Honda with Jack Clarke I'd assume. Maybe another young driver there as well, Jack Goff or Tingram?

I wonder if any teams have been knocking on Infiniti's door. I mean, they were interested enough to get involved with SOPR but results didn't go the way they wanted so if a big enough team comes in....?

...well, there's my theorising, anyway. I'll head back into my box now until media day

I reckon Type R's. I assume the budgets there and imagine what Depper or Smith could do with reverse grid results in 2016... I expect if it's that sort of news it will be MN.

Or they have a new team cat.

Oh, wish I hadn't read this before bed.

No doubt they'll have a new sponsor for the inside of the left front wheelarch of Jeff Smith's Civic...God I'm getting cynical in my old age.

Well it looks like an upgrade and a 3rd car. Would be good to see a AJ return

Type R for Eurotech in 2016 - possibly three of them. Jack Clarke anyone?

That is exciting news! It would make sense if the third car was Clarke and Eurotech almost became the Toro Rosso of Honda.

You beat me to it on naming Clarke as the likely 3rd driver, though anyone with backing would surely eye that seat as one of the better options for 2016, providing they (Eurotech) can get a TBL. We already have AmD in line to pick one up and Handy stating they want one for a 2nd car, Team HARD were chasing a 2nd one at the start of the year (though after the season plans may if changed) and we haven't mentioned anything from the 'big teams' yet!

Looks like it's going to be a bun fight for TBLs.

We know SOPR will loose their last one as they are not manufacturer backed now.

Welch has lost one and RAR have had one suspended (likely loose it ?)

So that's "possibly" four spare (although two aren't perms ones).

Do we see some teams leaving/shrinking (would BMR go down to three cars ?)

The TBL system certainly makes the rumour mill interesting! Wonder what the deal for Motorbase will be in all this?

RAR's was suspended, so assuming Hunter makes it to Brands this weekend they will keep it.

Welch have one up for grabs, as is the ex Hawken/Coates/Donnelly Infiniti one. Who know's if we'll see the other Infiniti back.

Was Alex Martin not meant to be running for Motorbase's satellite team (a la Jack Clarke 2014) before they pulled out. Do Team Parker own his TBL now or is it on loan from Motorbase?

Exciting times!

I wonder if Shunter-Abbott will return at RAR next year. Most tv-shots of him the last couple of races featured lots of flying parts...

Good move by Eurotech. The old Civic's getting a bit long in the tooth now, so time to upgrade. Hopefully we'll see how much better Smith and Depper will go.
