Grasping at straws, but... is that a 'Mat Jackson' under the MB Motorsport team?

More likely is the Laser tools superteam all running Cupra, tying in with the idea Ash is departing to new pastures asone chassis type for the whole squad and less spares to bring as Laser come inhouse for Aiden at HARD. Lser title sponsor?

Goff
Taylor-Smith
Moffat
Crees

Some TBLs accounted for then. And infinitis to rehome.

Understandable that Oliphant is taking a year off to support his partner

Be interesting now to see who get his BMW seat, that's certainly going to be a hot ticket

Highly likely:

'Tom joined the MB Partners team whilst completing the final year of his Sports Journalism degree at Solent University, where he graduated with First Class Honours.
Bitten by the bug from a young age, Tom has been obsessed with motor racing since he was four years old. Devoted to working in the industry, he steps into the role of PR Officer after becoming an FIA-accredited journalist working in the Formula One paddock.
Away from work, Tom is a keen gamer and enjoys DJing in his spare time.'

Triple Eight Racing have teased a triumphant return to the BTCC this morning... on Tiktok. Didn't a fan buy the name a few years ago?

There are a few deals signed recently but being kept under wraps, so whilst it might seem quiet, there is stuff happening. Nothing new to the rumour mill from that though. A lot hangs on the TBL allocation, then expect a flurry of activity and rumours

I'm not sure of a fan buying the name.
The team was absorbed into BMR in 2017:

'At the end of 2016, the team was sold to Team BMR chief Warren Scott. He retained 888’s MG factory programme in 2017 but the cars were sold to AmD Tuning for the 2018 BTCC season. For the first time since the foundation of the team, the Triple Eight Racing wasn’t part of the BTCC grid. Then, at the end of 2018, the team ceased its operations completely.

“We had nothing to use name for anymore. We have sold the assets – or they are with other people now – and so we decided to wind it up. It is a shame. We looked at running cars in the TCR UK Championship under the Triple Eight name, but that didn’t happen. It is a shame, but that is just how things go,” Warren Scott said.'


Mark Nichols then established a company called Triple Eight Racing and Engineering Limited in 2018 that was then dormant for a couple of years (could this be the fan that bought the name?)
I've heard that this new company has a presence in e-racing. I wonder if the return to BTCC is connected to the video game coming in 2022?
