Maybe Chilton will be Wookies team mate in the fords next year?
I'm just imagining the level of very high pitched screaming you'll do if that was announced

{Yes I agree you can put on a good show with a well home prepped car and a bit of savvy in a new series, but as soon as the bigger teams work it out themselves and start throwing guns at it it won’t be long before they’re chasing the diminishing returns and you get swamped.

Unfortunately that is a fact of life in national motorsport in general now, everything is a lot closer and more competitive. }

Rowbottom did it in Clio Cup with his dad with a van up against the top teams, In his first ever Clio race he put it on pole and in his last ever Clio race he was on pole it is rare but proves it can be done…..some good results in between too..
Yeah I’m not saying it can’t be done, I don’t know Dan’s full history in the championship but (aside from the fact that he’s quick) I doubt he would have been shy on spending what needed to be spent, and that family time and effort is only free on paper!

There's a good/shocking story I've been told bout one current team on the grid doing exactly this. Not sure if the story ever came out publicly. As it's a Hard one to tell without giving away too many names I'll shut up.

Thanks for the heads up... Australia is a bit of a commute to be honest.
“I’ll be back”... maybe.

F4... Looks impressive.
But wonder how it will fare against the MSV GB4 Championship.
Very similar...but GB4, allegedly cheaper, less TV coverage, but very closely related to the GB3 cars.

Rumours that Parker may run the Infiniti’s for Laser Tools in BTCC next year, Cammish alongside Moffat, plus 1.

PMR had been rumoured to be lined up for that, but looks like they’ll be running the Astra’s still. A lot hanging on where the TBL’s end up.

So sad to hear of Sir Frank Williams passing.
He will be sorely missed. RIP angel

At the BTCC "Night of Champions" (last Saturday evening at Straford upon Avon), Steve Rider commented that he was discussing a new award with Jade Edwards. The new award was to be "the most disruptive driver at the back of the field".

"That would be neat," replied Jade...

A dull Saturday afternoon.
How about the 1999 TV Masters Rallysprint Challenge;
(kills 40mins or so.)
Starring, a very young Mr Plato & Mr Harvey, Derek Warwick & Barrie ‘ Whizzo’ Williams angel, to name but a few.
Commentary from Charlie Cox too.
Chillax time
