Alan Taylor is to return to the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton after his Honda Integra was completely rebuilt following his huge accident on home soil at Croft earlier this month.

The Robertshaw Racing man was involved in an accident in the opening race of the weekend at Croft when he aquaplaned off on standing water at Tower and made heavy contact with the tyre barrier and the BMW of Stephen Jelley, which had gone off at the same place seconds earlier. Two marshals who were attending to the Team RAC car at the time suffered minor injuries.

Taylor's car was left nursing heavy damage to both the front and rear and was forced out of the race weekend on the spot with questions being raised about his continued participation in the championship - especially when the car was placed up for sale with the advert stating that it may be available for hire in the remaining rounds in 2008.

However, in less than three weeks, the Robertshaw team has worked hard to re-jig the chassis and replaced the damaged body work to ensure that Taylor will be able to take his place on the grid for the resumption of racing at Snetterton next month.

"The accident at Croft was hugely disappointing," he said. "The support that the team and I received from the crowd in appalling conditions was fantastic, it was gutting to have to sit out the rest of the day.

"Since then the lads have done a fantastic job in rebuilding the car and I can't wait to get to Snetterton. Testing there earlier in the year went really well and I'm looking forward to getting back out onto the track."
