In 2014, we have new cars in the WTCC but also some teams have not been able to find the money, a car or a driver. I will miss the teams from RML, STR, Wiechers, PB Racing and Bamboo Engineering. I have been very lucky because the teams and individuals have trusted and allowed me access to the garages, allowed me to take photographs and given me details regarding the movements of the race trucks. And this blog would not have been possible without all this. But even though I am only concerned with the logistics of the trucks, in 2014, the teams have been trying to keep things very secretive about when and where they have been testing. This has meant that I can write nothing this year.
Also, the success and interest that my blog has generated has meant that some teams have now started using Facebook,Twitter and their own team websites to post information and pictures about the race trucks. I am busy with my job and I do not want to spend my spare time writing about "old news". I only hope that they continue to highlight the importance of the Truckies and the jobs that we do.

I was looking forward to writing about the logistics of the WTCC races in 2014. The fact that the time schedule between Morocco and France is so small, it will be interesting to see how all the teams cope with this. The logistics to get to Russia is another difficult job for the Truckies. Now that the problems in Ukraine seem to be drawing so many different countries into disagreement, could we have a more difficult job crossing the Russian border or even a cancellation of the race?
