Question for anybody: the Subaru did not get it's customary advantage of good drive out of the corners.

To my mind nobody seemed to be struggling for drive... has the new tarmac levelled the playing field?

Just watched all three races as I was away for the weekend. Sutton seemed to be getting a good punch out of the hairpin but it was cancelled out by the straight line speed advantage of the cars he was against.

They did a video call ‘Straight out of Croft’ , it was a very light hearted Micky taking video about how they were going to blow all the opposition away. All teams and a lot of drivers got a mention, but someone somewhere had a sense of humour failure and took offence to the saying something along the lines of ‘Jake took a hit from Chilton’ and in the response Zak from TPR who stars in the video kicked a box of Shedded Wheat. The whole video was done in a humorous way, so I struggle to see why anyone would get so upset. Obviously too many ❄️ about in the paddock.

Remember that Chilton had this to say about Blundell recently:
'I honestly think he shouldn’t be in this championship because he’s that far off – it’s dangerous.'
So I would imagine the teams might not be at the light-hearted jovial stage yet?

It was a parody rap of Straight Outta Compton, young Zaki from TPR fancies himself as a bit of a rapper, it's all usually send ups they do, as was this one. Think they could have chosen the team they said about 'hitting' their driver better, especially as Chilton lost his Brands win from his contact and then Blundell's and Chilton's clash.

However going crying to TOCA I think was off, surely a quick word to the Team boss could have resolved the issue more quickly and less embarrassingly for all parties involved.

There is a good reason Chilton is known as Chilly to some, because he is such a snowflake

Is that it? Someone knocking over a packet of cereal? The way they were so apologetic sounded like they had implied something about Tom's lifestyle or something.
For goodness sake, yes what is wrong with a quiet word rather than running to TOCA, ovet the last couple of years I've lost a lot of respect for motorbase in general now.

From Facebook -
Dan Kirby:
'Dear fellow BTCC Teams, Drivers & Fans,
During the Croft race weekend we released one of our regular social media parody videos “Straight out of Croft”
Having always been previously well received from prior BTCC event’s the Trade Price Cars Racing team have continued to work extremely hard to deliver new and exciting content for our followers.
As stated in our video & title social post no offence or upset was ever intended in this latest release. Our sole intent is to generate social engagement with new and existing fans of the BTCC whilst bring a refreshing and imaginative edge to our media. Our content is always produced with a light hearted approach however on reflection depending on your view point it could be considered either funny or perhaps offensive. For those of you that have viewed our content and/or met us over the first part of the season I’m sure would accept there being no malice on our part.
Id like to offer my sincere apologies also to the BTCC community should any other teams, drivers, sponsors or fans have similar thoughts on what was produced.
May I also take this opportunity to thank those that have engaged with our media in recent months as we look forward to Oulton Park in 2 weeks time.'

Shaun Hollamby:
'It would be really helpful for everyone involved if this could be put to bed now as any discussions won't be helping. I'm not being "social media police" just "reality police" Thanks'

I'm going to respect the request from Shaun, hopefully others here can follow suit.

Sweet baby Jesus - I don't know which is worse- making some infantile video or grovelling about having made it.



Is anybody involved in this nano storm in a tiny , tiny tea cup actually over 11 and do their mums know what they're up to ?



That whirring noise ? It is the sound of tough guys like Gerry Marshall and Frank Gardner spinning in their graves ....

Sensible words from Shaun as usual. Probably time to move onwards with an Oulton thread...

Due to being else where, le mans, just caught up on the croft roud.

Some good racing but the BMW's are looking to good at the moment how long before they are adjusted back down to give the rest of the field a more even playing field?
