    in case we have any fans, British Touring Car Championship starts tomorrow at Brands Hatch on itv 4 & finishes as usual at 12 October. but for the 1st time it wont be visiting Rockingham instead Thruxton twice 19th may /18th August. along with other Croft 16th june, Oulton park 30th june, Snetterton 4 august, Knockhill 15 Sept & Silverstone 29th Sept

    The series still has some of the well known names Defending champion Colin Turkington, 2017 champion & polesitter Ashley Sutton, Tom Ingram Andrew Jordan, Sam Tordoff, Adam Morgan despite being over 50 Jason Plato (who has qualifed 2nd), Rob Collard & Matt Neal still fighting but the 1st 2 teams are in the new Vauxhall team after leaving/ pushed from Subaru & BMW respectively. but we have some very intresting Newcomers in Nicolas Hamilton & Mark Blundell

    but ive got my eyes on 2nd round at Donington Park when Ill be in hospitality (ooh la la) joining my dad for his Christmas present

    Nicolas Hamilton raced a modified car in 12 BTCC races in 2015. He hasn't done any motorsport since then.

    we had a interesting trio of races in BTCC, espcially as being at the front of the grid was almost pointless with the winner coming from 10th 15th & 6th.

    Race 1 it was too wet for slicks & too dry for wets. so was a real gamble on what tyre to go on as the 1st 4 & last 5 favoured wets but middle favoured the slicks. but on the whole if you weren't on the slicks you were siting ducks & Plato you wouldve though with his expierence. he wouldve gone with gut feeling on go on the slicks, but he paid for that mistake

    Race 2 was the weirdest championship wise, because all the championship contenders were ballast free & all outsiders were at the front, with a fantastic drive through the field from Jordan. then Race 3 was more normal a few stupid moves which sutton was right in his complaints & Chilton finishing off a great weekend for himself 3rd & 1st. all sets it up nicely for Donington park In 3 weeks, as it like race 2 because all the championship contenders are ballast free with Turkington, Ingram, Jordan, Sutton, Neal all 8th or below
