The 2012 Season Finale, Brands Hatch GP, Oct 20/21

Well folks, here it is - the grand end-of-term party.

With 20 points for a win, 1 point for pole, 1 point for fastest lap in each race and 1 point for leading each race there's a theoretical maximum 67 points to play for (assuming pole, fastest lap in each race and winning each race).

Head boy at the start of the weekend is Gordon Shedden, closely followed by prefects Jason Plato and Matt Neal. In fourth place, with an outside chance only if the three ahead have a disastrous weekend and he grabs all the points on offer is Andrew Jordan.

There are more potential combinations and outcomes than my A-Level maths can calculate, but one thing's for sure - any non-finish for the top 3 will likely take it to the weekend's third race, although Shedden could win the championship by the end of race 2...

When the bell rings at the end of the school day on Sunday, who will have been best behaved? Will it be a studious, calm and educated outcome, or will it be a set of playground fights? Will the headmaster have to step in and put any of the protagonists in detention?

Not sure to be honest, it's too tight to call. I'd like to see Shedden take it though - he's the least objectionable of the 3 with a realistic chance of winning (Jordan needs too much bad luck to hit the others to be in contention).

It would be great if some of the smaller teams did well, like Rob Austin and Dan Welch.

What he said.

Hoping for Shedden as champion, and WSR as indie champions.

Sheds champion, Jordan indie champion, Plato left crying into a pile of haribo and sandwiches.

Only the petrol station.

Thank goodness this is the last round of the year...not exactly been a classic has it?

If Honda don't win, there's something seriously wrong. And I'm saying that from a totally neutral point of view. Pretty clear since the start of the season that Honda have by far and away had the best chassis, and if they were on a level footing with everyone else turbo wise a Honda driver would probably have had it wrapped up weeks ago.

So A* effort by everyone at TOCA and Alan Gow for fabricating it into a "last round decider" again.

Annoyingly, it is actually a really nice sandwich.

Back to the topic...

Hoping for Shedden to take the title, I thought at the start of the year that it's "his turn" really, much as '09 felt like it was Turkington's year. Jordan for the indie title and Pirtek for the teams, just to complete the Honda set

I'd like to Shedden win as he's certainly deserving. But at the same time, I wouldn't mind seeing Plato win -- it would even out from 2011 where I felt the normally aspirated cars got the shaft on "equality." Heck, if you just took transcripts from 2011 and 2012 and blanked out the names, you wouldn't be able to tell who was talking!

I'd love to see Dave Newsham show us one last bit of Vectra magic, though

The NGTC cars struggled last year on the GP track, so maybe we'll see some S2000s up front?

What about another Newsham win? It'll probably the last ever chance for the venerable Vectra to taste the front again, BTW.

I still really struggle to cheer for Newsham, he seems really nice and a proper gent, friends that have spoken to him say he's straight up and has a lot of time for the fans, but I cannot stand his team mate. fair enough he's got a winning team together, but it's his incessant basking in someone else's glory that really does it for me (such as his Vettel-itus, if you haven't won the race, you keep that bloody finger down!)

The MG's have got a new paint job for Brands for cancer research, look so much better than usual.
