Was that this year? In which case that would mean a return to HARD, and quite a disappointing one with the Gornall or Bushell rumours.

TouringCarTimes weekly newsletter roundup does mention Bushy as having apparently being offered a ride. Makes sense, TG will have pulled his little black book of race car drivers out and bashed the phone. I definitely would have phoned Bushy in his position.

Bushell posted on his personal FB the Monday after Brands saying that he had been offered a BTCC drive and would anyone be interested in sponsoring him. That's what kicked off all the speculation about who it was that was leaving back then.

He will be back one day I hope, but I hope he finds something in the meantime. He's done alright with the opportunities he has had so far

From what I’ve seen of him, he seems quite good. So he should no problem getting up to speed, even if he more used to GT racing

Hopefully he'll be keeping Goffy company once he's got a few miles under his belt

I'm sure Gow would do just a good job with the Supercar championship

I actually think the BTCC could do with Gow stepping away soon. Times move on and for a few years now the BTCC has been behind the times interaction wise. There's so much more the series could be doing social media wise, particularly on YouTube. 7 hour live broadcasts on ITV4 aren't the way you bring new fans in. The at the track experience is a bit better, excluding the last couple of years obviously, but even there there is so many easy things they could be doing that other series around the world have pioneered. The series just seems rather stuck in it's ways is all, which while it's still successful isn't really a big problem, just disappointing.

I second that. I just hope whoever ends up succeeding him with regards to the BTCC will do a better job than Octagon did.

100% agree with this. Look at where F1 has gone without Bernie.
