    Not really. The rain, which wasn't particularly heavy in the first place, had stopped and there was no sign of any worse weather approaching, and if that changed in 15 minutes time, well it doesn't...

    The championship and the circuits will disagree massively.
    Date equity is really important when you are marketing big events, and shaking-up the calendar would be a costly backwards step.

    Or because Donington more than doubled its prices last year, and covered the circuit in Superbikes signage the day before Media Day.

    No.
    This relates to Warren Scott personally. The team is unaffected.

    I'm not convinced Duo has pulled out of all motorsport.
    They were sponsoring the Autosport Awards less than two weeks ago, and I am told there will still be a Duo-sponsored car in the BTCC in 2019.

    I don't think there was any danger of the dealer network being interested, given that the build of the Giulietta started six months after AR's boss said that the Giulietta and MiTo were being...

    "but will not be required to nominate which" means that they will probably all be running the same compounds in each race. With typical Snetterton weather, I'd expect nearly everyone on softs in race...

    You can watch all the BTCC races (and support races) live or on demand online too.

    The difference is audience. BTCC on ITV4 gets around 750,000 viewers live, and another 250,000 across three...

    Well it couldn't really have any fewer. But it's just a club championship, despite its grandiose ambitions. Its season finale this year had 11 cars and barely more spectators.

    Also, ticket revenue goes to the circuits not to Gow or TOCA, so he doesn't have any financial interest in whether the title race is already over.

    He's joint fourth in the drivers' championship, with a string of top 5 finishes. Only Sutton and Morgan have won more races. Anyone who thinks he is not a front runner needs their head examined.

    They probably were "as bad". The major difference being that when Ash's engine went bang, the team had a spare. When Plato's went bang, the spare was already in Ash's car.

    How is this Goff's third consecutive Brands pole? He was on pole in October, but Jeff Smith was polesitter the last time before that.
