    Mark Hazell in at RAR then - interesting.

    No sign of an entry from Techspeed as yet.

    Redstone Racing - you could tell there was going to be a change there as the car had white flashes at Brands.

    Not so sure about Hazell in the Audi. We'll see how he gets on, was hoping to see Turks there.

    No Owy as of yet which is again another disapointment

    No real surprises.

    However on the plus side, i really like the look of the Motorbase Focus. Real nice Livery! And nice to see the beemers with a bit more colour (not much) and it looks like Ebay are really getting behind them this season! Hopefully we'll see some good times this afternoon!

    I think the Motorbase livery is very good, also noted that WSR now have an albeit small sponsorship from the AA, times have changed since team RAC!

    Wow total transformation for Welch. That car looks great in it's new livery and sponsorship! The shape of the car looks much much better too! Hope there hard work pays off :-D

    Pretty good entry list, shame there are no Tech-Speed enties. I'm guessing Rob Austin might race the other Audi if no one else comes forward with the money.
    Anyone know why the second Thorney Motorsport entry doesn't have Rob Hedley's name on it?

    A picture of the Motorbase Fords is in the gallery. I like their new livery, much better than last year's.
    Yes to penguins! No to mimes!

    Sorry, this may be an obvious question but where are you guys seeing pictures of the cars, or are you trackside? PM me if the answer breaks the rules.

    So far the Motorbase livery is the one im not so sure on. I think the white looks too random. Like 'where can we stick some white vinyl?'

    Jeff Smith's Civic looks very unfinished compared to Jordan's.

    The Ebay cars look great!
