It's shaping up to be another close season!

I think the title will come down to Plato vs Priaulx though, with Plato ultimately winning, unfortunately.

Most of the new liveries can be found here:

The most disappointing livery certainly has to be the second (black) Infinity, the blue scheme is so much nicer, even it it does lack design.

I'll be at the first round at Brands Hatch if anyone needs any photos for projects. The new MSA Formula Ford/Formula cars will also be racing in the UK for the first time.
