Default BTCC 2009 - News & Rumors Roundup Thread

I hope I'm not the only BTCC fan here...

There have been some interesting developments during the off-season:
  • Jason Plato is currently in limbo. He has stated that he is ruling out a switch to the WTCC.
  • Arena Motorsports will begin fielding two Focus STs. Tempus Sport will field a set of Chevy Lacettis.
  • Matt Jackson has lost his primary sponsor.
  • Andrew Jordan moves to the Vauxhall factory team along side Giovanardi and Neal.

I'm pumped to see what Andrew will be able to do in a Vectra.

... although I'm going to miss seeing those pretty Integras on the grid.

Your not the only fan.

Mat has said that he will still be racing even with the sponsor pulling out. I hadn't heard about the two Focus's being raced, more cars the better.

Go Chilton!

I just can't really get excited about it. Drivers just crashing into each other all the time isn't as exciting as it used to be. I'll still watch it on ITV, but its hard when its a full day thing, and I don't have a favorite driver either.

I was pretty into it but the last season I followed was 2007 IIRC. It did seem to get a bit silly, with people being shunted off at critical points in the race. Maybe I'll try again this year, assuming SPEED shows it.
