Any news as to whether Matt Jackson will be back in 2019?? Did he do any racing this year or has he kept a low profile??

He's spent most of the year making and then sticking pins into a Dan Cammish voodoo doll.

Only got himself to blame at the end of the day. He did a few races in other series but not a whole season. If he can find the funding I expect he'll back in BTCC or maybe even the Porsches.

Interesting, if that's the S3's gone does that leave AMD running the MG under its own branding or is this the beginning of AMD just become a racecar builder rather than a race team (hopefully they will not lose there identity)

They did say in a radio interview that they would be running four cars but there would be a change of marque. So if they are counting the two Audis in that four then they must be dropping the MG's. Or they're not counting the Audi's as the four they're running in which case it might be two Hondas and two MG's. I think running six cars might be a step too far though.

btcc doesn’t allow one team or person or company to effectively control more than 4 cars

correct, so running 2 as Trade Price Cars and 4 as AMD would be a loophole to exploit.

Couple of pictures doing the rounds today with ‘plato’ on the doors of a motorbase focus.

Gotta be Lewis hasn’t it?

No, he was taking part in a Dunlop tyre test I believe.

You deserve a chance in a proven front running car.....plus you've been the best driver in those Audi's since they've been around.

Thanks mate that’s really appreciated! The test in the Focus answered a lot of questions and I think might have surprised a few people.

I’m ready to put in the extra commitment to make the step up so hopefully I’ll get a chance one way or another!
