Jason why didnt you point this out when you ran the seat turbo several years ago???? Because you took the pee and walked all over the rest of the class. Funny in race 3 from 2nd place you won over these much faster cars. BTCC should be named JPTC and run under your rules and keep just you happy!!!!!!

Timeline:
New rules announced.

Honda develop a turbo car.
Vauxhall develop a turbo car.
Silverline keep fiddling with their rebadged Daewoo

Sorry Jason, but the blame is with your team. Maybe you should spend more time bitching about the rubbish job they have done in developing a turbo car for you.

I didn't know VAUXHALL had developed a turbo car? where is it? As for Plato's comments I'm glad he has said what he said, It will only fuel the fire for another slanging match between him and Tw*t Neal. Oh sorry Matt Neal.

Its getting old now , you could have had a turbo Jason , dont the Chevys in WTC run them ? so that leaves chevys and BMW without them , BMW are leaving and going to DTM so no need to develop a turbo engine, that leave Chevy,,,, so should all other teams bow to your wishes and lower boost ? or should it be Chevy that follow all others and stick a turbo on your engine??

Honestly Jason you can't have it all your own way so get with the program man.

You cant change a whole series because 4 cars don't want to run a turbo

swissy yes chevvys have turbos but are 1.6 litre turbos the btcc use 2.0 litre i think and its a homologated turbo engine not built by each team so i think rml would have to use the btcc engine not the wtcc engines diffrent rules i love btcc but its clear the turbos are miles ahead on the straights so what was always close racing is not happening now it will end up like wtcc nothing changes really from start to finish so boring btcc should have just 1 engine rule turbo or non turbo thats is the only way it will be fair.

Like the entire Honda team have managed to work the internet. Where else but Honda are you going to find 10 people like those above who don't care about actual racing?

Seriously more people than have ever posted on the BTCC boards in one go? Pathetic.
