Doyle announces Scottish Sun deal.

Having battled his way through his debut HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship season, Michael Doyle has taken the first step towards putting his plans in place for the 2009 campaign after inking a deal with the Scottish Sun.

The Scottish daily newspaper will provide media support to the 21-year-old during the course of the season and will also benefit from other assistance during the campaign – including promotional support ahead of his home rounds at Knockhill.

Despite battling with a small budget throughout his debut year in the series, Doyle has made an impressive start to life in the BTCC – taking his best result of eighth place last time out at Silverstone – and admitted he was delighted to agree the deal for 2009.

"I'm absolutely overjoyed to have agreed this partnership with the Scottish Sun," he said. "It's a massive development for myself and InTune Racing and is a reflection on how well we've done this year with our limited resources.

"The Scottish Sun is a huge newspaper in Scotland and the coverage they've given me this year has been superb. To increase that yet further in 2009 will be a huge help as we try and attract additional sponsors. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Jon Doran and all of the guys at the 'paper – we aim to do them proud during the season finale at Brands Hatch the weekend after next and then take big steps forward together in 2009."

Doran, the 'papers motor racing correspondent, added that they were delighted to throw their support behind Doyle for his second season, adding that he was hopeful that the added exposure would help bring more backing onboard for the 2009 campaign.

"Michael is an outstanding talent," he said. "He is punching above his weight in a very tough competition. The Scottish Sun made its name standing up for the underdog so this is an ideal partnership for us.

"We are the number one 'paper in Scotland for motor racing coverage and hopefully, with our help, Michael can attract new sponsors and become the champion his talent deserves."
