If the SCV8 Series had gone ahead, the following would have been potential entries:

Team Dynamics Racing/Jaguar X-Type
Team Varta/Vauxhall Vectra
Vic Lee Motorsport/Peugeot 407

Wasn't Andy Rouse strongly linked to a works Mercedes for the 1990 DTM, after he lost his Kaliber backing in the BTCC?

He did a few rounds in an Abt TT in 2000 - that was a bit of a shambles - did that put him off going back for 2001?

I just know Jimmy T was originally going to switch to the DTM for 2001 but that fell through and he ended up returning to Vauxhall in the BTCC.

Reid also considered switching to the DTM before joining MG.

https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/archive/article/january-1994/58/korea-prospects - It says Hyundai were seriously considering entering a works team in the 1992 BTCC.

Not quite what it says (to be pedantic).

'there was talk that Hyundai was considering a works British Touring Car Championship programme' - was the talk in the company, or outsiders?

It doesn't say, it just briefly says there were talks and that's about it, presumably it was the company.

I guess it may have been the company - but I suspect equally as likely a journalist's talk to generate column inches.

I could quite easily run a story today and mention that there is talk about Kia and Volvo in the BTCC. Problem is, most of it is in the rumours thread(s) here.

At the bottom, it mentions Roberto Ravaglia instead of Winkelhock as a possible BMW driver for 1993, as well as another mention of Hyundai.

The ETCC originally looked into adopting the BTC-Touring regs before switching to Super 2000.
