    Yes I do.

    Not the worst I've seen in that time. The accident at this year's Goodwood Members' Meeting, where a car ended up in the (thankfully empty) spectator tunnel, was just as frightening.

    Indeed. As for what those changes should be, if it's not deemed a suitable site for a camera stand, I'd say that area ought not to contain any spectators either, unless a tall fence is put in.

    Goodness me. Can't help but feel that Snetterton needs to make some safety-related changes along the pit straight after today. Not just Hunter Abbott's frightening accident, but also the then leader...

    Yes, it's unnecessary. A shame, as I'm otherwise enjoying the BTCC this year more than I have for a very long time. A terrific field and largely clean racing.

    However, whether Thruxton, after the...

    Exactly — and that bone-headed sections of the electorate are perfectly happy in being complicit in doing so, without any thought as to the wider consequences. Yes, that does mean the likes of some...

    Again, just because that's what you do doesn't mean that others are the same, you know. Millions of people consider the notion of a public service broadcaster deeply valuable. It would be even more...

    Politically naive, as ever. And your view typifies one of the most tiresome heard in any situation like this: "why should the BBC pay X for Y that I personally don't like?" Because others do,...

    There's no question in this instance of the government helping F1. This is about the BBC.



    It is one problem. Viewers walking away from it is another. But this wouldn't be happening without the...

    Well, the relationship between New Labour and Murdoch was undoubtedly unhealthy as well. But it is surely obvious that, unlike then, we now have in power a government ideologically opposed in its...

    If any of you UK viewers voted Conservative either in 2010 or this year, you might like to consider that you're partly to blame. It's purely because the BBC is under ideological pressure to cut costs...

    Indeed. I would have thought this to be a case where the terms of the TBL system ought to end up with the team out on its ear.

    No surprise after recent events that Infiniti have withdrawn their factory support for the BTCC team. What an utter, unmitigated farce. I've no idea why they got involved in the first place — for a...

    Not just for F1, but all the FIA world championships. Drastic cost-cutting is needed across the board if they are not to stagnate completely.

    Goodness, race three was dramatic. Shame Neal was up to his old tricks when he passed Jordan. I wonder whether the stewards will take action. What Aron Smith was doing trying to get across Josh...

    BTCC 2015 Rounds 4-6: Donington Park

    Time, belatedly, to start a thread for today's BTCC races. Good race one, I thought — some very clean battling in places, even if the field became rather strung out. Plato looked to be in a class of...

    I do agree. Indeed, the BTCC is the only racing series in which I can get interested these days, for exactly that reason. The racing is good and the driver line-up of a high quality. Even so, I don't...

    I was thinking exactly the same thing. This year's rules mean there is a fine line between the benefits of winning and not winning. Collard's day yesterday showed that.
