TOC is a top quality driver, no question and a brilliant development driver. in '11 Ford asked Arena to make him an offer he couldn't refuse cos Chilton and obviously Neate were unable to develop the new Focus. He hasn't had the results he should have over the last 2 years but he's driven too many different chassis in too few seasons - he needs multi year stability with one team and car. My worry is HARD are - IMHO of course - running far too many cars in '13..

@Pinky.. thanks for the correction, didnt realise it was that many! Will the S2000 Honda be used for driver rotation again like 2012? Liked that idea, gave some people chances which is always nice to see..

Whats the chance of HARD getting Gio back anyone!? Fingers crossed

@Bobby B

Tom is an average touring car driver, a long line of medicore English touring car drivers. If he was that good he's be in WTCC or DTM....not a chance.

Won't win the BTCC...yeah, a real talent.

@Terminator - you're right. Tom did not win any races outright in 2012, in fact he only scored a handful of Indy Trophy wins.

Tom is a good driver, I just hope Gilham's outfit can build him a good car. However the challenge for Gilham and the Passat is that historically, road car to race conversions have rarely been successful. Here's wishing Gilham all the best and hoping he can buck that trend.

'The 25-year-old, who raced with the West Surrey Racing-run eBay Motors outfit in 2012, taking ten wins and finishing sixth in the championship'.... I don't remember TOC taking any wins last season Crash...
