    I think, he will go to an existing team, where he has a good chance of winning the title.
    My bet is on Team Dynamics - alongside Cammish.

    I thought of PMR, too. But I think it's more likely, that someone like Neate will end up there to ensure the funding.

    I reckon WSR in the 3rd BeeEmm alongside Turks and Oliphant, aka the same way that AJ was entered.

    Could well be.
    But I have a feeling, the 3rd BMW seat will go to someone with a bigger budget an will be in the midfield or at the back the whole season.

    Speedworks with a couple of TBL's this year a duo of Corollas would be cool to see, those would be two great seats as well, wonder whos in the frame.

    The TBL List potentially answers a few questions too...
    - Motorbase with 4x TBL's and MB Motorsport not mentioned probably = those 2 teams merging and as Jake Hill is signed up hopefully means he'll be in a Focus with Sam Osborne in the other.
    - Dynamics with only 2 entries again, I think they really need to be a 3 car team, I don't see where they can get another TBL, Boardley "has a spare" but surely that will go to the 4th Team Hard Leon Cupra?
    - Chuffed to see Speedworks running 2 cars - experience and youth? intriguing.
    - Looks like Parker have left the building, shame....
    - But are the Dynamics FK8 Civics now the oldest cars on the grid? that's a nice modern grid!

    I'd say the PMR Astra's could be the oldest cars on the grid?

    Yes:
    Wikipedia says, MB took over Motorbase.
    They still use the name...

    Really chuffed, too - a second Toyota is really what they need to be able to get a title IMO.
    Really hope they can afford two good drivers.
    I say: Shedden is one of them. I have no evidence whatsoever

    Just the car should be the Infiniti!?
    Got new parts, so I don't know if you can really say it like this...

    So the season has been moved back 5 weeks. Good move I think but still donít think there will be any spectators this year.

    Was interesting to see Gow say Toca took a hit. So I think I was right that Toca told circuits not to bother with spectators last year and they would take the hit. Was only small numbers allowed but basically stuff the spectators itís not worth it money wise.

    Volderneate!

    It's that time of year again, the time of year we all despair as Andy Neate is confirmed in the BTCC for the coming season.

    Ollie Jackson - great to see him back in kind of the same team. He'll have his hands full with Jake Hill as a Team mate!

    Sam Osborne - Undecided as yet, he was obviously getting a seat due to his fathers investment, I was hoping that in the Civic he would improve in 2020, maybe he just had crap luck.

    Volderneate - well what can be said that hasn't been said already.

    I wonder how Dave Bartrum feels today? I know it's not his team anymore but it's his "brand" and I wonder if he feels it's been thrown under the bus by the new owners?

    I have to say, the Motorbase line up is probably the weakest on the grid thus far and such a shame for a good team.

    MB Motorsport on the other hand... 2 proven race winners and with a bit of luck, Jake could be a Championship contender.
