Well it is three weeks till media day, as has been said we are in for a truly enthralling season and I think that is true across the package.

Going to be a vintage year.

Yes, a very big tick on the sponsor front. Maybe enough to keep a Huffster happy. Or maybe any one of several ex WTCR pilots. Personally I think WTCR is going to die on it's backside soon; costs are stupid and several
manufacturers want out or have got out.

How do you know Halfords/Yuasa aren't involved and informed with any potential drive?

Imagine if Dynamics roll:

The Motorbase/M.Jackson situation previously suggests that both teams would have no qualms with usurping each other.
PMR thought they had the big story of the winter with M.Jackson's return.
Motorbase thought they had a bigger story with a new title sponsor / big name driver.
Dynamics upstage them both with a return to the BTCC for a 3-time champion in a brand new FK8.

I think Dynamics' sponsors would be quite happy with that publicity?

This also backs up Matt Neal's interview at Autosport where he said he's working hard to help get Flash a drive. (For the season!)

So is all this about motorbase having a big sponsor actually real or just a lot of people adding 2+2 and getting it completely wrong, if they had a big sponsor surely Sheddon would be signed and announced

Motorbase's sponsor is not linked to Shedden driving for them.

So your 100% sure there is a title sponsor, I guess your source has told you about it, has your source said if there is a 3rd driver signed

It was mentioned earlier with a "where would the extra budget come from?!" But its Team Dynamics at the end of the day. They will have ways and means of running 3 cars. And who knows how much of a budget they actually have? I personally think it would be sufficient to cover 3 cars.

Also someone said that BTC have got the only new fk8 to be built this off season but who actually knows how many they have built? Pretty sure they could get one put together fairly quickly. Especially a team that supplies cars to other teams on the grid.

Will be very interesting that's for sure. I'd personally love to see him back in a honda because even with his 3 titles he has unfinished business in btcc. He could be the one to take it to Turkington and stop him getting to number 5 first.
