Robshillito1990 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I find it odd how last year he started off as a fully fledged Subaru driver with the same livery as everyone else then it was like the other 3 cars were run seperately he never seemed to get the help from the others like Cole did which could explain his lack off pace and running near the back most of the time

As said by Alfisti, it comes down to money. BMR expected Cole to sign for another year, but he went off to Motorbase. Last year Price was the last minute fill the seat and keep the TBL, he didn't have a full seasons funding in place, but pulled in A-plan for the second half of the season.

Again this year they were looking for someone to bring some £££, obviously Price brought some (maybe not enough for the full season). Don't be surprised to see a mid season change of livery again.

As ever while all 32 seats are filled, there are a number that haven't got the full seasons funds in place, with the relaxing of the driver changes up from 1 to 2 per season, expect maybe a few more 'swaps' during the year.

Donington's new MSV red & white livery instead of the old blue & white one?

Colin McRaes old Subaru to replace the Levorg?...

In all seriousness I can't link the two; possibly BMR have contracted design/ fabrication of some components to Prodrive. Bit last minute if needed for running tomorrow!

Maybe they sold a truck that they no longer need to Prodrive? After all, BMR is only running three cars this year, down from eight a couple of years ago. They won't need as many trucks.

He's not a last-minute signing. He's been signed a while.

The delay in announcing is down to waiting for the sponsors.

You'll see another team with a big sponsor announcement this week. It doesn't mean that they have only just signed the sponsor, it means the sponsor didn't want to announce it until this week. The deal was done last year.

So why does Josh say that the decision to sign with BMR was only made after the snetterton test a couple of weeks ago?

And that at the time of his TCR UK test, he was still considering a Euro/World TCR drive?

"he considered a switch to the European series - but not TCR UK - before his BTCC plans were completed.

'Because of our budget it [remaining in the BTCC] was unrealistic at first'"

The new Holmatro/TOCA safety truck looks outstanding. Let's hope it's never called into service.
