Good spot.

From Mat Jackson's Twitter Profile:

'BTCC Driver - Ford Focus sponsored by E Spares, Volvo Trucks, Mountune, Silverstone Auctions, DUO, IKO, Shredded Wheat'

Jackson tags DUO in his own posts - Tordoff and Chilton don't refer to DUO in their own promotion - so has the sponsorship followed Jackson elsewhere????

(Chilton does tag IKO, Gallagher and Shredded Wheat)

couple of years ago but implies heavily that DUO was Jacksons sponsor

Duo donít JUST sponsor one car/team though, unless Mat Jackson is secretly Rob Austin...

True - but they do say that they only sponsor drivers, not teams.

'Proud sponsors of various British Touring Car drivers'

And as their sponsorship has disappeared from a car in a team that Jackson had signed for - it might indicate that Jackson is also going to disappear from that team?

So, DUO are a personal sponsor of Mat Jackson.

DUO's logo is not present on a Motorbase car published today from an official photo-shoot.

Jackson + DUO ≠ Motorbase ?

There could be a bit too much 2 = 2 =45 going on here...
The 'official' picture posted of Sam Tordoff's car was side on, the mobile 'phone picture was front on. The Duo logo's clearly visible on the front of his Focus would not be visible in a side profile picture.
The inside roller shutter door which is behind the car in the mobile 'phone picture looks like the same door the official side-on picture was taken outside of. Sam Tordoff appears to be wearing the same Motorbase jacket and red/black shoes in both pictures, so I'd assume that these two pictures were taken one immediately after (or before!) the other...

Isnít it funny how a year on from Jordan leaving Motorbase as they couldnít run a car in the Pirtek livery,Tordoff turns up with a unique livery to his team mates!!!

I was under the impression TBL's were awarded to teams based on the previous seasons entry. As Welch never ran last year, I would have thought that meant he would have to relinquish his right to the TBL.

Welch owned the TBL, Motorbase ran on their behalf so i believe that fulfills their requirement
