Thursday's test day here.

Last year Jeff Smith was on pole, with race wins for Ingram and Jordan.

Any predictions?

The Hondas of Goff, Neal & Cammish at the front of the grid for round 1. Despite Dynamics being behind schedule with the build that car looked on the money... as they learn more about it it can only get better!

Tempted to punt a few quid on Cammish for championship...

I think motorbase will be right there as well, chilton p2 at media day and tordoff p4 and cole was quick at brands yesterday, I think it will be another close season and will come down to the last race yet again

So what’s up with the Subaru’s then? Have they been thrown yet another late spanner by TOCA?

They're probably just lacking development and their new engine tuner is learning the unit.

The team seem to be busy complaining to facebook group admins about posts discussing their finances at the moment, as opposed to putting their efforts into the car.

On a brighter note I think the Alfa could more than likely grab a podium on its racing debut.

Good to see Motorbase up there as well after a disappointing 2017.

Do we know why it didn't test at Brands. It will be the only car going into the weekend with no track data.

Plus they're traditionally rubbish at Brands Indy and Donington.

The Alfa was tested at Brands maybe 2 weeks ago, so they have data.

Tho is seems odd to not want track data for the wet, after all this is Britain, and they will have paid for the session

One prediction already true then: BMR moaning. Tony Gilham may have got into some stuck but I do not remember him moaning: he just stepped back, knuckled down and worked hard to get himself back up. BMR could do worse than follow his example.

Then again, why risk your brand new car in another wet test before the season begins next week.
