The closest move I can remember was Priaulx in race 2, and that was more a case of bashing door handles (the way it should be).
    Yes, it's much better these days. Priaulx and Turkington in particular set an excellent example.

    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 think it's inappropriate to criticise certain elements.

    Well, quite. I may have been rather harsh.

    Completely missed round one this year. Hope to get on track (pun intended) and catch Round 2.

    I agree with those saying all the jumbling of grids is wrong.

    In any category I believe it should always be fastest driver on pole and then fastest in race wins.

    Many might think thats wrong or boring, but its motorsport. Not motor "show"
    Its not crashing it's drifting with style
