That is a comprehensive list. The only name I can think of that is missing is Matt Hamilton, who appeared for the last couple of rounds with a TH motorsport prepared old shape Civic. I thought their plan was to return for a full season this year.

Hmm, I'm not sure about that one. TH Motorsport was George's outfit, wasn't it? And George is now in techspeed.

No TH Motorsport only ran John George, they weren't his team, in the same way they ran Matt, but weren't his team.

Trevor Humphrey (hence the TH) is their boss and they've been around since the late '90s in various saloon series.

Ahh, okay, thanks for clearing that up. Matt could improve with some more milage, but we were saying that about Micky Doyle after his first season, but he didn't turn up in '09.

Yeah and maybe if he does return with TH Motorsport he'll benefit from being the #1 driver and the team focussing around his just his car, unless of course they found a second driver.

The fact that George's Integra is listed as sold by him would indicate the driver owned that rather than the team, but I've a feeling the team did own the Civic that Hamilton drove in 2009, so that's the more likely car to see out. Unless of course they bought the Integra

Anyway Hamilton has said on Twitter (I know!!!) recently that he/we should know soon about his 2010 plans.

Matts intentions are to run the Civic for another season this year. Like GroupOfOne said we should know more soon.

He was said to be close to securing the funding but it was at a 'critical' stage.

Micky had budget issues, he didn't race anything in 09 unfortunately.

Would be interesting to see the old civic back out again this year- seems like it's been in the championship for ever!

More news towards onslow-cole coming back into the championship full time as well: http://www.thisislocallondon.co.uk/s...g_Cars_return/

Onslow-Cole's a good driver too. Really, I can't see why Vauxhall didn't keep him on in 2009. I actually think he did better than Andrew Jordan, so I'd like to see him back. Hopefully the Ford's can be as competitive as they were during the last round at Brands.

Does anyone else find it strange the official BTCC site hasn't reported on the Honda / Dynamics partnership?

Yeah, I was thinking that too. Then again, at the moment what is there to report? So far we've had a vague, if promising, press release from Honda and a "yeah, somethings happening, watch this space" on Facebook from the team. btcc.net doesn't tend to report stuff until there's an actual announcement...

Honda's press release was about the Mugen road car. The reference to BTCC was almost a 2 sentence 'oh BTW'. I expect the official site will wait until Honda / TD are ready to announce the extent of the backing and who the drivers are.

BTCC's site is always slow. It always takes a while for stuff to be shown on there.

Redshoes has already stated why BTCC.net are yet to report on this.
