    I was worried it was just gonna be Vauxhall for a while there.
    It seems though like they are the only 'production' team so to speak.

    Yeah, the only, and this is very small, but the only single complaint I would have about how the BTCC is run is that all the news we get from it are things to do with teams, etc.

    There are no places run by the BTCC that we can find where things are there for us, without having to do research and put the pieces together ourselves, if that makes sense.

    The only place I could find the confirmed entry list for 2009 is on the BTCC forums, and we are always left in the dark about things like championship changes etc, such as whether they plan on changing the points systems for the independant's championship, or whether we will still have a manufacturers' championship...

    Now that's interesting, because the BMW's are RWD, compared with the rest being FWD, they have a natural advantage, but I'm not sure if they still have to run the 5-speed H-box, instead of the 6-speed sequentials in the rest of the field.

    Three or four updated.

    There we go then, it's looking like a full grid of 26 cars, the most in years.

    There could be more before Friday and the season opener!
