I've got to say - it's a sad indictment when a driver's poor luck is considered to be a laughing matter.

It's alright, it's just the local forum troll looking to be fed.

BBC weather currently suggesting rain across both Saturday and Sunday.

You expect/hope he'll run cleanly and bag some points? Maybe win a race? I'd like to see that, but Sam is fresh out of good luck. Heck, if he landed a seat at Merc F1 it would probably breakdown or be driven into!

I would hope that all drivers run cleanly, and that results are not lost due to bad luck.

I appreciate that this is unlikely to be the case - it just saddens me when people seem to take pleasure out of drivers' bad luck.

I'm interested to see how the Subaru does. It was up there in the recent Thruxton test, not that you can take that as an accurate assessment. I have a feeling it will do a lot better than last year

should keep the lid on any tyre drama. but thruxton has to be last on the list of places you'd want to be racing in the rain?

Has there ever been a wet race at Thruxton in the NGTC era? Sure there must have been but can't remember any?

2012 was the last time it was wet at Thruxton (and it was absolutely horrible as I remember it!) - that was during the S2000/NGTC transition so it was a mixture of both types on the grid.

Only two to be looked into, Smiley on Jackson and Jordan's appeal against the decision not to blame Collard for the Race 1 incident..

Your memory appears to be clouded by an inherent prejudice towards Plato. As confirmed on the day of the event, Plato's contact was dealt with through verbal warning - 'ramming' never came into it.

I hope it gets properly resolved, we don't need any of that kind of controversy repeating itself at Thruxton

Certainly a few drivers went a bit OTT at Thruxton, like Plato and a few others, but luckily it didn't reach a serious point. So hopefully we can continue having good close hard but fair racing, like we had at Brands. It's nice to see more contact being dealt with, even though I have seen worse
