    Pictures from Thruxton today (Race day)

    Been back about an hour and we are both knackered lol.

    Anyway............Here are my pictures from today:

    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    classey bit off driving today by vauxhall. good to hear that matt neal will be joining them next year.

    i think plato should have been penalised for cutting that corner . he is such a dirty driver but still the whole race was wicked and vauxhall pulled it off.


    (in your face plato lol)

    The Vauxhall driver won the championship, can't remember his name, Plato came second overall. Was very close though. Nothing wrong with Plato's driving, that's how they do it in touring cars, not like formula one when they all start crying if somebody comes to close to them. They even asked the vauxhall driver what he thought of the overtaking from Plato and he said there was nothing wrong with it.

    Giovannardi won it.

    Byron and I were in the Vauxhall VIP tent. Fantastic day, saw Clokey with vix, Hev and Stu aswell as Mel C from the Spice Girls - dont ask ! lol

    Porsches sound fantastic althought the racing was alittle dull. Clios kick ass, definately going to look for one and might even consider racing in the series next year ! lol

    cutting out a whole chicane is bad though!

    he was miles back, cut the corner, then he was behind chilton! then he started ramming everyone!

    should of had a driver through penalty!

    niceone to matt neal for fighting with him too!!

    Hardly!! Showed extremely bad sportsmanship in my opinion, he waved through the vauxhalls and then made it as hard as possible for Plato, that's despite saying before the race that he wouldn't get involved with the championship fight. Couldn't really have got more involved if he tried. Still he's meant to be going to vauxhall next season, so clearly just wanted to start off in their good books.
