Let's face it - Tony's being absurdley ambitious! When was the last time the BTCC had a 5-car team??

Though all of these comments about the car being big...
Having looked up some stats... *ahem!*
"VW Passat CC - 2,711 mm
MG6 - 2705 mm
Insignia - 2737 mm
Avensis - 2700mm
Audi A4 -2,808 mm"

Good luck to them will be good having more cars on the grid and looks good too.

have to wonder where Tony got the extra money from though as he was struggling a year or 2 ago........

my betting is a Mr Andy Neate will be driving one of the cars!

The Passat must be the heaviest car out there next season!It takes two to three seasons bringing on a new car, so I hope they don't get too disappointed when they don't win. Look at the aeon team with their Ford Focus, they moved from BTCC because of the lack of results, now they are in WTCC, but still at the back of the grid!

Looks stunning and the shape of the body will make for a very aero friendly car and i can see it being a front runner before the seasons over

Well that could have scuppered AMD's plans if they were planning an NGTC car, i personally think the Passat will look good but be too big to be a touring car, its more the type of thing you'd expect to see in teh Superstars series. And tbh i cant see them being front running.

Gilham deserves tons of respect! We all saw how hard he fought in 2012 and now coming back much stronger in 2013 goes to show you don't need Honda or China money to run in the BTCC. Definately gonna be cheering for Gilham next season!

The tail enders won't be round the Real Radio Hairpin at Knockhill at this rate when the race starts with all these Passats on the grid.

The editing to stick on "game changer" and "dunlop" appears to have been done by a 5 year old using MS Paint for the 1st time.
