They brought 2 new cars. The i30s used by Engstler and Catsburg in the WTCR.

Potentially a 3 car team.

Mr Lines has bought 6 TCR cars in the last 4 weeks too. With the number of new TCR cars in the UK along with HARD buying up some of the old NGTC cars, could we see consistent 20 car grids for 2021?

Motus One confirms three-car Goodyear Touring Car Trophy/TCR UK campaign

Goodyear Touring Car Trophy organisers are pleased to welcome Motus One, a new team to the series that will be bringing three cars to this year’s TCR UK grid.
Following a successful testing programme at the end of last year, Motus One acquired a trio of Civic TCRs supported by official Honda specialists JAS Motorsport. All three cars will compete for the full six-meeting, 14-round Goodyear Touring Car Trophy/TCR UK season.
Motus One has confirmed its driver line-up will comprise team boss Will Powell, saloon racing regular Dave Scaramanga and newcomer Danny Krywyj, who’ll be embarking on his debut season.
Commenting on the arrival of the new team, Goodyear Touring Car Trophy boss Stewart Lines said: “I’m delighted to welcome Motus One, having been impressed by their fast rise in GT racing and notably running the official Brabham BT62 programme.
“Their three-car TCR UK entry represents another significant step forward for our series, as we continue to attract new teams and drivers to the grid and develop the Goodyear Touring Car Trophy as a whole.”
Will Powell, Motus One managing director and pro-driver said: “We’ve made no secret of our ambition to add touring cars to the team’s activities and the Goodyear Touring Car Trophy has made that viable for us in 2021.
“Our strong relationship with Goodyear - who I’ve raced for and we work closely with on our Brabham BT62 programme - along with the plans to promote and grow the TCR package in the UK, makes this a great fit for us. As always, we aim to win on the track but respect the calibre of teams we’re up against. It’ll be a year of learning and fighting for everything we can. I can’t wait to start the season!”
Motus One is adding the TCR programme to its existing GT campaigns and has engaged a squad of experienced touring car engineers and technicians to supplement its operations. Consequently, the team aims to hit the ground running and be competitive from first round at Anglesey in April.

Interesting - so a regular double figures grid seems likely for this season.

Maximum - 6 'new' cars + 2? from last year
Motus one - 3
Essex and Kent - 2 (3?)
DW racing - 1

Any other likely TCR cars?

NGTC
Team Dynamics - Henry Neal? (doesn't look like he'll be getting the BTCC drive)
HARD - how many have they got and how many will they use?

Any others?

So if that list is right - why have HARD been buying up NGTC cars left, right and centre? I assumed they'd be pumping them out into this championship en-masse. Also Maximum have fat pile of TCR cars - so where are they? As it stands it's another poor grid - 9 confirmed entries isn't great.

Those are the only drivers confirmed/announced. Hard had several drivers testing the A-class a few weeks back, all of which could be putting their deals together.

If Maximum get a few more drivers out in their other cars, along with the possible's converted to confirmed and Darelle Wilson combined with Hard getting a few more NGTC cars out, we could see some 20+ car grids

Outside of the drivers listed above, I'd treat this as a club series where having the PR to announce a drive isn't really a thing. As we've seen in previous years, I'm sure there will be other drivers who turn up on an irregular basis. Unlike BTCC, there's no requirement to commit to full season, so I'm sure the likes of Maximum and HARD will run extra cars as and when someone turns up with the cash.
