@RevolvingPrawn You do realise the TV lights graphic is delayed anyway, right?

@PeteTheDuck

I didn't find the start funny, I found it disappointing :p

Is that your vid, Chirs? If so, I might just have found you in one of my photos! :D
Yes it is mine.

Thanks @mike96 :p

EDIT: That start looks more like a creep to me, not a jump.

Definite jump start to me still. Watch it at half speed and you'll see!

Remember Alonso's jump start at Spain? When I saw that I was amazed that Charlie even picked up on it. Had Charlie been at the start of this race I'm pretty sure he would have given Turkington the pointing finger too :p

Have a photo album!

The more I look at this, the better it gets (especially if you ignore the fence...)


This is the results of having a proper DSLR camera (and a dodgy watermark)

I don't think that was a jump start. I think the TV graphics of the lights were slow, because looking at the cars behind, they all went too, so no jump start for me.

The TV graphics for the lights are
always slow! They'd be better off doing what F1 used to do and put a square in the corner showing the real lights.

EDIT: Speaking of which, did anyone notice that the graphics on the TV at Croft were pretty much always wrong? The weekend results thingy that they show for drivers at the end of races had a race 3 result after 2 races, which was clever!

Dirty driving from 2 of the BMW drivers as usual.

@fIsince08 If the lights are delayed, then why isn't the main feed delayed? Or maybe it is delayed but because it's not shown in a window within a window the delay isn't noticed. Maybe we're in the Matrix.

I don't know why the graphic is delayed, I just know it is :p

I actually thought Plato jumped the light in the first race. Great weekend for Plato but a pretty crap one for Jordan. Still four races to go, but I hope this weekend doesn't put an end to his title hopes. 

I will have to watch the highlights as I'd like to see the incident with Neal in Race 3 again: that seemed to start a long way back from the corner and I wasn't sure if he turned in on the BMW or was punted out.

He was punted out. Neal took the inside line for the corner, braked a little earlier as you do for a tight line, and Turkington braked too late and hit him. He's got an 8 place grid drop for the next round.

Take note Bernie, an unchanged calendar for 2015. http://www.btcc.net/2014/08/18/2015-btcc-calendar-confirmed/

That is, unchanged bar Oulton Park returning to the Island layout, thank goodness!
