I think Jason's smart enough to know that scrapping with someone over 4th from last place (or similar no significant position) and risk damage on the car is metaphorically and literally pointless. And it'd cost BMR financially. They are already against a wall so making the situation even worse for no reward doesn't make sense.

Guys

Everyone saying about the grid squeeze incident just look back over history, ther have been some real big ones at Snetterton, Oulton and Brands.
More cars, and more equal cars means a lot more need to be desperate to gain or defend a position

Look at the 2017 Junior Ginetta races - Smalley Jumps harper (now Porsche) but gets squeezed into the wall and spun around Dyson I think it was...........its no different...drivers get spat off who are not to blame.....jeepers look at what happened to Smalley in Sundays Ginetta live race, binned off minding his own business giving away a top 2 (given the pace he had a win was an opportunity)

Its racing and happens all the time...........just about being smart to it or having a budget that you dont have to back off!

if they are in financial mire doesn't it mean they were big failures in gathering sponsorship ? after all they won the title previously, surely a good way to attract sponsors....

JP was the first to get a Swindon engine whilst Sutton and Price were still using the Mountune units from last year.

Lack of budget, pure and simple. Even some of the independent teams seem to have much better budgets allowing them to get some serious testing done during the winter. Something BMR failed to do for last year and this year. As a result of last year's lack of budget they struggled to pay last season's bills.

I suspect if one track is to disappear from the calendar in the not too distant future it will be Rockingham

Don't say I didn't tell you

Which if rumours are to be believed he paid for out of his own pocket. Going by the performance so far the Mountune was probably the better one to have!

Well, the Mountune engine was certainly pretty trick and let's face it, didn't look short of pace at the end of last season did it?
