Article on Huffy on Autosport website.

In a nutshell he won't be back unless someone pays him a salary to race: he needs the money! He reckons (and I suspect he is right) that no drivers are paid in BTCC.

He's absolutely right. It'd be great to see him back in BTCC but professonal drivers want to be paid for racing. I bet he's right about lack of paid drivers in current BTCC. It's a huge shame.

I always thought Plato was the only paid driver in the field, unless he gets his salary paid to him through sponsorship and not from Subaru/Warren Scott?

Someone give Huffy a paid ride, he certainly would liven things up at the front

What the BTCC needs is a street race in London or Birmingham.

Adrian Flux pay the majority of JP's income from BTCC at the moment, as it was in his Tesco 99 Momentum KX Clubcard days. Hence he will always aim to get his sponsor's details in whenever possible.

Remember, he approached BMR with the idea to use a Subaru, but they had to continue with the VW for a while first until it was all in place. Subaru would not be interested in paying a driver's salary in BTCC (as I expect most manufacturers feel).

I don't think Warren Scott has enough money to pay himself. I think 2018 will be the last season for the MG's, if they survive this season without any more major damage.

I think BMR will probably downsize to 2 cars, with Price and Cole not returning.

With Mike Bushell winning the Clio Cup again, will we see him make a return to the BTCC?

Interviewed after the final race at Silverstone, Bushell did say that he'd like to get back in the BTCC again but (if I recall correctly) it would be hard work to get there. He'll definitely be on the radar for a few teams, I reckon, but he'll have to put some graft in to get the sponsors.

He's also, all being well, going to be a dad around BTCC media day next year, so he's going to be busy with that too

Regardless of where he ends up, and it's been covered, but this is still lovely.

“The reception from the fans has also been brilliant. The fans are what make the championship – you can have any championship in the world with any cars you like, and the racing can be as close as you like, but if you haven’t got the fans, you haven’t got a championship.

“I’ve been away for 14 years, and they’ve remembered me, followed me and welcomed me back like I’ve never been welcomed before, and to have that kind of response is very humbling.

“What a team these guys are and it’s great to be here in front of some great fans. I really want to get myself back into the BTCC – it’s been a great weekend.”
