    Wonder why he's done that? Superstition?

    I'm curious as to who SSUK driver number three is. Yvan Muller doing guest appearances? ;) :p

    m0rk just texted me, he's spoke to Scott. Who said "Its to keep our options open"

    Appears they are registering an extra car just in case. ;)

    So does "just in case" mean it ain't certain?

    I would love it to be a full-time drive with Rickard Rydell racing. We know he is out at SEAT. Not enough funding. But would he have to fork out the same cash to race for SEAT (BTCC) as SEAT (WTCC)?

    Just means that if the opportunity arises, and is needed then they could run 3 cars without penalty

    they might fill the seat, they might not.

    Has Rydell signed elsewhere. I'm not sure he has. To be honest, if BTCC team need help, they could bring one of the WTCC guys over. Tarquini, Muller and GR's O'Brien all have UK experience.

    I suspect that wont happen. SEAT have the title to loose.

    (888, TD and WSR with new cars)

    If that did happen I would think it would be Yvan as he will know the tracks better

    Someone has posted on the BTCC.net forum that Seat is considering pulling out from the WTCC because they are a bit pissed off, and thats what the 3rd entry is for ?

    I would assume that would mean an immediate withdrawal from the WTCC?

    I've got some of the SEAT's, but they weren't out as much as some (up until the point I left)

    Interesting WTCC theory, but I'm not so sure - after all sponsors will have signed up for 2007
    I'd sooner hope they fix the WTCC concept

    I don't know what it says on the btcc.net forum but according to touringcartimes.com Jamie Puig complained that the Leon is the heaviest and worst aerodynamics package in the series and that the 15kilo penalty for RWD cars is unfair.

    But yesterday on the site Jordi Gene disagreed on Autosport:
    For now I am considering it unlikely they will leave the WTCC and that any third entry in the BTCC is due to a withdrawl.
