Who's gonna be Champion then?
Three BTCC events gone, who's going to win it this year?
I'm gonna go Shedden, seems really fired up and was an absolute man on a mission at both Donington and Thruxton although I'd rather see a non works driver win it.
If you guess right you win my respect and a pat on the back... from yourself.Please ignore ALL of the above....

Shedden. Failing that, Plato, but I think the Honda has the edge on the MG.

I'll go for Plato then Sheddon. Plato seems to be taking points this year where in the past he would have lost them being over-aggressive.
Jackson will win the independents but will put up a good fight for the overall honours.Blasphemy is a victimless crime

Shedden, from what I've seen, he is fast and consistent.Formula 1

It's difficult to pick between Shedden and Plato. Both have able cars with different characteristics. Both drivers have shown major signs of aggressive driving and stellar overtaking moves but, at the same time, have shown to be able to settle and keep cool to collect points. In the latter area, Shedden seems to have the edge as Plato does get fired up. If it goes down to the wire, I think Shedden will take it though I'm not counting out Mat Jackson as an outside contender if the car comes to him in the second half of the season.Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam

I would really, really love to say Matt Neal, but his first 3 rounds have been a bit sloppy compared to last year. The way he only has won once so far feels like 2007 again. I don't think it is his to lose this year.
Shedden, on the other hand, is really looking forward to finally taking his first title, and came close to in 2010, and even closer in 2011. 2012 is his year, and so far, it is showing. Without the disqualification (he was 4th before), he would be in the lead of the championship at the moment. His 2nd-3rd race wins are also quite impressive, with Thruxton topping as the most impressive.1990 BTCC-CHAMPION w/ 207 points and 9 race wins
