i like the idea! But if they did this for a 60th anniversary special I would have wanted a real guest entry, something like an old superstar like an Andy Rouse (never gonna happen) or an Alain Menu for a bit of nostalgia

New Theory Time!

http://www.btcc.net/2018/02/22/team-...amme-underway/

No Jake Hill at testing!! Now I'm sure its because of budget, no car or other commitments, but what if Motorbase had approached Team Hard for Jake's availability?

Now this would be MORE than a bit of double standards I know, but Jake I think has been close with Motorbase before and nearly got the drive last year, could Tony and Dave have done a deal here?

Filling the Motorbase seat with someone Motorbase can rely on and allowing Team Hard to take Dan Kirby and his car dealership sponsorship money on the 4th car

Who says it's new though... it could be a team with a licence granted in November.

The fact that TOCA/Gow don't publish the entry list 'til media day (ish) leaves us guessing.

If I had to guess I'd say they'll be title sponsor on one (or more) of the four HARD/Brisky CCs.

On my form it'll turn out to be a new team with Mat Jackson driving 😁

I think I'm right in saying that two of the Hard cars will be entered under the 'Brisky Racing' banner. So I'd imagine that the other two will be TPC Racing entries.

If it's anything more exciting than that I'd be surprised.

Not only has Tony a Gilham tagged Jake Hill in his report on today’s testing saying he’ll be happy, it is Jake’s Birthday today, so they might of given him the day off!

Going by this year so far, it'll probably end up being engered as "Team #HARD with Brisky Racing with TAG Industries Racing With TPC Racing..." and probably some more

Suppose a birthday trackday for a racing driver is a bit of a bus mans holiday really

jsmee has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Never one to look at mockup silhouettes as an indicator, but that silhouette is definitely an MG6.

Maybe Dan Kirby has signed to drive the second AmD MG?

Looks CC like to me, but it ain't easy to tell in silhouette.

Besides which, a marketing/ design monkey may well have knocked that up without much guidance...

Exactly this, it is very rare for a marketing mockup to be accurate!

Is there anywhere to watch races outside of the UK (replays) online?

I've been keeping an eye on the pre season and im tempted to follow the series more closely then I have in previous years
rich07 is online now
