Aon pair target strong campaign

Tom Chilton and Tom Onslow-Cole hope to impress during the 2010 BTCC season
Tom Chilton and Tom Onslow-Cole have said they are confident of a strong year ahead after confirmation that the pair will team up together for the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Having competed in four races last year, Onslow-Cole will join Chilton full-time in the Team Aon line-up as the Arena-run outfit switches to running its Ford Focus STs on LPG for the season ahead.

Chilton came close to giving the Focus its first win in the final rounds of the 2009 campaign at Brands Hatch and he insisted that the team was well placed for the year ahead.

“We've got a great chance, for sure,” he said. “The car is amazing to drive, responds well to all the set-up changes we've introduced and I believe the new LPG engine is as powerful as anything else out there.

“There are some new team and driver combinations who will obviously improve through the year so we will need to take advantage of the continuity we have, hit the ground running and bag as many points as possible in the first few events.”

Onslow-Cole meanwhile said he was excited about the prospect of a full-time return to racing and couldn't wait to hit the track for the season-opener at Thruxton.

“I can't wait to take the new car out and see what it can do in a competitive environment,” he said. “We already know that LPG is a more environmentally friendly fuel than petrol, so if it also proves to be a race winner then I'm sure I'll be driving a car powered by the fuel for the future for British motor sport.”
