BTCC RUNNERS AND RIDERS.........? was created by PSXCAR
If this list is to be believed (and they have been mostly right before) where does this leave Plato?
www.btcccrazy.co.uk/btcc/btcc-2015-confirmed-entries-rumours/

it seems to me someone will loose their ride or maybe a third car, BMW now needs a third driver (Collard, Foster not resigned) and Turkingson not yet settled and needs a seat, as he has not as yet commented to BMW.
My guess, as it has been for some time is ' Infinity support our paras ' with their Q50's, (my problem with them is who is funding the team?? Infinity are not going to give full financing backing and SOP.org. are a charity and has to watch the budget even harder, so does this mean Tesco is nailed on as the trump card, along with Mr. Plato.) I know they have put on record the driver line up but it would seem a perfect fit for Plato at this time and Tesco ( his main sponsor ) would love the publicity this team would give them, along with plenty of sponsor cash.
the problem may be branding with all three 'big' names ( Tesco. Infinity and paras ) vying for the same piece of vehicle for maximum effect , but would, I think, suit Plato's ego, new team, being top dog, the lure of a prestige marque with Infinity and ofcourse, in Plato's case, all that publicity. Nothing against him, I genuinely like him, and he has served MG very well, but as he said himself 'motorsport is his lively hood, and he has to treat it as a business like any other'.
But if not there where? ............WTCC or endurance racing?, GT or even the Le Mans series
What do you think......................................

Tbh Roy I'm quietly excited that Turkington may sign on the Triple Eight dotted line :cheer: What an awesome team that would make and more hope than ever of winning the drivers championship. Something will happen in the next week or so I'm sure! Turkington needs to get a seat soon and MG is not new to him ;) Fingers crossed.

I suppose there's still a slim chance it could be Plato but my guess is turkington.

Totally agree with both of you. An 'advanced' version of the preamble before those electric racing cars actually start going round the track only worse. I just switched it off.

Part 2 was no better, even the 7 minute BTCC segment was a complete disaster, with all four just acting like kids, no wonder Plato gave it a wide birth, I too ran the show at x30. Andy Priaulx looked bemused and lost didn't seem to know what's going on with the team, seemed to me that he was told by BMW this was his only choice of championship left !!!!!!!, ( no WTCC,DTM, V8 Supercars, Endurance or even GT available to him. one last chance tonight with the short event show, but don't hold your breath ...................... :evil:
