Yes will be there for the racing but not qualifying. My favourite circuit is Thruxton and quite handy as its just down the road. Think the Honda's will be very strong here.

Depends how they carry the success ballast, they're 1st and 2nd in the championship so muchos extra weight for quali and race 1. At least there's no soft tyre to contend with for Thruxton!

Daniel Lloyd is the recipient of Neate's TBL, driving with the Eurotech team. They nearly had a third car sorted before the start of the season but it fell through, so they had a part-built car already. He's gone well before, probably take him a while to get up to speed with the NGTC machinery though.

Well I know what's gone on with the Neate story, hes wasn't any good, thats obvious, but he was released from his drive because hes sponser money didn't come through,  a company who he was going to bring on board as a title sponser, a company he has brought lots of tooling from, using money thats not his,  hence why he isn't at my work anymore too.

In a recent meeting, the new CEO mentioned that hes out of his depth, as a technical director,  and as a racing driver.

I figured it'd be something along those lines... Alan Gow had a bit of a rant on a live Touring car podcast, Tin Top Tuesday (well worth checking out by the way, 8pm the Tuesday after a race weekend, also on an Autoglym app you can get the back catalogue too apparently) which was editted out from the download version, its since been confirmed that Neate is now banned from any involvement in BTCC. Neate's own statement of stopping racing to focus on his son is purely an attempt to save face.

Plato has promised the Subaru will be closer to the pace at Oulton Park in a couple of weeks... and Andy Neate has seemingly proposed to a leggy blonde in Paris, with lots of jokes on Touring Car Facebook pages that he'll have to send the ring back in a couple of weeks...

Ha ha yeah that's quite funny, and prob true considering Honda are pursuing for an large amount of cash! (That's what we are hearing here)
