Hi Alex,

Thanks for the questions, hopefully I can shed some light on things

1) The design is more often than not lead by my sponsors and their brand colours. We then tailor their designs to fit the car and suit the TV cameras. The team also have a certain amount of space for team partners. The process is very different if the team have manufacture backing, it would then be down to the team and manufacture to agree the artwork/designs.

2) I wouldn't say I'm disappointed but you are correct, I would learn from Gio! This was proven in 09 with Chevrolet, I had really good team-mates in Jason and Mat and that really helps! More importantly, having a great team behind me is critical, Triple 8 are a massive support and having a team mate this year will also help, The whole team gels really well.

Thanks for the questions, hopefully we'll see you at the races.

Thanks for the answers James

Judging by the media day results if the NGTC Vectra is really on the pace this time I am sure you will finally get your first official BTCC win just like Andy Jordan managed last year.

Speaking of Jordan I guess he will be one of your main rivals this year because he is very talented and drives the same car type as you
