I must've missed that, was it on the BTCC webpage?

I recall that the date after which testing is 'free' is a regulation allowing cars to run in TCT.
Also note that, at the time of publication, the pre-season test was TBA.

The extra day of testing may be relevant if the Focus is a Mk.4, and will be used by Excelr8.

That's what I'm referring to.
Regulation 6.11.1.a.i
Current spec cars are free to 'test' from the end of R30 until 25th March '20.

Now it is Goodyear I assume it still stands? Unsure.

Interesting. Motorsport News wouldn’t have a front page article if there wasn’t a new car, or a big sponsor/driver announcement

Well like I said in the last page motorbase uploaded their polar bear gif to their twitter and facebook accounts today and an announcement has followed the last two times they've done so, so I'm expecting this to be true

Certainly the Mk4 Focus grill - interesting wording on the cover 'revamped'...
