What is it with Paul O'Neill going into fits about moves you will see multiple times a day on a club package at Snett? He needs to get out more.

Yes I agree, really good footage. But does show how quiet it is there spectator wise. Lots of gaps in between the crowd by the looks of things.

Good drive by Bobby T and even managed to sneak a very subtle dig at his previous team in the post race interview. Wouldn’t be suprised to see him winning races very very soon.

Not a big fan of the amount of damage caused to Faircloughs car by the advertising banner. They should not be solid enough to cause damage, if that wing had come off when he rejoined it could have been nasty.

Good old British weather, innit.
Feel like BTCC is a bit NASCAR-like this year, isn't it?
The amount of water doesn't give a lot of hope - thankfully, it's not raining anymore.

Seems like the race will happen within 15 minutes.

Anyway, lots of people out on wets but that is not a wet track. This is going to be a messy result

Ignore that. It’s wetter than it looked on the grid shot

So with the hybrid penalty, crazy weather and a 10 second penalty, we still have a repeat winner!

Guess it’ll be Cook and Moffat for R3 honours if they’re on the softs.

16 seconds is a huge amount to win a race by. Not just saying it because I’m not a fan but that seems suspiciously fast.

So I think there’s still a bit of interpretation around the tyre rules

Jake Hill has just told Steve Rider he will start race 3 on the mediums as he went to the grid on hards for race 2. (Before changing to wets on the grid) I wonder if WSR have just found a loophole.

Jake is incorrect.

"For the avoidance of doubt, a driver is deemed to have used their allocation of 'option' tyres as soon as the car has left the pit-lane. Tyre type may not be changed on the grid, with the exception of adverse weather conditions which may require changing to 'grooved' tyres on the grid. If a driver cannot use the set of 'option' tyres in the race he declared purely due to adverse weather conditions, the driver must use that set of 'option' tyres in the next possible race at that same event."

I heard that as well. Surely it's the tyre you start the race on that counts?

Not really.
Civil Aviation Authority rules say you can't fly a drone anywhere near spectators, so it is deliberately flying in places where spectators are not allowed.

So if Huff wins, will he get dropped back because of the Cook pass?

Huff has blown it. He was so much faster than Moffat and Cook but there is no way his pass on Cook will stand so by not giving the place back he can’t win.

Cook was understeering into Huff. It was just avoiding action. He was already on the inside line for the next corner so he would have been in front anyway. All drivers seem happy.

Agree, be ridiculous if he was penalised for avoiding a collision…

Chilton did the exact same thing on Doble in race two, I don't know if he got a penalty. Can anyone confirm?
