The big wild card in all of this is going to be Matt Jackson, that Focus has been lightning quick and could easily take away wins from this weekend. That alone could help Flash to the title. I really hope he gets it to.

Looks like the Beemers could also have a say in things

So crunch time at Brands Hatch, and in the BTCC that can be taken literally! Flash would really be a deserving champion. I'm rooting for him.

I'm not bothered between Plato or Flash, just hope it is won cleanly!

Let the battle commence!

Very exciting prospects. Just hope the title is not won or lost on driving penalties.

Plato seems to have no pace at all. He is always a little slower in the rain but wonder if they have a problem.

Not looking good for him

the mg has been poor in the wet all season, i believe if flash wins or finishes 4 points ahead of jason and 2 ahead of matt in race 2, he is champion.

Lots of incident in this race that's for sure. Can't be helped in these conditions. Newsham lucky not to roll there.

Congrats to the fans, they really are dedicated to stick it out in that weather :up:

Looks like it's between TOC and Aron Smith when they get this going. They're too fast for the rest in these conditions, at least, with all the ballast. Nice past by Aron for the lead :up:

**** Neate just trashed three cars with his horrible driving. Ditch him hard for 2013.

What happened to TOC on his first off? That big one was pretty much caused by Neate. He should have been a lot more careful recovering to the track. Not impressed.

Congrats to Shedden. A nice fair win (which by all rights he should have won a lot earlier without the boost limit problems.

Well done Flash! :clap:

Congratulations Gordon! About time he won one and couldn't happen to a nicer bloke!

Don't forget Aron Smith too, first win in his rookie year in an S2000 too. That's going some.

Wow. Massive impact for Files at Druids in the Clios. Saw him having a big hit at Rockingham last month too. Glad to see him okay.

Got some champagn to celebrate Plato's win but instead my wife is celebrating for Flash! :cry:

Seeing the Honda pair together makes you realise that you never see the MG drivers like that and with Neate so far down the table I cannot see why they would keep him for next season.

Well done to Flash on his championship. Fully deserved.

Good first wins for Wrathal and Smith, hope to see Smith in a NGTC car like Jackson next season.

And sorry but as already pointed out on here, what was that in race 2 from Neate? Why is he still in that car, he has done nothing all season. Hopefully Triple 8 will see sense and put somebody half decent in there next season

Also great for Wrathal to get his first win. I actually thought he'd won before as he's been close on occasion. Hopefully some future stars there.

I realise that it's just a shame they can't find a driver with some money that may actually score a point or 2
