Andy Neate has left Halfords Yuasa Honda Racing and the team has withdrawn its third 2016 BTCC racing licence with immediate effect.
Andy Neate has left Halfords Yuasa Honda and the team has withdrawn its third 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship racing licence with immediate effect.

Neate, who made his BTCC return after a three-year absence at the season opener two weeks ago, has split with the defending BTCC drivers' and manufacturers' champions after underwhelming results at Brands Hatch where Neate failed to score a single point across the three races.

The Honda squad has subsequently returned its loaned TOCA BTCC licence and withdrawn the car entry, slimming its 2016 squad back to a two-car entry with Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal.

The third licence had been loaned to the team prior to the start of the 2016 season but after being returned to series organisers TOCA it will be re-allocaed to another team or new entry for the remainder of the season beginning at round three at Thruxton on the 7-8 May.
