Infiniti Q50 driver wins BTCC championship

Nothing to do with the racing but I must admit not being able to consider the Infiniti range when looking for a new set of wheels has really disappointed me.

Champagne R35 GT-R MY15 Premium 45th Anniversary Edition - "The Expensive Mistress"
Vermilion Red R35 GT-R MY14 with Recaros - "The Car with No Name"

Thanks for putting the result in the title John 🤬 Sadly, some of us hadn't watched it live and didn't know the result (for those that don't know, there is also the ability to put a a 'spoiler' setting on to hide text for those that may not have seen results of races but wish to discuss it with those that have)

Having now watched it anyway, it was a great drive by Ash and showed a lot more maturity in his driving. A shame Colin Turkington didn't have a better car to make it more of a battle but it was another great days racing.

On another note - great to see another young talented British driver in the Porsche Carrera Cup - namely Harry King. Hopefully good things to come from that young man.

Does anyone know what happened to Jordon this year - I know he lost his main sponsor at the end of last season and the same sponsor his Dad had on all his cars - but I have not seen him in any formula's - seems strange a champion who was still putting in the results would just disappear.

I remember ITV interviewing him earlier in the year Les and I think he said it was down to the pandemic. Due to the lockdown and the contracted season, I think it was a 'mutual' decision not to race. There doesn't seem to be any clear reason though so maybe an internal spat?

I have a feeling it was the Pandemic that did it for Jason Potato too. He decided to focus on 2021 as he and the Powermax team put it.

Thanks - I thought it was strange when I didn't see him of the grid.  I see Cain'y once in a while.  I have a lot of time for Jordon, his dad was a great guy and I remember Andrew cycling around the TVR paddock at the age of 6 or 7.    I have hardly seen a race this year to be honest.   Amazing though the car that won it.

There's been some epic races as usual in the BTCC this year Les. I'd persoanlly like to see Tom Ingram win one and the Corolla has come on strong this year so you never know for 2021.

The same can be said for the supporting races, as mentioned I've loved watching Harry King in the Porsche Cup, he was head and shoulders above the rest and teh new Mini's that replaced the Clio Cup have been brilliant. And the Ginetta's are always guaranteed o give you a good race (particularly the juniors!).
