luckn002 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
To be fair, since watching a few other race series recently (WTCR, PWC, Goodwood MM) - and I know they all have different types of car and recovery systems etc -, it really struck me how long it took to recover cars compared to the BTCC. Maybe it's just me, but, in terms of being quick, I think the BTCC weekends do very well.

Agreed, you could say they have more practice

But really, I think it's down to the hook system just above the windscreen on the cars, which also means the cars aren't dragged along the ground causing further damage.

I was wincing when I saw one of the Motorbase Fords swinging from a telehandler at Starkeys during 3.

He had time to do three flying laps. If he'd gone for a ride height check at the end of his out lap, he'd still have been able to put in one flying lap which would have counted, and maybe two.

Yeah. It was as if he was being dared by his buddies to bounce it off the armco!

I still think the marshalls at Monaco GP weekend are the best and by some margin. Slick and quick.

Just a quick one from me, here's my vid from Sundays action if anyone interested.

I don't think I've seen the touring cars so well behaved for a long time, just shows that it is possible!

Thanks for this video. I now see what happened at the start of race 3, Cole touched the kerb, went out of shape and caught Tordoff. Yes there was a lot of hard but fair racing. Also loving the sound of the cars which you never hear on TV

Are you sure Cole wasn't pushed from behind ? He seems to accelerate off the kerb
