    so at the end of the year SEAt will leave the BTCC championship, personally I feel its a massive blow to the sport, hopefully Plato will get another driver next year, I wish more manufactures would join and make it like the mid 90's was.

    Agreed, that's pretty grim news.

    I remember the first season or two the A4s were tearing around the BTCC circuits. I've still got memorabilia signed by Frank Biela and John Bintcliffe somewhere! ...It was just a shame when they started loading them up with ballast just because they were better though :s

    Lets hope as you say, Plato gets another drive, and maybe another from the VAG fold take up the gauntlet at some point in the future...

    Regards,

    Rob.
