BTCC arrives at Croft this weekend, for it's annual visit to the north east. I would like to have gone but other circumstances meant money is tight. After the hot sunny conditions of Oulton Park, ideal for BMW's lets hope there's a bit more competition from the fwd brigade.
Don't know whether Carl Breeze has sourced another G50 for this round after the monster crash at Oulton.
Steven are you going for this event? If you are hope you have a great time.

I am going mate. Even though it looks like it's going to be another wet one. I think Knockhill has more dry racing then what Croft does. I think it's only been dry 1 day out of about 10 visits.

Shame you can't make it this time around, But I understand about money, Am having to pay for my mates ticket otherwise he wouldn't be able to go.

Am looking forward to seeing Aaron Slight racing in the Porsche carrera cup. cheers

I am looking foward to this, hopefully more BMW domination and Vauxhall are poor (especially Neal). I love the back section of Croft, it always amazes me how they race so close through their.

Onslow-Cole replaces Morrison for Croft

http://www.btcc.net/html/generalnews_detail.php?id=1511&month=0&year=2008&form=&searchterm=

wonder if this is finance related, has Morrison got the funds to do the full season? I was told Paul O'Neill hasnt got the funds to do the full season yet for Techspeed, but the amount of publicity he's brought for sunshine.co.uk it would be worth them upping their investment.

I think it has somethinng to do with Morrison's lack of speed. He has been quite a lot slower than Chilton, Team Aon are probably hoping that TOC can move the team a bit higher up the grid.

+ 1.

I like Turkington and hope he can win. As long as Matt Neal is down the field I'm okay with that, hopefully a BMW knocks him off. lol!

Morrison has been getting better, scored his first points at Oulton, he had no pre season testing, first time in the car was at Brands. TOC hasnt driven since last year as far as i know.

Did he roll over in a Peugeot 306 at Brands many years ago?

I think he did, it was yellow, on the GP section.

Looking foward to the races today, whilst flicking over to Le Mans too.

WSR 1-2 looked pretty easy for them, but Vaulkhard had an eventful time ending with the spin and hit by Chilton. He was brave going side by side with Matt Neal just before that!! Lets hope both cars can be repaired for the next race.

I would loved to have gone, never been to Croft, but money was tight after unplanned trip back to Torquay for funeral in the week. Would have been good to meet up with Steven again, don't know whether he will go to more BTCC events this year.
