Bring back Huff
That happened last year with Luke though, it was common knowledge on the motorsport forums, even before they wheeled him out, haircut and all
Someone has flappy lips obviously.
I've no idea who this person on the BTCC forum is, but they know an awful lot about what goes on in that paddock. They've predicted a few things to happen so far and they've all been correct.
There was an interesting post on the BTCCPages forum about Turner having taken part in a secret 4 driver shootout towards the end of 2005.
I saw that as well, but the Darren Turner post was by someone called btracer while the shoot out post came from someone else called outsider (or at least I presume it was someone else)
Yes btracer just took it from the btcc.net forum where it had been posted by ant1988 who seems to be very in the know.
I didn't spot the btcc.net post - ant1988 seems to be fairly exclusive to that forum (unless he posts elsewhere under a different name). Be that as it may, this rumour appears to have legs and while I think Darren is a fine driver I am personally disapointed.
It's great news, being both a Plato and Seat fan (Just wish he'd get a haircut tho)
How certain is it that Northern South will be running the cars again? The reason I ask is that Tom Walkinshaw (of TWR Volvo and Arrows GP fame, who famously went bust in 2002) has formed a new company and is set to announce plans for the BTCC at Autosport on Thursday. SEAT Sport UK's website states that they will be making big announcements on Thursday too. Now am I reading too much into this or might this be what's going to happen?
Later this week, the newly-formed Tom Walkinshaw Group (TWG) will announce two exciting projects: one in motorsport and one in the road-going automotive sector.
hmm. SEAT Sport UK, and a special edition TWG Leon Cupra for the road
Wishful thinking eh
Just to add, non of the news reports today, that ive read so far, have mentioned that he plans his involvement to be centred around the BTCC, but nor does it confirm or deny it.
According to an article on pitpass.com (called 'Lest We Forget'), it says this:
It's maybe just another ridiculous silly season case of putting two and two together and getting five, but it's a very interesting one.
Some more on the driver situation. Apparantly there was a four driver shootout held somewhere before Christmas where Darren Turner, Peter Dumbreck, Mat Jackson and Tom Boardman were tested.
On another forum it was reported that the four were: Turner, Dumbreck, Jackson and Oli Wilkinson. Tom Boardman was Not at the test
seat seem to be really going for it with the drivers they have already signed (wtcc)
and the names in the hat for the btcc seat
can't wait to find out thursday.... I wonder how early is deemed 'keen'
You are lucky - I have got to work. But I hope to go on Saturday.
The Seat sport website seems to suggest that they will be making the announcement(s) to coincide with the Talk Sport transmission on Firday.
