It'd be unfortunate if Tordoff smashed Turkington off and damaged his car badly enough that he wasn't able to take part in race 2 and 3.Ok, I lied, that'd be great.
"If In Doubt, Flat Out!"
I was at Brands yesterday, some great racing (and rather a lot of rain in the latter half of the day!). Not sure why there is so much hate for Turkington here, I personally think he is a deserving Champion this year. Proper **** move from Plato in race 2. I have a huge amount of respect for Plato - and he is clearly a great driver - but with his experience he knows exactly what is going to happen with some of these moves. Still, BTCC has always been about trading a bit of paint, so can't grumble too much!
Skip to 3:18. Clearly his fault for turning in on Jordan, yet then procedes to blame Jordan for the whole thing. He does things like this and then plays the victim, even though it's his own damn fault. This is the only example I could be bothered to search YouTube for but I've seen him do it numerous times the past few years. An incident with Matt Neal where Turkington shunted him from behind, Neals fault for apparently braking early. The incident with Shedden that resulted in Shedden receiving a penalty, Turkington squeezed him off circuit, Shedden lost control because being pushed onto grass doesn't do much for traction, and the stewards gave him the penalty. It's things like this that make me hate him. He causes accidents with his awful defending, then whines, other driver gets penalty.
Infiniti are entering as a manufacturer next season sponsoring the injured paratroopers. All of the team members are wounded servicemen I believe.
@tbtstt I don't care about Plato We all know he's a dirty bugger but at least he doesn't hide it and whine that it's always the other drivers fault, ala Turkington.
