I doubt it after what Adam Weaver said about issues with drivers & family/sponsors from 2022.

New company being launched tomorrow called Motorsport Coffee. One of the directors is a Robert Huff. Let's see if that prompts any news this week....

You might’ve seen but Ingram was doing some kind of competition on Instagram to get an invite to their launch.

That's been around for a while. It's a relaunch rather than a new launch.

Pit Lane Lurker should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Can someone shed some light on who actually OWNS the TD Civics used by one Motorsport last year?

Have seen it suggested that One actually bought the cars from TD - but I was under the impression they went back to TD at the end of last year - I was actually sure I read that they went back in a TD truck straight from Brands at the end of the season?!

I note that One have said they are spending this year developing the civic - but I guess that could be their ‘old’ car….

Can anyone say for sure who actually owns the TD Civics?

I'd like to know that too. I think we can say the Brands story seems a bit of a long stretch. If leased it's not like One could have sold them or that they could have been nabbed by a bailiff.

In the Autosport article it says that they are continuing with the NBE engines -which the TD cars have been developed around, and in the Touring Car Magazine interview with Cook/Edwards about the One Civic being very different to the TD one in many ways, you'd expect them to want to start with the TD machines to work with those engines. But, if the TD cars are as bad as Cook/Edwards reckoned maybe One have a plan to go in a different direction to TD with the engines/Chassis package.

Hopefully they won't be following TD in how long they are going on sabbatical....

They've got no cars, no drivers, and all their key management left last year.

I wonder if they're taking a year out so they can concentrate on developing the new FL5 Civic for next year, either with or without TD? Just a thought

None of those are definitive reasons that prevent a BTCC team returning in the future.

Honda UK aren't interested, so there's no point.

Plus the car is no longer Swindon built and getting shells from Japan is a non runner so the only way is to strip a roadcar like the SEATS whi must be v expensive

Steve Dudman: "We won’t be downing tools as we have clear programme of work that we want to carry out on both our chassis’, aero and cooling systems together with our engine programmes this year with our highly respected partners NBE [...] Finally, I’d like to thank Alan Gow and TOCA for their understanding and guidance on this matter."

If they didn't have the cars, do you think Mr Gow would be happy for the story to be published in that way?

Balance & weight distribution. Didn’t work with their set-ups, plus the extra hybrid weight was causing them to struggle with finding a sweet spot. They couldn’t get the car dialled in as they’d managed with their Civic’s.

There was a not insignificant difference in weight between the TOCA and Neil Brown engines. I forget which was heavier. That doesn't change the overall weight of the car as they just added/removed ballast, but did change the weight distribution so none of the previous set-up data worked.
