    I dont think he has many more accidents than any other btcc driver, but he will be plugging around at the back of the field unless there has been a massive change.

    I do think the accident tally for all drivers would make interesting reading over the course of the season, will look forward to the results

    I agree, but the success of a driver isn't about the results - it's about getting on the grid in the first place. Most of these drivers I see as businessmen doing their business whether that's generating sponsorship/income for their drive or paying their own way to be on the grid. Businesswise, the better a driver is the more money he or she makes through bonuses from the team and/or their sponsors or whether they can generate more sponsorship than it costs for them to drive for the season.

    Livery looks nice. The best of luck to him, and the fresh sponsor he's brought to the championship.

    Blundell raced in the Mini Challenge JCW 2017, qualified 13, managed to finish only one of the races in 12, crashed out of the others.

    So top BTCC journo Matt Salisbury tweeted yesterday that while the Mark Blundell news was surprising...

    '...It might just be that the most surprising story - and one of the biggest of the winter - is still to come.... #BTCC'

    Now that's intriguing

    Where did i mention his disability ? My comments had absolutely nothing to do with that whatsoever.
    What your saying is I`m not allowed to voice my opinion just because he has a disability ?
    I think that car would be a hell of a lot further up the grid in a better drivers hands, its a waste, simple as.

    Read something online today from a supposed good source (I have no idea whether the person claiming this is genuine/reliable or not and they claim their source, if they exist, are usually reliable) that PMR’s driver line-up for 2019 is the Uber-experienced pairing of Plato and Collard.....

    I have to say personally I would be surprised by that. After his injury etc last year I had a feeling we wouldn't see Collard again. And also that would mean potentially no Josh Cook or Senna Proctor which wouldn't be good IMHO

    Feels so unlikely, but cant rule anything out at this point!

    I'll be glad to see Collard racing again.

    I'd heard via the pit lane that Cook had upset PMR big time and they would NOT run him again.

    You may well be correct as Cook just announced at BTC Racing. Paving the way for Plato at PMR..

    Cook never was going to be part of PMR this Season so he hasn't "paved the way" for anyone
