Will Turkington still drive for WSR this season? It would be shame if he left the team.

Andy Neate joins WSR, no doubt helped by a large amount of folding...

Hope he'll be ok after that Britcar accident

i didn't think andy could ever race again.

When he had the accident he said he had had a btcc drive lined up for the next year (last year 2009)

anyway i wish him a lot of luck in btcc

Yikes, that list is appalling. It shows how the ecomomy is still badly effecting racing, especially with Plato without a drive. Sad Sad Sad

Neal will get a Honda seat i'm sure, all the others will be missed for sure if they dont get a drive, got a feeling it will be a dissapointing season, hope i'm wrong

Well it's not looking good on that evidence, although hopefully a few of them will manage to put a few deals together before the start of the season.

Yep, in 5 weeks we need to sort out a new camera and a new tent, no doubt the first time we pitch the tent will be at Thruxton!
Maybe by then we'll have a grid together, either that or we'll have 8 cars and John George stands a chance of winning a race...

The situation is very unfortunate, how many drivers are actually confirmed so far? Doesn't BTCC start only two weeks after F1? Yikes, not long for these top touring car drivers to find seats. The fact that the current champion cannot find a seat tells you a lot.

Thruxton is very close to me, in fact, only down the road really. If the driver and team line up improves i.e. Plato and Turkington there - I may be tempted to attend. I last went their in 1999, great track and you can get so close to action at the first turns - no fencing in the way either.

There is now Sav, fencing runs all the way round the outside of the first turn. Last time i went in 2007 watched from the complex, usually get some good tc action and clashes there. Thruxton are apparently opening the track up a bit further round the lap now, and next year will have spectator banking alongside Woodham Hill as well.

Is BTCC just really unappealing these days? I guess WTCC and DTM are massively popular but this series looks in disarray. Shocked

Oh dear, that is a shame. Previously, their was very low fencing and you could get excellent pictures.

I am worried about BTCC, the list of drivers that haven't got drives that Matt posted is alarming.

It will all be last minute, remember Plato only announced the RML deal 3 daey before the race, and Jackson didn't join til round 2.
I guess Turkington's dad will stump up some money to allow Colin to defend his title.

Yeah, it's a shame for Stephen, just as he was getting results in BTCC, still Porsches open up new avenues to further careers, look at Nick Tandy, great one off at Abu Dhabi last year and full time seat with Konrad for this year.
If Stephen gets the hang pretty quickly he can set himself up with a GT career a la Richard Westbrook.

Collard to WSR

http://www.btcc.net/html/generalnews_detail.php?id=1834&month=0&year=2008&form=&searchterm=

was expecting him to stay at Motorbase, lets hope Turks can get a seat there as well, or if not somewhere else.

Well I guess things aren't looking good for Turkington, although he isn't the only one struggling for a seat at the moment.
