Very interesting: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/76954

Perhaps he liked his Goodwood run that he wants more? I would love to see Herbert in BTCC, him and Plato can gang up on Matt Neal. Twisted Evil

We have had some top name drivers in BTCC over the years and Johnny Herbert would be up at the top of the list. He is still more then capable of challenging the regulars in the Btcc and hopefully it would bring more spectators to watch it.

Who knows, Maybe Hill could come in next Laughing

Well I read somewhere that Johnny was considering a switch to Nascar after his spell in Speedcar, so I guess this is a natural progression on that route. Would no doubt bring in some punters too.

Would be good to see Johnny join the BTCC ranks, i guess maybe he has a backer to aid his move into the championship, or maybe wait til next year.

On a seperate note Thommo was quickest at Rockingham test

Gio was fastest at the Snetterton test

I for one would like to see Herbert compete, a quality driver who has competed in many top class series. I think he would find BTCC interesting, its a bit like NASCAR with all the bashing and close battles (only in that respect), just closer to home.

Fantastic news, I think Herbert could be competitive because he is a fairly versatile driver; having been successful in Formula One, Le Mans and Speedcar. The Honda Civic is not the most competitive car in the BTCC field, but if he can run in the top 10 that would be brilliant.

Its always intriguing to see how drivers who are used to RWD and much faster machinery adapt to FWD cars with much less power. Hopefully I'll be at Rockingham too. Cool
