The Subaru BMR team has weighed in on the row over the BTCC's technical regulations, after its driver Jason Plato accused championship bosses of unfairly restricting the team's cars.
Plato made his comments in an ITV interview at Knockhill two weeks ago, but was quickly rebuffed by Series Director Alan Gow., who said the team had actually been given special dispensation to change the homolgation of its inlet manifold.
Dave Newsham will once again substitute for Kelvin Fletcher at this weekend's eighth BTCC meeting of the season, at Rockingham.
Newsham took over the car at the Knockhill weekend, as the Emmerdale star was due to become a father. However Fletcher Junior has still not arrived, so Kelvin is missing a second race weekend.
BTCC boss Alan Gow has hit back at Jason Plato after the veteran driver complained that the championship was unfairly holding back his Subaru's performance.
In an interview with ITV's Louise Goodman, Plato claimed the championship's engine equivalency process was hampering Subaru's development.
Jason Plato and Matt Neal showed their younger rivals the way with a Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship win apiece at Knockhill, before Mat Jackson scored his fourth victory of the season in the final race.
Here's when and where to watch all the action from Knockhill this weekend:
Power Maxed Racing has confirmed that Dave Newsham will be standing in for Kelvin Fletcher at Knockhill this weekend as Fletcher is expecting the birth of his first child.
Newsham will compete in rounds 19, 20 and 21 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship on home soil north of the border, driving Fletcher's PMR Chevrolet Cruze ahead of the latter's return at Rockingham at the end of August.
