The 2014 British Touring Car Championship season was eagerly awaited. Seven champions and a near-capacity grid of 31 cars meant drama was almost guaranteed.
And so it proved. The season had a bit of everything, from great battles to runaway wins, via new victors and controversial clashes.
It said something for the level of the series - and the unique challenges of the now-ubiquitous NGTC - that returning double champions Alain Menu and Fabrizio Giovanardi didn't score a win or get into title contention.
