The highlight of that race has to be Chilton banging his head at the end of the race when he tried to get on the roof!

Overall PMR Vauxhall did much better than I expected, Subarus seemed to be caught up in a lot of incidents and the MGs were nowhere.

Impressed with Epps as well.

The Subaru team have had to place weight in the dash-board area to counteract the advantage they get from the low CoG of their drive-train. It would appear that this has upset the whole balance of the car.

Interesting comments from Paul O'Neill about BMR at the end there. Wonder what he is referring too...it seemed to go much deeper than just pace.

Did they? This isn't the BTCC of a few decades ago where it was very difficult for new teams/cars to come in. In fact, not achieving instant success is more surprising. Pretty much every NGTC car built after the first year has been successful within two months of running.

Could you expand? I stopped my recording at the end of the driver interviews and went out.

...better than I expected anyway, I know some others also thought PMR would struggle against this years grid quality and they did better than BMR Subaru did last year.

i had a great time at Brands, racing was good and plenty of cars proved they will be in contention this year, only real disappointment was the the subaru's well off the pace and seemed to be the cause of too many incidents, lets hope they get it together next time

Just got back from Brands - great days racing! There was some real 'elbows out' racing but most of what I saw was the right side of acceptability (for the BTCC ;-) ). The BMWs looked good, as did the Hondas (all of them), Jackson looked to be on it and is clearly the class of the Motorbase drivers. Disappointed with Newsham and Lloyd today though - didn't see the expected pace from either of them.

Wow! Where to begin?

Seems Tingram is like Flash playing the long game and can see both in the title race.

J.Smith did well to get pole and was holding his own in the race before that part failed which was a shame. Still at least Goff got three good results and should win at least once this season.

I'll post more later

Didn't the HARD cars have some issues with the wheel nuts in pre-season testing also?

I wonder if the nuts had been finely specced for the old tyres, but with the new wider tyres they are just loading up a touch more and causing the failures?

What was Plato alluding to with regard to the "changes made to the car on Wednesday"? He said they were still trying to work out the car after this...?

Perhaps TOCA have found a container big enough to hold Jason's ego and bolted that under the dashboard
