Good news for them and the championship - if the Honda Civic NGTC is the best car then we need a few more to stop a Neal-Shedden shoot out for the title.

Also, jeez - that car and my ass are twins - getting far too big! The front bumper sticking out like that is pretty naff.

I wish Dynamics would go back to traditional red than the boring white. If the Honda NGTC car is as good as people think it is, it will blow everyone else away. Anyway the Team Pirtek Honda (Customer) will not be allowed to beat the Team Dynamics Honda (Works) on a normal day next year.

Next I am waiting to start hearing Plato bleating on about the unfair speed of the Hondas and he can't keep up. RML are the works Chevrolet squad, so they have the capabilty to build a NGTC car. This year the Hondas, Vauxhalls and lately NGTC Toyotas all the turbo boost presure, but the Honda has got more power out of it and it is the only car that is getting punished by having more weight and less boost. The championship, Plato seems to think is only about him and nobody else.

Good move from Pirtek. The Vectra has served them well but now it's time to move on. Team Dynamics have made some great Hondas in the past, and so I think the new Civic will take over well from the current model, and they'll essentially be getting brand new factory-spec cars at the start of the season.

Jeff Smith has done a decent job in my opinion, scoring a handful of points in his rookie season and giving the team plenty of money. Andy Jordan is the future of the BTCC, along with the likes of Nash and Wrathall, and I think the move to Honda will provide him with the opportunity to win plenty of races and maybe even mount a title challenge.
