I can't argue with that. Fingers crossed you won't be needing the spare panels anyway

Unfortunately "spare panels" is the name of the game! 😊

RWD has a 30kg weight penalty this season and I believe there is something else for the Subarus although don't think it's been announced yet?

Having said that RWD does have an advantage, especially at Croft and Knockhill, but if you removed Sutton and Turkington from the equation you wouldn't have such a difference?

Maybe Ash and Colin should be made to eat doughnuts all winter?! 😊

Exactly.

I think the calendar needs shuffled around a bit, it's always a bit too rwd-friendly in the middle with Oulton, Croft and Knockhill.

Yeah I always thought that, they could do with Thruxton and say Silverstone in between to mix up the ‘strong’ circuits for either drivetrain. It might stop some of the whining and whinging from various parties too!

Glad to see you acknowledge that Ash and Colin aren't only doing well because of RWD and that both are top tin top drivers

I remember being amazed at the sheer amount of damage on AWEs car one weekend: can't remember which round but you posted a short walk around video.

He hadn't even been in a "crash" as such, just clearly roughed up like fairground dodgems. Looked like Jaws had eaten his sill too! Am I remotely right in thinking this sort of poor bump and bang driving - by some, not including AWE - is a major part of the budget?

So if RWD has a new 30kg weight penalty this year, has TOCA conceded ground on the 1st gear ratio they were forced to change...?

Presumably the change for the Subarus is that they have to put that weight further forward to counteract how far back their engine is? Bit like the change last year when they raised their CofG.

Interesting to read on the excellent Touring Car Register that Josh Price and Jason Plato have swapped cars for this year, and Ash Sutton is using the ex-James Cole chassis.

Why would they choose to leave ash Sutton’s car in dust covers, when Plato’s car was a mess?
