Oh yes I hadn't realised that.

Even as a FWD car though it would be cool to see one in the BTCC.

I do hope someone takes a gamble on a Jaguar XE, Mercedes-Benz C-Class or Alfa Giulia. Would definitely add some more premium brands to the championship and I would imagine look quite cool on track as well.

AMD is/was a team. The MB car is not run by AMD any more than MB.

Nonetheless I wouldn't be surprised to see MB want to add a second entry for 2023, most probably for Jewiss, unless he wants to go Supercup.

[pedant]

The A5 Sportback is 5mm shorter, 4mm narrower and 42mm lower than the A4.

The A5 Sportback would make a stylish addition to the grid I feel.

Although given current showroom trends, we're probably going to end up with a Mazda CX-60 representing the future of RWD in the BTCC

In respect to them getting a new set of engineering - Shaun Hollamby is still involved with the MB Motorsport team (AFAIK). He tweeted only today about 'our engineer' (Craig) being in hospital and his profile describes himself as 'Team Manager @MB_Motorsport' (although he tagged the wrong MB account ).

MB Motorsport has run a 2-car team successfully before in 2020 with Hollamby and Blundell at the helm - I'm sure they could do the same again.
Thank you for the prompt ref the wrong MB account!!

You know that that now means - because the comment referred to 'clogging up the airwaves' that will soon make its way onto a table with an AmD entry sponsored by Airwaves as confirmed!!!!
