2 Wins out of 3 for Dan Cammish in the 2023 BTCC season-opener and a wet Race 2 sees Tom Chilton score his first win since 2019.

The real star of Race 2 has got to be Nic Hamilton though, finishing in P6, could have been even better if he hadn't run wide a couple of times but still!

It was great to see Nic Hamilton score in BTCC for only the second time in his career. And great to see him as high as 4th. And his brother was in attendance to see him get his best result ever to date. (His parents were seen in the pitlane on TV).

Bit gutted he didn't manage to stay in 4th as he could have scored a podium when Ronan Pearson was excluded (Gutted for him too) but a great performance just the same!

The current rules on track limits in the British Touring Car Championship have got to be among the most farcical rules of recent times, given what happened to Ricky Collard today in Race 3 at Brands Hatch, the fact he didn't receive any warning whatsoever until after he'd crossed the finish line makes it even more rejectful.

Will Powell out of One Motorsport, Jade Edwards returns in his place, Daryl DeLeon becomes the BTCC's first Filipino driver as he replaces Edwards at Team HARD.

Shame to lose Hamilton just before Knockhill but it was great to have Rob Huff back.

Ashley Sutton now has 8 Wins in 2023 with 9 races still to go. Could he equal Alain Menu's record of 12 Wins in 1997?

Gutted for Dan Lloyd, just half a lap away from scoring the first win for the Cupra at Donington Park in the reverse-grid race, but happy for Rory Butcher finally breaking his and Speedworks' 2023 duck.

Mikey Doble on pole for Race 1 at Silverstone.

Jake Hill wins Race 1 from Dan Rowbottom and Andrew Watson, Mikey Doble recovers to 11th after mistakenly doing an extra warm-up lap and having to start from the back, Daryl DeLeon scores his first points in 14th.

Sam Osborne notably running his Focus in the colours of the Valvoline Mondeo of 1995 and 1996.

Sutton wins Race 2 from 23rd on the grid with Aron Taylor-Smith 2nd and Tom Ingram. Ash now has 10 Wins to his name in 2023, the best since Fabrizio Giovanardi in 2007.

Colin Turkington wins Race 3 and takes BMW's 150th British Touring Car Championship win!

The title battle is now down to just Sutton and Tingram but with Sutton 45 points ahead, he has one hand on title #4 already.

This could end up being Hondas 1st winless season since 1995. (Excluding 2001 when Honda took a year out and Simon Graves came 1st on the road in his Production Class Honda on 3 occasions)

It's looking very Ash Sutton isn't it. Shame about Honda too.

Not quite.

They're still with us but they'll only run two Cupras in 2024.

Make that one for now with Daryl DeLeon driving.

Also WSR downsizing to three cars and PMR to two after Jade Edwards fails to raise the funds to drive for the latter.

Means the 2024 BTCC kicks off this weekend with the lowest number of entries since before the start of the NGTC era.

After two meetings, every driver competing in the 2024 British Touring Car Championship has scored points.

This hasn't happened since 2005 when only the top 10 finishers were awarded points.

Also, Ash Sutton has been on the podium in every race so far but hasn't won any yet.

Also, every nation in the United Kingdom represented on the 2024 BTCC grid has won 2 races each.

2 Wins for Jake Hill at Snetterton despite also receiving a 10 second penalty in Race 2 for the same offence as Bobby T.

Rob Huff leads Toyota 1-2-3 from Moffat and Cook in Race 3.

That was hilarious.

"Sponsor us, we can help increase your sales."
"No, not that much please, now we can't fulfil all our new incoming sales. We're going to cancel the sponsorship deal."
"Dammit. We're too good."

Well, that's what it felt like.

Bummer for Bobby T. Hopefully he will back before the end of the season.
