Jake Hill tweeting a deal is edging closer; so not in place then. Probably still seeking out sponsorship for his target ride. Picture of the #HARD Toyota in the tweet, which may or may not be significant.

He actually retweeted a BTCCCrazy tweet - so the choice of car in the tweet was not made by him, but a library image of him driving.

IMHO Jake Hill will end up either at Team Parker or Eurotech as they are "new team" for him and I can't see him afford 888 or BMR , never mind WSR

if the Team Parker Focus will be same spec as the Motorbase ones then he could get podiums via a reverse grid

I like your thinking... it makes sense on many levels. Also wondering what car Team Parker will run - the Focus was Alex Martins, so it's not a given is it?

Martin sold both the TBL and car to Team Parker

see http://www.touringcars.net/2017/01/a...carrera-cup-gb

Considering Parker will still run Martin and his father in Carrera Cup, I'm sure there was a deal to be done.

Including Torq Racewear -

'We are really excited to announce that Maximum Motorsport driver Stewart Lines is the first driver on the Official BTCC grid to confirm that he will use our racewear in 2017, racing in the Ford Italia Focus. Cant wait for the start of the season! #motorsport #fashion'

And the Media Day picture with sl95 as a hashtag -
Ford Italia?
