Default whats going to win this years championship

How about before the fighting on circuit begins we have a poll to see how people think this championship is going to finish. Will you vote for the high revving, high power, lower torque, wheel spinning honda's (driven by the stig, powered by jack daniels and 6 asprins), the lesser powered, higher torque, lower reving, torque steering and sometimes half the weight vauxhalls (driven by bo and luke duke, serviced by daisy duke,and powered by a bottle of scotch and a box of asda's red wine) or the under dog suzuki who may just sneak up from behind and surprise us like a jack in the box (driven by father abraham and his smurfs, powered by lucozade, pro plus and a can of red bull). Cast your votes now!!!!!!!!

I vote Suzuki



The talk's been all about the Vaux Honda battle but the lightweight low slung A-Series Coopers were flying at Teesside when I watched last year.

Horse Power & Torque could easily be outdone by nimbleness ........

That's all very well on the torque comment Owen but I was out in me Vaux today and boy do they misbehave up front. Much as i hate to say it, i'm thinkin Honda here. As for the low slung A-series. . . They're not proper mini's Andy

Based on the fact that there's only me & thee in Vauxhalls, there can only be one winner and it won't be me!

............or have you suddenly forgotten about your many years of racing experience, down-graded your engine to 50BHP & stuck a couple of sacks of coal in the boot of your car.....

If you can answer yes to all of the above then The General is the winning Vauxhall

I've voted vauxhall since I'm guessing hill climbing / sprints require a lot of low down grunt in short bursts - take em on a track day and I'd say honda...
I must make it to atleast one event as a spectator !
