    Oooh yes, always love a bit of BTCC. My favourites are possibly the Ginetta Juniors though - close racing with some good overtaking and plenty of bodywork damage.

    Why?

    Because he's a dirty driver and a cheat.

    When he conspired with another team against Plato, that was the final straw.

    Well I've always been a big Plato fan, with Matt Neal in and out of my top 3.
    A season to keep an eye on (as usual).

    What a great start :D

    Karma for Neal there, with someone doing to him what he is so fond of doing to others.

    I left it deliberately ambiguous for those who aren't watching the racing live.

    I don't have time to watch any of the support races, which is a shame as some of them are very entertaining.

    A good start to the season.

    Matt Neal struck lucky in the third race with the reverse grid.

    Based on what I saw today, Plato is going to have a hard time defending his title against the turbo-powered cars.
    The speed difference on the straight was immense.

    Do they usually pluck a ball out of the pot to boost someone up the grid? I've never really watched BTCC before..

    The third race is a reverse grid and the actual system used seems to change quite frequently

    I must admit I'm not a fan of it and the spinning wheel/bag of balls is very amateurish and unprofessional.
