Hamilton reveals 2010 plans

Matt Hamilton to compete in the full BTCC season following late 2009 entry
Matt Hamilton has revealed that he will compete in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for a full season in 2010 after taking in the final two rounds of 2009.

Hamilton joined the grid for the events at Rockingham and Brands Hatch with his TH Motorsport-run Honda Civic Type-R as a taster ahead of 2010 and has now revealed that he will contest a full season during the year ahead.

“I cannot wait to get back on circuit,” he said. “It's been a very long hard winter, and as yet I have not as much as sat in the car since the final round of 2009 at Brands Hatch.

“I really think that the Civic has the potential to run consistent top tens, and occasional podiums. I know that I have to work hard on my driving; I still have very little experience of front wheel drive, and touring cars in general, but I know that with more seat time, I can threaten the front-runners.

"I know that the guys at TH will give me a great car to work with. They are already working hard at prepping the car, and they have a few performance tweaks that I can't wait to try.”

Hamilton will have his first run in the Honda this year during the annual BTCC Media Day at Brands Hatch later this month.
