17 confirmed entries by early Janaury is pretty good going, especially when you consider there are at least two MGs, two Fords, and a Proton to add to that list when they are formally announced.

It is good going. Very pleased to see the two Audis confirmed. I think Rob Austin is a very decent BTCC pedaller.

Quick question AlfaFan. Why do you have TWO WSR BMW's??

Was it not said when the announcement was made that WSR would certainly be running two cars, if not three?

Alfa Fan
10th January 2013, 23:48
Because the official story says "driver line-up". One driver isn't really a "line-up". Pedantically, it should only list one I suppose based on what's in the press release. Collaborated with their website WSR Racing (http://www.wsr-racing.com/pages/news.asp?article=257) "WSR are designing and building new BMW 125i cars" and the fact Dick is quoted as saying two or three cars in Autosport, it's safe to assume there will be two minimum.

PDS
11th January 2013, 00:01
It's just that they ran three cars last season and they are having three new cars built.

I just thought you could add another one to you list as there is no reason to say there won't be three?????

Yeah thats why I said on the list by March and not on the list by now... And also surely ES Racing aren't that unlikely?

Great news about Turkington, I think WSR really do have a formidable driver lineup this season with Nick Foster also being one of the best of the "Amateur" drivers around...

Strong line-up for WSR, and I'm very happy to see Turkington make a return. Hopefully the new car will be competitive straight away.

And, hopefully all three drivers will get a decent amount of time in it pre-season.

Nick Foster probably won't get as much, in previous years his running pre-season has been restricted by business commitments.

So that is 26 announced entries according to btcc.net with three days to go until championship registrations close.

The deadline for registrations was Friday the 22nd. The drivers and teams will be informed by March 8th if they've been accepted. Anything after March 8th may incur a 20% increase on the entry fee. Which explains why you always get the odd TBA popping up. Better to pay your 17k+VAT and register for entry now, then search for a driver in the time between late Feb and the start of April, rather than pay extra. If you're that confident of getting a driver anyway!

So that is 26 announced entries according to btcc.net with three days to go until championship registrations close.

I wonder whether the Golf and Astra ought to count as one entry, given that the Astra is expected to take over from the Golf at some point, with another driver taking over the latter if the team can find one?

That is an oversight actually, yes. Should only be 25 announced entries as I really can't see AMD running the Golf alongside the Astra.

Which leaves just 6 possible slots left to be revealed (on the assumption all those listed did actually place entries, not ALWAYS the case). So 26 cars currently, at least a further two entries who are very likely to be there, doesn't leave much room for anyone else.

Don't forget Motorbase have registered a fourth Focus as a TBA.

It has not been mentioned on btcc.net yet, but it has been registered.

I'm sure we'll see on Thursday :)

Forgive me for my scepticism when it comes to cars that "will appear at some point" in the season. Hence why I also have doubts as to whether we'll actually see anything from Stockton.

If everyone's entered whose said they are entering then it will be oversubscribed. I don't believe that will be the case.

Given your connections to Motorbase though, I have absolutely no doubt that if you say that is the case, it is!

Well, that car is definitely in build. I take it Joe Girling's S2000 Cruze will have the TOCA engine in it?

It's a Neil Brown-tuned GM engine. That's why they didn't appear at the end of last season like they intended, as they were missing parts and didn't want to go down the TOCA route.

As for Stockton, I'm not hopeful on anything soon. The team transporter is being used to deliver furniture and the car hasn't been assembled due to not having the funds to complete the build and also race it. According to Stockton's Twitter account.

I think we'll be quite glad of the S2000 class being there if there are problems getting these NGTC newbuilds on the grid.

Thanks for that, Iain. Wasn't aware of those things. A shame for Stockton — that car ought, I think, to be competitive given suitable funding.

Not sure there will be that many NGTC non-appearances, but what price an S2000 car getting an overall top-10 finish in one of the Brands races?

Lea Wood confirmed for the Jack Sears Trophy in his S2000 Vectra:

BTCC :: Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (http://www.btcc.net/html/generalnews_detail.php?id=3348)

He's my favourite for the Jack Sears title, without a doubt.

Meanwhile, IP Tech confirm they'll miss the first meeting, but are entering two cars, with the second appearing part-way through the season:

With Wood and the second IP Tech Cruze confirmed as entries, it's 31 now if one includes Stockton; without him it's 30, with the fourth Motorbase car and Dan Welch making up the 'maximum' 32 if, as predicted, they're confirmed.

Terrible news about Wood only running the Vectra again. Waste of time really as he'll wipe the floor in that class.

And Neate missing the first round? That's pretty embarrassing. After all the hype about such a professional outfit they were setting up, etc, etc, to then not even be ready is pretty bad.

Yes, it's a shame he's not in an NGTC car, as he's a very good driver deserving of better equipment. But I'm glad he's still in the series.

I don't think that's very fair. Don't forget, Neate only announced in January that the team was being set up, and the car has been built from scratch. It can still be a professional outfit even though the car won't be out for the first meeting.

Why decide so late? It's pretty clear Neate's chequebook is unlimited. Just doesn't add up to me. Its like Dave Pinkney, splashed his cash about but never took it seriously enough.

He's not receiving the final delivery of parts until next Thursday, so would be going into FP1 at Brands without any running, probably not even a shakedown. Makes sense when you look at it that way. Whether they dithered over ordering parts or the suppliers can't meet the demand, who knows.

The new build Alfas were all him in 07. What I'm disliking about what seems to be happening is its oh so predictable. New cars not showing up and missing rounds... same old story. I'm bored of teams talking-the-talk about how professional and amazing they are going to be, and then not being at the first round.

Entry list now up on the official site.

BTCC :: Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (http://www.btcc.net/html/drivers.php)

Main points of note: Michael Caine confirmed in the third Motorbase NGTC Focus from Donington; as expected, Dan Welch confirmed in the Proton: Stockton has entered in the BTC Racing Cruze, to take part 'from Snetterton'; Ollie Jackson in the second Speedworks Toyota; and no second AmD entry.

I'm going to be very disappointed if it turns out that these later season entries have kept anyone off the grid who could have started the season.

Nice discussion , in according to me all drivers will get a decent amount of time in it Pre season.So i hope the new car will be competitive straight away.
