    Need to go check on that.
    Marshall not Birrell.

    Marshall of course, Birrell was a racing driver too single seaters was his forte, needing my dinner memory sugar levels low.

    Chilton is a good coup....

    I know a few people are disappointed not to see Dave Newsham in the team but Chilton is a good shout and quite a scalp for the team to get. I just hope he can adapt to the NGTC Cars quickly and do a good job. The team deserve a bit of success and here's hoping they see it in 2017.

    Surprised no one has brought this up yet....

    It would seem in relation to recent GM events this could potentially be a short lived return to the btcc for ' vauxhall '......?? Might soon be a return by Peugeot!
    2016, year of the Goff...

    Well, could be, yes.
    But I would wait to see what happens. A few years back, it seemed like GM would sell Opel(-Vauxhall) to Magna... but they didn't. I know it could be useful for GM to sell it, but it's their whole European market...

    Negotiations for the sale could take a long time, might not be '17 but in time for season'18?

    Negotiations could falter altogether. With a sale figure of 1.6bn and a Vauxhall workers pension fund deficit of 1bn and low productivity demand in the UK plants, it's not looking that healthy for the UK/Vauxhall side of the sale.
