Onslow-Cole returns to Aon

Tom Onslow-Cole is to return to Team Aon for the Silverstone rounds of the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship this weekend.

The former Vauxhall driver, who joined the team for a last minute outing at Croft earlier in the season, will line up in the team Ford Focus ST alongside Tom Chilton – who raced alone in the events at Snetterton and Knockhill as the team continued development work on the new car following the summer break.

Onslow-Cole admitted he was thrilled to get a second chance to drive the Focus, and said his main aim was to try and build on the points finish secured by Chilton last time out in Scotland.

“I'm delighted to second go, over the moon,” he told BTCC.net. “I got the phone call last night and haven't slept much since!

“Last time at Croft it was all very last minute and that led to some mechanical problems with the car. But from what I've seen these last few rounds it has come on massively and the team tells me there's been another step forward for Silverstone. It's quite a different animal now.

“Tom gave it its best result last time out at Knockhill with an eighth and, although we can't really set our goals yet until we see how it compares to the others in the two practice sessions tomorrow, it'd be great if we can shoot for some more top tens.”
