Nice one.

Hope he has some strong drives and secures a drive for next year, p*ss poor no one could give him a drive in BTCC considering how cr*p some of the drivers this year are.

Fantastic! It would have been better to seem him defend his crown but at least he will race on a world level and maybe catch the eye of one of those teams.
Good luck Colin for all three races with six chances to show your class.

Taz,unfortunately the BTCC is about how much money you've got rather than talent these days, that's why you have jokers like Andy Neate driving.

Plato is probably the only person not paying for his drive this year (not counting Matt Neal as his dad pays for his drive and runs the team).

Goodluck to Turkington by the way.

Collard pays for the WSR drive, that's the only he's got the seat. There are much better and younger drivers such as Adam Jones and Paul Luti who don't get a look in because of a lack of funding. Saying that Collard looks like a touring car god compared to his current team mate....

If my dad was a rich as Tom Chilton's I'd be in the BTCC right now.

The BTCC grid has really suffered this year - losing Turkington, Gio, Jones and Adam all in one hit is really disappointing, and leaves only half a dozen really decent drivers. It's great that Gio has something sorted now, ideall ythe backing for a full 2011 campaign can be sorted on the back of this.

To Kyle - Adam Carroll is doing some races for Andretti Motorsport this year, with a view to hopefully going there for a full season next year, his first is at Watkins Glen on 4th July
