Phil Glew has announced that he will be unable to race at Rockingham this weekend, venue for the second round in the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The Clio Cup champion has been left in an 'untenable situation' after the loss of Triple Eight Racing Engineering team main sponsor, UNIQ. Glew's sponsor, WD-40 will continue to support him and hopes to work with him again in the future.

"I'm devastated to be out of the car at this early stage in the season," said Glew. "My main efforts are now focused on putting together a concrete package which suits WD-40, myself, and our other sponsors to enable us to begin racing again and continue our fantastic relationship."
