“With Matt not being with Vauxhall because they're pulling out, obviously there is that possibility,” mused the popular Romford-born ace, “but as we all know in motorsport, you've got to get the right budgets together to get the whole thing going. I enjoyed the whole experience with Team Dynamics but I understand that they've got to get the budget, and if you take me out of the equation they've still got to find the budget to run the team anyway. Hopefully, with my name we can get something together, because I think it's a very good package.
“The whole BTCC works in a very good manner from a show point-of-view; it's got nice TV coverage on ITV and the entertainment's good. You know, there were 30,000-plus at Brands Hatch for the last race, so it does appeal to British race fans. From a brand point-of-view in this day and age that we live in I think it is nice, competitive and worthwhile to get involved with, so we'll see.
“I enjoyed it with Dave Pinkney. Dave's been around for a long, long time and he's quite a character, but it would be nice to be with Matt; it'd be nice to get someone in like that. He's a very, very experienced trooper in touring cars – I didn't realise how many years he's being doing it – and I think it would be a good little package.”
