I'll have £100 on Tim Harvey getting his first name wrong during the commentary!

Jokes aside, it's a great move for Ollie, I don't think the Audi was/is a bad car but the Focus is definitely a big step forward.

Nah - How he behaved in his attempt to weasel out of a recently agreed contract with his current team in the hope he would be guarateed the role of Shedden's replacement couldn't have backfired better IMO.

Like Shedden, i don't think the BTCC lost anything from him not being on the grid / racing last season.

Good luck to Ollie for next year stepping into the Focus - hopefully it gets him more time at the correct end of the grid smile

What he said - all of it. And I hope Ollie's car isn't the one that makes up the numbers while the team focus on a #1 driver.

I really liked watching Mat Jackson in his early years especially in the BMW, he let his speed do the talking and was pretty clean, but latterly he joined the dirty driving mob and I really CBF'd with that. No loss to the championship IMO.
