Sounds like a decent campaign, just hope he can get the backers to make it on to the grid for 2010. The question is how competitive will a MG ZS be in 2010, considering the age of the car? One thing going for him is that the car will have been well sorted by WSR when they were racing it.

Yeah, but Dynamics had the Integra well sorted in 2006 and it won the title and now look at the cars, they've been superceded by newer S2000 cars and the MG is even older than the Honda. He'll be racing Martin Johnson if he carries on with his old Astra Coupe next year.
To stand a better chance you obviously need plenty of money to back your campaign, which the privateers certainly don't have, Paul O'Neill has looked good at most of the rounds he's been at, but sunshine/Techspeed don't have the money that Dynamics did in 2006, and the several times when he has hit the front he's had problems with the car.

One factor that could possibly benefit the young man, is that next year their maybe no factory cars in BTCC at all - therefore it won't be a case of one team developing a car. All the cars will stay the same in track performance next year, so therefore without any factory teams - privateers like himself can only benefit.

Yep I hadn't thought of that Sav tbh, I wonder if more privateers will be tempted to enter the series next season knowing that they will not be up against any big works teams.
