Honda Racing were running their boost lower than anyone else at Brands and Donington and they still had a car faster than anyone else! So if they hadn't played games by pegging back their own car they wouldn't be in the position they are in now! remember last year? They were both on the front row for qualifying as they had the fastest cars then too! However they both F*cked it up by running with too much camber and had to pit with punctures! I don't believe anything they say about their cars anymore as they always contradict themselves! At least Plato say's it how it is! UNFAIR! But a good call from Alan Gow to do something about it!

Just as expected the Honda's Qualified 1st and 3rd! Matt Neal is one hell of a driver if he can do that with one hand tied behind his back! We now know it was definately the right call to peg back the Turbo's to level out the playing field. There is still only on Super 2000 car in the top ten! And to the 3 who disagreed with my last comment it's there for all to see now in black and white! They still have the BEST car!

Jason Plato won the first 2 races of the season - in fact he ran away with them. Matt Neal has won 2 and Jordan and Jackson have one each so hardly a Honda whitewash then is it?

It's not just about winning races Jenny. Yes Plato won round 1 & 2 but where was Neal? In the gravel! But what car has qualified on pole for all three rounds so far? The Honda Civic. The fastest car on track at the moment. And Plato only ran away with the wins due to the poor restarts of the 2nd place man after the safety cars. When Neal or Shedden are in front they are untouchable unless they make a mistake or are punted off the circuit. I will bet a weeks wages that providing they get off the line well and dont suffer a puncture they will take an easy win! Check out the average lap speed from the qualifying times and you will find they are 10mph faster than they were in qualifying 2010.
