It's official. The Clerk of the course at Silverstone hasn't got a spine. The BTCC drivers are ignoring instructions with regards to Copse corner and having watch the Clio's as well they're all ignoring the track and getting away with it.

What's the point of having rules if you aren't going to enforce them :? :? :?

richard - I think team orders are the least of it. When nearly all of the drivers are blatently ignoring the Clerk of the Course then there is something seriously wrong with the sport.

At silverstone now and after race two i have no doubt in my mind the dirtiest driver on the grid is rob collard his first attempt at passing onslow cole was just pure banger racing and his second smash on toc was disgustin on last lap even ginetta junior guys race better than him

swb. yes, many drivers ignoring the c of c, and in the second race, neal got past oneil by using the wide line, and again used it to try and get past plato. yet there was no penalty. collards move was forceful, but it serves aon right, for using team orders and slowing cole down and into collards clutches. poetic justice.

Richard - Sorry to disagree but 1) Team Orders are allowed. 2) Collard passed O-C illegally, as did Neal against O'Neill. 3) The rules are being blatently ignored.

I understand where you're coming from, I just disagree as it's a matter of rules not sportsmanship.

swb. accepted that team orders are allowed, but i still think that they are unfair, and not in the spirit of racing. how was collards pass on cole , illegal? a bit forceful maybe, but hardly illegal. whilst neal gained an advantage by taking the wide, and supposedly illegal, line. did it again to try and pass plato. no penalty!

richard - Agree with you about team orders, however with regards to the overtake. Officially it's a non contact sport. You only need to watch the in-car footage from Neal's Honda to see the angle that he tipped O'Neill's car into. The shame is that the stewards haven't done anything about it over the years and it has been accepteed as the norm.
