    :bowdown:YES! Renault had to be in it. The brand sells very well here. I've got two favourites now. Too excited! I'll be there for the race. No doubt GRM shirts will be bought. :D

    As a side, I asked Chad Naylon about why Matt White was wearing a Renault cap at Adelaide. I figured there may be announcement with ties to Nissan and joining TCR with the Megane.
    Got no response. All good now.

    Having owned a Megane, this is Awesome news.

    Pleased for Jack, but spare a thought for Mike Bushell - allegedly let down by sponsor(s) when the time came to pay the bill...

    Hopefully he can win the final Clio Cup title by way of consolation.

    Edit - anyone else going to Brands on Wednesday?

    Yup, can't manage the opener this year so a mid-week freebie seems like a good idea.

    Saw this today, great news for Jack, would be a shame for his talent to go amiss from the grid. Though it sucks for Bushell, bit of a bummer to be let down by sponsors this late on, but no doubt we'll see him in Clio's challenging that title for a another chance in the BTCC next year perhaps.

    Guess what liveries I'll attempt on my Gr.4 M4. ;):D
    I love it. It's right next to some of my favorite modern F-series BMWs:

    Guess I'm most happy it's a proper 3-box touring car.

    To be fair, I quite like the BMW 3 Series Touring Cars as well. Both this and the 320si look like they belong and are decent cars.

    Seeing this, real real shame the Q50 was scrapped.

    Somebody posted a video of them testing it at Knockhill though. I think it could race somewhere. Probably not the BTCC.

    Edit: It is racing in the Touring Car Trophy with Laser Tools Racing.

    Ah, it's a feeder series. That's cool. Say! On that note, I saw the 2019 A45 with a Laser livery. That one looks pretty good.

    Fantastic news. Can't wait for next month. I'm buying all teams' shirts. Going to be an expensive weekend.

    Mazda need to cash in.. err, I mean get in on this! :D

    Edit: Oh yeah, wonder if that's the seat(Subaru) Molly Taylor is trying to get.

    I'd live to see him in the Alfa at GRM. Provided, the Boost guy isn't sponsoring.

    Why does the FIA insist on racing in Marrakech?

    WTCR dull race 1.

    Not a fan of the road going Fluence, but looks cool as a race car
