They aren't clever enough to realise it's all an act.

To break this down - everyone is not clever enough?

Or just that some people enjoy the entertainment in having a sporting rivalry and an 'enemy' to cheer against?

I'd love to see him go there. However, I hope not in a separately sponsored car, as the Toyotas easily had the best livery last year (IMO)!

Anyone else heard the rumour of a former WTCC Champion being on the grid this year?

Yes. Nothing has been made public yet I think.

If you believe Reddit, it should be in a Toyota or a Cicely BMW...

Cool, guessing either Huff or Priaulx, if the later then the Ciceley BMW might be more likely?

I suspect that is just speculation, as I don't see how someone could have received the news that a WTCC champion would be in either a Toyota or a Ciceley BMW. Come to think of it, how does a rumour like this start anyway; how did you hear about this, Steel Wheels and crmalcolm?

Looking at the contenders:
Thed Bjork - I don't think so
Jose Maria Lopez - can't see it happening
Yvan Muller - possibly, but unlikely
Rob Huff - if it was anyone, I would guess him
Gabriele Tarquini - definitely not
Andy Priaulx - again, possible, but I would think unlikely

But to have any of these in the BTCC next year would be brilliant.

I believe Huff previously said he would need a paid drive to race in the BTCC - presumably that would be Toyota backing then?

Comes from a paddock source & someone who does post on here, but they often can’t divulge much detail, hence my question. As we often see and crmalcolm has mentioned before, if you don’t have ‘facts’ all you get is questions on the validity of rumours or stories.
