Johno.UK should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The possibility to build a Subaru was around long before BMR did it and I bet none of them would be complaining if they had done it first. If there is any fault it's with TOCA for not stopping the possibility when it was first mentioned.

Sutton is a top drawer driver in anything as he's shown in TCR, Clios and at Goodwood.

I see no reason why Neal will not have another good season, regular podiums and probably in contention for the championship.

Plato - that's a good question. Has he still got it? I am still confused as to why he has struggled so much over the last couple of years in what is championship winning car. I assume that the change to FWD will bring about a reversal of his fortunes. The Vauxhall looked decent last season - in some races more than others.

While we are talking about the old guard - how is Collard going to fare in a FWD car, after years of driving the BMW?

The Car is part GT , part touring car when you spend time looking at its engine layout.

Have you seen any of his results outside of the Subaru? He does it in every car he's driven.

It's going to be interesting. How well the Civic do with a season under it's belt? Will Plato be back on form now he's back with FWD? How quickly will the new BMW and Corolla get up to speed? Not to mention how the top drivers in independent drivers will do too.

Did you not watch the 2016 season then? Sutton put the MG on pole in only his second ever round in BTCC at Donington. Then won at Croft in the MG in the wet. Then pole again at Silverstone and finished 1st on the road before the car was DQ'd.

Sutton proved himself in a 'normal' car long before he got in the Subaru. When have we seen the MG anywhere near that competitive since? Never.

The problem is that, in the eyes of certain people (and at least one on here), Ash Sutton isn't driving a Honda prepared by Dynamics.

...if Ash were in a Honda prepped by Dynamics then God help the opposition. He's the best driver by a mile in my opinion.

Yes, he would beat him. Turks would also beat Ash at times.

At the end of the season, if Turkington and Sutton were teammates, they'd both be title contenders in any car on the grid.

There might not be very much that we can all agree on, but I did think that Ash Sutton's talent might've been one of those things.

Alas not.
