Second Speedworks outing for O'Neill

16 August 2012

Paul O'Neill is to make a second Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship appearance with the Speedworks team after confirmation that he will compete for the Toyota outfit at Knockhill next weekend.

O'Neill joined the team at Croft when regular driver Tony Hughes was unavailable and will again replace Hughes at Knockhill, with commitments elsewhere meaning he can't be at the wheel of his Toyota Avensis on Saturday for practice and qualifying.

Former Tech-Speed driver O'Neill tested with the team during the summer break at Pembrey and will again partner BTCC rookie Adam Morgan for the Scottish race meeting.

“We knew some time ago Tony wouldn't be able to make the Saturday due to prior commitments,” team boss Christian Dick told BTCC.net. “Paul did a great job for us at Croft and took part in our very productive test at Pembrey, plus all the team and kit are going anyway to Knockhill.

“He was a natural choice and it will be interesting to see how he can go now he's got the Croft and Pembrey mileage under his belt in the car.”
