BillWiskins should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Even without all of the shady and peculiar financial company goings-on, I just don't think Tesco would be a great fit with Jaguar, image-wise. Exclusive, cool, relatively expensive premium brand hardly aligns well with cheap, accessible, abundant 'everyday' retail. To me.

If Jaguar were to return to racing, one of the GT series or the GT class of the WEC would be a better marketing fit for the company than the BTCC, both in terms of the venues visited and the other brands that are competing.

Hey...they could run a pair with Andy Wallace and Jan Lammers driving with technical assistance via a ouiga board!

Ok...funs over.

Waitrose is more Jaguar I would think.

I'd love to see Jags in BTCC or DTM.

If they go for BTCC how about something along lines of Infiniti ParaRacing Team.

Same model, but supporting our Marines, the Jag Racing Green would be appropriate, the rivally already exists and hopefully it could draw new fans to BTCC.

Not quite sure why you'd call Paras Racing a "charity" team

Lead by Derek Palmer Snr
Prepared, built and developed cars for BTCC, ETCC and WTCC. Won Privateers’ champion in the FIA European Super Touring Championship, as well as European Super Touring Trophy and lots more

Driven by
Derek Palmer Jr
Dutch Touring Cars, Historic Touring Cars, European Saloon Car Championship, Historic Super Touring Cars (Others FIA GT, British GT and European GT championships)
&
Richard Hawken
3 Club Touring Car Championship wins, driver of the season, 2 podiums at the David Leslie Memorial. Bought and successfully ran to championship success an ex-BTCC David Leslie Nissan Super Touring car.
10 years in Super Touring cars, Cavalier and Primera

Backed by Infiniti(Nissan)
I'd say they had a pretty good pedigree.
Just because they want to raise awareness and funds for Support Our Paras, the official charity of The Parachute Regiment, I wouldn't call them a charity team

Whilst the information is wonderful, I don't think charity was being used in a derogatory way. Just saying its a team back by a charity

It's hardly blue-chip, quality sponsorship. Whichever way you want to dress it up, it still comes across as a charity team so long as that's the team name.

From the team's website

The aim of the team is to specifically help raise awareness and funds for Support Our Paras, the official charity of The Parachute Regiment, one of the most iconic Regiments in the British Army.

All profits generated by the Infiniti Support Our Paras Racing Team will be donated to the ‘Support Our Paras’ charity.
Team's stated aim is to support and raise funds for a charity. What else would you call them if not a charity team?

I don't disagree that one of their aims is to raise cash for a charity, I just thought to call the team itself a charity, was well, a bit uncharitable.

If they can be competitive, does it really matter who they want to pass some of their revenue on to?

That's a fair comment maybe I'm a bit too sensitive when it comes to this particular team. I'll try and dial it down a little.
