Team HARD. is planning to run NGTC-spec VW Passats alongside its Vauxhall Insignias in 2013’s Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

BTCC is getting a lot of marque's represented, its more diverse than what WTCC has. The Passat is never going to be the most exciting car, but BTCC is going back to bread and butter family models - it's encouraging.

Somebody needs to make an NGTC BMW F30 for a RWD fly in the ointment...WSR?

I hope Gilham's plans come to fruition, but he has a lot of balls in the air. He's either acquired some major backing or he on a wing and aa prayer....after all he couldn't complete his season with 888 in 2011 due to money problems.

Tom Onslow-Cole is gonna be driving one of the Passat's http://www.touringcartimes.com/article.php?id=8478

TOC is a great driver to have onboard, guess the WSR deal required him to bring too much budget to stay on, or he may prefer FWD

Clio Cup Champion Jack Goff has signed to drive a Gilham Insignia http://www.touringcartimes.com/article.php?id=8474

I'm glad that the Passat CC will race, the regular Passat looks deeply snoozy.
