For f*cks sake! Have people got nothin better to say on here other than "nice hat" Let me point a few things out to you "Saddo's" As the Adventures of Stevie V once sang "money talks" End of. And i'm not being funny but if i was rich or had a dad or sister with pots of money, then i would be a paying driver too. At least then I would be living my dream. If it wasn't for the "paying drivers" the BTCC would be a tiny grid. In 2010 there were only 4 manufacturer cars on that grid. You so called fans come on here and slate these people who are getting out there and "Living their Dream" I bet you don't even get off your a**e to get to a meeting. Without them the BTCC wopuldnt be what it is today. Look at Shaun Hollamby for instance. Yes he got his own car, that he built on the grid for 2010. He wasn't the best driver on the grid or even in the fastest car. However he was voted the fans favourite for 2010. And has now been backed by the fans initiative in the shape of yourracingcar.com. And

yes he will be on the grid again for 2011. If it wasnt for the rich kids, brothers and paying drivers there would be no Hollamby, Boardman, O'Neill, George, Jordan, Jackson, Chilton, Onslow-Cole, Pinkney, Kane, Hamilton, Nash, MacDowall, Collard, Johnson, Depper, Forster, Wood & Neate. So next time you are siiting on your ripped tatty armchair getting p*ssed and living in your own squalor watching the BTCC. Just remember these so called saddo's are paying to entertain YOU!

Whatever happened to talent in the BTCC? - Fact is that a lot of the pay drivers are quick but unfortunately we live in a society where money buys you up the ladder due to economic times. The one thing that has escalated in the last 30years is the cost of running the cars and appearing at the circuits. The cars themselves have remained relatively stable whereas you now require a small army to run them and deal with the off track stuff! nice beaver!!

I Agree with Speedy bee the Grand Prix Racewear shop at Silverstone has gone right downhill since Martin Hines took it over. Bought some boots there last month and could hear shouting and screaming in the office, very proffesional indeed.
