    So turkington doesnt get sacked by WSR. Totally wrong

    Every time they havent had the funding to run him. Turkington doesnt bring a budget like collard and jordan and like past WSR drivers. Hence why his return to WSR was sealed when they became a works BMW team with X protect backing. WSRs first choice was to have him in the car.

    As for BMR i think they have financial issues. And if plato leaves they will have no money at all.

    Rumour is that WSR may be switching to the new 3 series if BMW maintain there backing. Which is up in the air

    My wishlist...
    1. Eurotech becomes the Jordan's family team again, would love to see Andrew fighting for the championship again. He's got the talent, just needs the stability and to feel like no.1 in the team.
    2. we have a few worldwide stars return to the series, none so far have faired that well in this difficult to get to grips with ngtc era.
    3. Going forward in to 2020 the calendar and race formats are completely shook up, if you'd like an example of how this can be done successfully see supercars Australia (v8sc)
    4. Turkington gets chance to defend his title in a wsr BMW, surely that's not too much to ask?
    5. Plato either retires or gets back in a decent fwd car, he's been an empty seat for too long.
    6. Speedworks and Tom ingram have the inclination and budget to try to go one better, there would be no more deserving a champ in btcc history.

    Read this morning that Turkington seems set to go WTCR with a firm offer on the table for him. Andy Priaulx is also set to join him in World Touring Cars with the rumour mill stating his contract is already signed. So with uncertainty at BMR and a plum rear wheel drive BMW going spare (as long as BMW continue with their backing of WSR) will Ash Sutton swap Japanese for German?
