    Qualifying today was awesome, watching 30 cars on that tiny circuit it was a little busy :O_o:. With the top 16 separated by 1/2 a second the racing is going to be tight!

    Some fantastic racing in every race, even the support races. The last Clio race was awesome :) And that drive by Plato :D

    I missed the first race but Colin Turkington had a fantastic second race.
    The Clio's were great very close racing. Great day out for a spectator pity I live in Ireland:(

    It's great value for money at about £25 a ticket but it's the travel and accommodation that does the damage :rolleyes: Was planning on going with my dad to Brands Hatch last October but it was about £200 for flights alone :O_o:

    Is Brands really as close to London as I found out?

    Depends where in London. I live in South London (Croydon.) Takes about 40 minutes in the car if I leave before 9am on a Sunday morning.

  19. A lot of people on Twitter questioning Shedden's move on Turkington but I don't see what he could've done; in fact, it looked to me like Turkington out-braked himself and nudge Shedden and himself wide.

    Exactly what happened, if Turkington took the corner as normal and Shedden cut across then it would be obvious, but Turkington went off the track and took Shedden with him.

    Just a bunch of sad fanboys.

    Was a brilliant finish, dont know why people cant just accept that.
