There were two or three sets of people at the meeting i didn't recognise but none were introduced so can't give any names. I think were looking at 27/28 trucks again this season so taking account of teams not returning that sounds about right (i heard 5 rookies were at the test).
Paul Poulter is trying to sort a drive in the USA but doesn't think he will go until later in the year so should at least start the season.
Didn't see Simon there and no appologies from him so not sure on that one and appologies were sent from Stanty but rumours are he's looking at SCSA but again haven't spoken to him so maybe they are just rumours, i know he reads the forum so perhaps he might comment.
Not much news on the pickup side of things lately, there were one or two interesting things discussed at the meeting that might be of interest but i'm not to sure of the confidentiallity of them i'll try and find out and if it's O/K i'll be posting them on the forum.......HTH.

Simon Carr wasnt there at the meeting because i think that i heard that he is taking a year out to try to goto the USA aswell but i might be wrong about that hope to see him out soon though. They have lost Robert Butterfeild due to an bad accident at work, he was at the meeting and might be racing later in the year .

Sorry to hear about Rob Butterfield - he was really coming on strong during last season and was becoming a regular front runner. I hope he'll get a run out sometime this season.

Always been a bit of a Simon Carr fan too - hopefully he too will be out at some point during the year.
