The main focus of the day was the weigh in where the drivers and cars were put on the scales to see who could get the lightest and best balanced car. Below Andy (the Boss) talks to a customer while Becky does the hard work of taking down all the numbers;

BTCC season opener at Brands 2014

A good first round was had by the BTCC grid at the beginning of April. The racing was a bit tentative to start with but soon got up to speed. Jason Plato was particularly impressive coming through the field in race 2. The Yuasa Honda’s seem to have gone from a quick car to a not so quick car as they were unable to catch Andrew Jordon in last years car.
