A traditional Christmas gift from Autoglym Tin Top Tuesday – Tinsel Top Tuesday! Join two Scrooges as they do their best to get into the festive spirit, Alan Hyde and Alan Gow as they catch with the latest BTCC news from Tom Ingram, Jake Hill, Tom Oliphant and Rob Austin, and pull a few crackers along the way! Slightly adult language warning in places…..but nothing you haven’t heard before!
Welcome to the 2018 Autoglym TinTopTuesday BTCC Champions Edition! And they’re all here: Colin Turkington, Tom Ingram, Dan Cammish, BMW UK CEO Graeme Grieve, Team BMW boss Dick Bennetts and Speedworks Motorsport boss Christian Dick. All chatting merrily with Alan Hyde.
Autoglym TTT is back after a studio relocation hiatus, and back with a belter! BTCC championship showdown is this weekend, so we speak to all those still in the title hunt – Colin Turkington, Tom Ingram and Tom Chilton – and get expert opinion too – Matt James and Paul O’Neill. Plus some Autoglym top tips from official championship valetter Chris McCleery from Mawsley Car Valeting. Boy we missed TTT this year – miss it no longer!
Rounds 7, 8 and 9 of the BTCC at Thruxton were scorching. A record crowd, and some old names back on top. Alan Hyde chats it through with Andrew Jordan, Sam Tordoff, Michael Caine, Matt Neal and Colin Turkington. It’s a beauty!
Donington was c-c-c-c-cold, but on track, the action was as piping hot as ever! It’s still the new guard we’re seeing doing the business on track, and they’re all on TTT tonight. Josh Cook, Dan Cammish, Adam Morgan, Chris Smiley, Paul O’Neill and Shaun Hollamby all drop by for a tin top natter. With Alan Hyde.
The 2018 BTCC season roared into life at Brands Hatch with three different winners, and a history-making race two, in changeable conditions, that presented us with three drivers on the podium who had never been there before, so on Autoglym Tin Top Tuesday, we in turn were presented with a gift of a first show! All three winners and all three race two podium drivers chat to us in this episode, and their team bosses get thrown into the mix as-well! Join Alan Hyde celebrating with all of them: Senna Proctor, Tom Ingram, Jake Hill, Jack Goff, Ollie Jackson, Tony Gilham, Shaun Hollamby and Martin Broadhurst. It’s a packed Episode 1, that’s for sure!
We have 2017 champions! All champs were crowned at the final BTCC meeting of the year at Brands Hatch, and every single one of them joins Alan Hyde and Matt James to have a chinwag Champions Edition of TTT! Ashley Sutton, Tom Ingram, Senna Proctor, Dick Bennetts, Christian Dick and final round race winner Rob Austin. They’re all here, and TTT 2017 goes out with a bang!
It’s amazing how the BTCC season marches on…after Rockingham, just tow more meetings before we know the 2017 champion. So the best thing is to spend a Tuesday evening nattering to the people involved, and talk to a former champion and Alfa Romeo champion at that. Alan Hyde chats to new BTCC race winner James Cole, Alfa Romeo driver to be Rob Austin, Alfa Romeo of note that was, Gabriele Tarquini, MG hot shot Josh Cook, and Audi driver and long standing friend of show, Ollie Jackson.
We’re pumped for two weeks of back-to-back TTTs! Snetterton and Knockhill reviewed and previewed respectively, including third in the 2017 BTCC Rob Collard, Shredded Wheat Racing with Duo new driver and Knockhill inhabitant Rory Butcher, debut driver at Snetterton Brett Smith, BTCC Gold driver Alain Menu, up and coming super fast muso Mike Epps, and returnee Stewart Lines. All cobbled together with the vocal cement of Alan Hyde.
A few weeks after the halfway point of the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship Season was reached at Croft Circuit, Matt James and Alan Hyde catch up with what was a very unusual weekend in the north east. A one in a million accident in qualifying resulted in three drivers remaining in hospital, and TTT catches up with the recovery of all three, and talks to the chief medic and chief scrutineer. Dr Paul Trafford, Luke Davenport, Aron Smith, Peter Riches, Anthony Reid, Oly Collins and Chris Smiley all drop in for what becomes the feel good show of the season, with recoveries progressing very well.
