Best result: 3rd
Having impressed in his debut season with the Audi A4, Rob Austin endured a frustrating year as his team struggled to build on the results gained towards the end of 2011. Engine problems early in the year hit progress hard, while budget issues also led to the team missing two events. However, a podium finish at Croft and impressive speed at Silverstone were clear indications of the potential within the package – something Austin will aim to show on more occasions in 2013.
