Might be wrong, but was it not ‘WSR - Team BMW’ before (Google search says yes) and pretty sure their profile picture has been changed too, can’t remember if that referred to BMW previously.
Their website still has the branding & links to BMW's own website.

Did he have that sponsor in JCW last season? Seems odd if he did.

Davanti Tyres have been his primary sponsor in JCWs for a few years now

Surely it should make no difference then, seeing as he's been part of the support package with that sponsor for several seasons & therefore advertising the brand live on TV already?

This may be a prelude to BMW reducing its part in the team. The Hill car is effectively a satellite entry and Morgan is in his final year of contract and the car is the ciceley entry in another name . I wonder if Turkington will run in Bavarian colours this year before retiring and that will be that . Interestingly we know Watson was in line for the 3rd car with help from MB. Whilst Moffatt was also linked again with his own title sponsor . If so this may put the last seat in doubt unless theirs someone out their with either deep pockets or is connected with MB stable .

If only there was some way of seeing who sponsors were. I don't know, maybe they could write their name in big letters or have a logo on side of the car.

It's not so much that Kwik Fit can veto another sponsor, it's more that the sponsor doesn't want their logo against a much bigger and better promoted rival

I couldn't remember off the top of my head, so I asked the question instead. Fair enough I could've done a quick Google search, but there's no need to be like that about it. There's enough of that on here as it is.

You're mixing up when they ran Dunlop in place of Hi-Q. Hi-Q is owned by Goodyear

Hmm… well it seems there was a problem at PMR, and I wasn’t sure he has the budget for anything more than that but maybe so. If Huff’s at Toyota (Crees was in talks there before) then surely not WSR, is that all that’s left? Perhaps this hypothetical extra Cupra?

I like Crees, he’s competent enough and certainly is a great enthusiast. Maybe he’s bought a car to run for himself? You never know

Surely another revival of Hard under a different name to run Crees/AN Other can't be on the cards? That would be a major surprise.

Think Crees will be at PMR so that just leaves the WSR seat now.
