Could we see Rullo race in the series next year?

Interesting to see who is funding the test? If his competitors for seat are Martin Plowman and Sam Tordoff, then i'd say his only chance against them two is if the drive requires backing.

The cars were pretty poor this year for what were supposed to be factory-backed entries

They weren't really factory backed, it was more a supply deal for Power Maxed Racing's parent company's car fleet.

Quite possible Alex's father Peter?

Possible look of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta?

They were factory backed enough to be registered for the Manufacturers Championship, but the deal being more about a B2B with PMR, then that would explain why the press release at the top of the thread is so positive despite no results to speak of!

Is Alfa supporting the entry?

Looks good either way, and a good steerer in Rob Austin at the wheel

FbF Alfa dealers are supporting the entry so not factory backed.

An Alfa Dealer Team still sounds good though, the ADT was a staple of the BSCC & BTCC from 1981 through until 1988 with an assortment of John West-backed Alfa Sud, GTV6 and 75 models

Be great if Rullo gets the drive, been a while since an Aussie has been in the BTCC, Hyla Breese in 2002 the last?

No Rullo in 2018, but Rob Austin will be in the Alfa.

Anyone watch the opening round last weekend? The second race was exciting seeing the back markers come through with slicks to win the race.

I'm a bit late to it this year but it's about-damn-time those Focuseseses were brought up to... well, current-ish spec body shape. (Just in time for the new one, I suppose). They've been running that old body for too long, especially so close to it's native land. And the Civic Type R should be good too. The wing on it was almost big enough to use as it's race aero. I'll try and catch up on the season, probably on Fox.

ITV has good review coverage of it, even better if you can stay up late/early and watch it live.
Donnington Park was yet another good few rounds of racing.

Speedweek shown the first round at Brands Hatch last weekend. Even for BTCC standards it was quite messy.
