BTCC 2018 - Silverstone - Rounds 25, 26, 27

Penultimate round of the year. Last year's results -

PP - Goff
R1 - Ingram
R2 - Goff
R3 - Neal

Driver changes include Ethan Hammerton replacing Caine / Boardley at HARD, and Josh Caygill replacing Boardman / Geddie at AmD.

Turkington will need a bad weekend here, otherwise the title is his - and it may well happen given the BMW's track record at Silverstone.

Also, a picture on the BTCC's Twitter feed shows the Collard BMW this morning still with Ricky's number, so it's looking likely that he'll be in again in place of Rob.

And finally, Tony Gilham is promising exciting news on the Friday...

The weather forecast currently is mixed for Saturday, but dry for Sunday.

Comfirmation that Ricky Collard will continue -

"As points leader, Colin must carry the maximum 75kg success ballast this weekend. This makes his BMW the heaviest car in the field through practice, qualifying and the opening race.

Colinís team-mate will be BMW Motorsport Junior Ricky Collard, who drives for a third straight event as father Rob continues to recover from a concussion sustained at Snetterton in July."

I would be glad to see Ricky in for the old man again, big fan of Rob's but he hasnt seemed right at all this year, time and injuries are catching up I think, I wouldnt want him to bow out in this way but Ricky is going to be perfectly capable long term

More exciting news from Tony Gilham? well it cant be a driver again guessing some car updates. Id like to see them have a good weekend, it looked like they had turned a corner at Rockingham, the wet at Knockhill didnt really show us anything and the car has never suited the track anyway.

As for AMD, Another weekend with 1 car coasting round at the back with extra ballast and a driver who isnt up to speed with the car, that said the MG has always gone quite well here so Butcher may spring a surprise in what seems to be the cars penultimate outing

I reckon Turkington will have a shocker and itíll be a 4 way fight at Brands.

134 points still available, itíll only take a DNF to stir things up.

he would need to outscore Tingram by 25 points but don't think it will happen on this track , that Toyota will be super fast here


very glad it will be a dry weekend, really fed up with wet ones

Coming into this weekend fully expecting Lewis Hamilton to sweep all three BTCC races, then cruise to victory at Singapore, and then somehow steal the IndyCar title from Scott Dixon at Sonoma. It'll suck.

Jesting aside, I still feel Ingram's in a strong position if he can nail qualifying and if his alternator lasts the distance. He'd still be roughly level with Turks had he not had those DNFs at Snetterton and Rockingham.

That Toyota has not been anything like as reliable as it needs to be on more than one occasion; yes Silverstone qualy is unlikely to be great for CT, but if that is the case then staying out of trouble in R1 is the name of the game, trying to work forwards in R1 & 2 and hope for a lucky break with the reverse grid draw. It is possible CT could become champion. Personally I hope not, for the simple reason it'll take some of the edge off of the Brands finale.

but Turks had some gremlins of his own at Donington he only scored 6 points the whole meeting due to electrical gremlins

Snetterton he only really scored the race 3 , and 1 point in race 1


so maybe this bad luck balances out a bit during season

there would be an edge of who is vice champion

Tingram, Sutton, Jordan , Cook , Chilton , Morgan and Goff all could get that 2nd place


and come to think of it, this is the first season in years when a Team Dynamics driver isn't in the title hunt come the finale !!!!

Even though Turkington wouldn't be undeserving of the title, I'm rooting for Ingram this year. I reckon he has the pace and confidence to put a good programme together at Silverstone but I'll have my fingers and toes crossed that his car doesn't throw any spanner in the works (no pun intended, sorry).

with Tony Gilham's reputation for disappointing #gamechangers over the last 4 or 5 years, its probably that they have extra pink bobble hats available.

or next year he will be running all 32 cars and gradually reduce his ambitions
