I have been a fan of the BTCC for a long time, I used to go to the races a lot when I was younger and I was a big fan of Rydell and his Volvo S40. These days, living in Spain, I can't go to the races but I now support Matt Neal, used to see him racing in his Team Dynamics Nissan Primera and even got to sit in his car back in the day. Below are some videos to wet your appetite Smiley Very Happy

Re: British Touring Car Thread

Interesting how the only car there this season that has to be tuned down to meet regulations is the VXR.

Re: British Touring Car Thread

I think it'll be between the usual 3 suspects (Plato, Neal, Shedden). But for some reason I can see Matt Jackson having a really good season, he always seems to be a bit unlucky

Re: British Touring Car Thread

A great qualifying session at Brands Hatch. With not even 2 laps complete there was an incident invlolving 4 cars causing a red flag, on the qualifying restart there were more spins than a waltzer.
