The process of selecting the grid at our Breakfast Clubs is an exhaustive one. Over 50 cars have to be selected individually from a list of thousands of hopeful applicants, so there will always be a few disappointed enthusiasts who miss out.
But we hope that in the cars that we do chose we bring an incredible array of hot hatch history onto our most famous straight. So here's a selection of the best of the cars we picked this year. In it you'll find a Hyundai i30N, a Rover Metro GTi (yes, one of those), Volkswagen Polo G40, Fiat Strada Abarth and more. Could you pick a favourite? Let us know below.
