    I thought it was the new electronic handbrake rabbit


    All test cars have them, it cuts off all electrical power for use if something bursts into flames during testing or the fly by wire throttle decides to do its own thing. All race cars have them too, but on the outside so the marshals can use it - seemed to be a rather hot job during the weekends BTCC race, but it was clearly useful Twisted Evil

    I read Steph's post at 6.10pm yesterday that the race was being repeated at 4.30pm but the programme would finish at 6 and there would be nothing on the itvplayer.

    Doh

    I had been going to watch it, too!

    The race is repeated in the early hours of tomorrow morning on ITV (1,not 4) so I'm taping it!
