1) No bias intended but I cannot help but think SEAT will win the Manufacturers title and Jase the Drivers and DT will be second.

*1a)Ian Harrison and/or Steve Neal will probably complain at the end at SEAT having had a head-start on their teams!! :laugh:

2)TD's reign of dominance in the Independents will end with Turks and Team RAC winning the Independents crowns.

3)Though the Civic's of TD and the Vectra's of VXR will challenge well and achieve several good results and performances.

4)I think it will be between Tom Onslow Cole and Gareth Howell to be the surprise driver of the season with regard to form.

5)I think it will be between Motorbases Toledo's and West Suffolk Racing's 1-series BMW's to be the surprise teams of the season with regard to form (assuming WSR will enter. I have not heard anything of them from anyone at any time).
