BTCC 2020 season discussion, News and Rumours!

We're nearly half way through 2019, and I hear that the 2020 calendar is due to be released later today, so how about a new rumours thread...

Robin Marriott should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Rounds 1-3 28/29 March Donington Park (National)
Rounds 4-6 11/12 April Brands Hatch (Indy)
Rounds 7-9 25/26 April Silverstone (National)
Rounds 10-12 16/17 May Thruxton
Rounds 13-15 13/14 June Oulton Park (Island)
Rounds 16-18 25/26 July Snetterton (300)
Rounds 19-21 15/16 August Croft
Rounds 22-24 29/30 August Knockhill
Rounds 25-27 26/27 September Silverstone (International)
Rounds 28-30 10/11 October Brands Hatch (Grand Prix)


Thatís more like it. Big changes from this year, I think Donington will be a better first round, Iím not a fan of Brands Indy anyway.

Glad thereís not two Thruxton rounds and Iím very happy itís Silverstone joining the calendar as itís a totally different circuit.

There wasn't going to be a 2nd Thruxton round. It will change each year.

For me two Silverstones should stay for the time being, until Lake Torrent is finished I'm joking, it'll never happen but at least having Silverstone National and International there is a bigger variety than two Thruxton visits or anything else. And opener at Donington is a good choice.

Pleased with those changes! Will be great to see a new track (or layout at least!) featured. Should be a good silly season too with quite a few cars due an upgrade...

Donington in March. Must get some new shorts, sandals and stock up on sun cream!

Apart from the above it looks good to me.

I'm still thawing out from 2005!

Pleased with the extra Silverstone date. Basically a different venue.

Nice to see theyíve mixed it around a bit, so itís not the same every season. And having two Silverstone circuits, one in Northants, the other in Buckinghamshire is better than two Thruxton rounds

Who will have TBL's in 2020?

I would like to see the 2 spare TOCA TBL's go to a new team.

Thinking aloud...

3x WSR
2x PMR
2x Dynamics
2x BTC
2x Ciceley
1x LTR
2x Speedworks (+1)
2x Motorbase (-1)
2x Excelr8
2x HARD (-2)
2x AMD
2x TPC
2x TPR (+1)
1x HMS
2x BMR?? How long is the Subaru deal for?

-1 Simpson?? Will he stick around at the rate this season is going, and with an older car?

By my count that's 29, so room for another - though guaranteed to be completely wrong!

If Blundell is still interested in the BTCC after this season I wonder if WSR will pursue a 4th TBL for him as they were his first choice according to reports in the past week?

I will go on record now and bet dangly bits TG/#HARD will continue with 4 cars.

I don't see Barty reducing number of cars unless there aren't any takers with £'s. Doubt Nic H will stick around - or rather doubt his sponsors will. He is pushing too hard and driving the car too hard: a bit like Cookie did the MG. Except Cook was strong in a weak car and Nic is the reverse.

In other "making the numbers up with not a hope in heck" one wonders if Simpson will go and compete in a different series. The odd flash of speed but generally lack of combined with the ability to bend metal at a budget sapping rate.

Blundell? He'll run for the season and be off.

Wondering if the first musical #HARD chair will be during the summer break? Not hearing any dissent in the ranks or rumours of stretched budgets, it's definitely a happier camp than last year.
