Only in terms of Chilton and Tordoff being more unfortunate during the actual races. Good to see him doing well none the less. Cole really seems to have improved after last year's pole and win at BMR. There had been comments of that win was down to lack of ballast and boost adjustments, but at the end the day he still had to be able to drive the car.
He certainly seems to have gelled with the RS, not quite as fast as his stablemates have been, but he has been close on times and his battling craft during races is a lot more committed than he seemed to be in the past. Certainly wouldn't have expected him to be the lead Motorbase driver after both race meetings.
My concern over how quick the Eurotech Honda's have been so far means Simpson is qualifying too far up the grid. I get unnerved for anyone in his vicinity during the races.

Sweepstakes on how far up the field that backmarker gentleman driver Jason Plato gets his Subaru on Sunday? My guess is 17th.

I don't really understand why he's seemingly content with bumbling around miles off the pace. What's happened to the passion, the fire, the dirty tricks? At this moment it'd actually be less strange if he left the team mid-season rather than sticking it out in this purgatory.

JP is 30th in the standings around folks like Smelt, Jelley , Thompson

oh how the mighty have fallen ...

hope WSR finally sorted out Colin's electric gremlins , maybe Dick needs to call some priests to perform some exorcism on that car

So I've been totally out of the loop for years but have caught up on seasons past over the last few months. Really excited to see the full grids, different marques and so many potential race winners. But what has gone wrong for Plato? It seemed like he was well able to keep up with the development of the Subaru when he first drove it in 2016 but in the space of a few months (beginning of 2017) he just completely fell off the saddle...it's one thing to see such a fiery and successful driver get 'past it' but it's almost like two complete extremes from one season to the next and that is strange. Is there some detail I'm missing? The wiki page says that an accident in early 2017 broke his chassis which plagued him for the rest of the year but that seems a little nonsensical.

In sharp contrast to the season so far, looks like it's going to be hot and sunny over the weekend. Hopefully we don't see a repeat of 2016's punctures!

Honestly, I think Oulton and Croft will decide it. If he can't be in the top ten in the RWD tracks then I don't think he'll be back for Snetterton. This weekend I'm expecting "the car isn't suited to the circuit" excuses!

But then why remain for third year? I think he needs to get his act together before the season is out or he'll have difficulty getting back on the pace. The new crop of young guns (Ingram, Smiley, Cammish, Cook, Morgan et al) are not going to make it easy for the wiley old fox. Those boys can race hard!

Lol - how about respecting contracts with sponsors and, God forbid, maybe he wants his salary from the deals he put together.

Subarus are nowhere.. terrible to see. I reckon it's their last year in BTCC.

Surprised to see the BMWs up there at a track which traditionally doesn’t suit them, I guess the lack of weight helped.

does anyone doubt that he won't lose the start to Turks ?

Cammish 4rd , smells like Dynamics might bag podiums

Tingram 6th with full ballast , hope he won't have puncture


wonder why Goff did so poorly
