I bet theres some John Guest money going into this, because VXR didnt even know if they could get a third driver. So expect to see JG on all of the VX cars??

possibly, but aren't they the main sponsor or eurotec? In fact, what will happen to eurotech now that their only driver is gone...

Wow, really didn't see that one coming.

Well, good luck to him, great place for him to be after just a year of BTCC racing.

And I guess Eurotech will still be running their cars in other series, so Mike Jordan will still have plenty to keep him occupied.

May have sum Eurotech sponsorship on there u never know!

lso what about the rumour that SEAT Holland may enter Tom Coronel in the BTCC and select WTCC rounds?
Good to have another personality in the series and one that doesn't mind abit of argy bargey lol
Whats that Eurosport quote....

"I like Tom. He's a character. Few are the stories that don't end with the phrae 'and there was Tom Coronel at e bar.... in a dress!!"

Yeah that 18 yr old will be interesting to watch. Wasn't that long ago a certain Mr Chilton was in that 'youngest driver' seat. And look what happened to him!!!

I don't want to see Team Halfords go with Volvo, I'd rather see Northern South get it.

Well its the team that run the cars in Sweden are apparantly going to run the Volvo's. Plus apparantly they ain't running this year but next year in the new S60 with the bio-ethanol engine. Would be a alot better to see another saloon join rather than another hatchback.

Yeah I saw this story about Thommo.
Now seeing as he's had a test with all but VXR I'm thinking he'll be back in BTCC very soon.
Motorsbase is all filled unless they get a new car... Doubt he'd go with Tempus, cars slow in comparison. Dynamics would be my fave option and he's got enough experience with Honda from before and N Technology just.
Would like to see him back in the series but only if he gets a competitive drive. Dont wanna see a former champ struggling at the back.
Same reason why I'd not want to see Andy come back because the BMW is STILL not consistantly better than the Vectra and its not worth HIS 'status' to lose out when Muller's away in the WTCC probably winning it all again...

Yeah, I see the 2008 Lacetti in the right hands being a race-winning drive. Huffy drove the wheels off one this year and got some good results in the WTCC, don't see why it can't be the same in the UK.

Although, I would like to see the Vectra competing against the WTCC cars - imagine if VXR entered Neal, Jordan and Giovanardi as a one-off at Brands this year the way Turks and WSR did in 2007. It would never happen of course - they'd be competing against other GM cars in the form of Chevrolet, but I still wanna see how the Vectra does on the world stage.

I know its a S2000 car so why the hell hasn't someone bought one!?!?!
Even if it was a privateer entry. Would be fascinating if we could see a WTCC spec comparison. Particularly bearing on mind how good the VXR is against the BMWs in BTCC. They're at worst only year old WTCC cars ....
Buuuut how would it do against the SEAT's that actually WORK!?!?
