"We've done a huge amount of work," Austin said. "I've had high expectations in the past and I don't want to get it wrong, but the car's going to look very, very different from the outside and underneath. I'm very confident. The top 10 should be a more regular occurrence.

"We're extremely happy to have Hunter back," he added. "He's an absolutely top guy and a good driver who deserves another chance to show what he can do."

The BTCC season commences on the 4th-5th April for the season-opener at Brands Hatch Indy circuit.
