I was thinking of GAVIN Smith

one of the big BTCC failed drivers

2 full season in works VX and never won a race despite small quality field and reverse grids...

Not sure why people and the series have such an issue with the Subaru. It was no more or less successful than the Honda and BMW and if you look at the wins and podiums, not an exact science I know, but I just don't get the fuss.

It's a case of what it could have been without the changes though. When you see how slow it is in a straight line and how it still manages to put in front running lap times it shows the cornering advantage it has. Whenever it's wet and the power isn't so important it flies. Every driver says it's amazing through the corner phase.

Yes but he was a less than average driver with a big wallet. His brother was better.

Gavin Smith was a similar pace to Shedden in the SEAT Cupra challenge, so there's something there. I'll concede he was underwhelming in the BTCC...

Gavin Smith did get better over time, but never to a level of a top line driver.

They were usually crashing into each other I seem to remember.

to be fair the astra sport hatch was a bit of a dog, not one of 888's better cars

Indeed, Ian Harrison realises he was wrong to drop Colin as he soon realised how bad the car was

Just resurrecting this one to say as someone who makes non-motor racing content on YouTube, this is entirely correct.

I make a show about old gaming magazines and twice I've used enough of someone's stuff they've got adverts on the video they get the money from, which is fair enough.

Rob Collard. Did anybody else see how anonymous he was this year? Maybe it was the switch to a new team along with running a FWD car for the first time in years but he seemed a bit lost in the midfield and never looked comfortable in the car. Not so many accidents just not as sharp and quick as previous years.

Do we think he still has the appetite to come back next year?

I think Rob is hoping to get back in a WSR seat. He never seemed to find a sweet spot in the Astra.
