Yes Hughes was going to replace his MG with an ex-Pinkney Integra. When that fell through, Pinkney planned to run the Integra at Donington with Motorbase

Thought so.

I remember the old Forum on the BTCC website had a topic dedicated to the 2000 Season and how the number of entries that year could have been bigger. I think it mentioned Aiello being linked to Honda just so he'd get to defend his title.

Also mentioned I think were a semi-works Nissan effort and a possible return for Nettan Lindgren.

2003

The Autosport BTCC preview mentioned a possible return of the HTML Peugeots in the Production Class.

Luke Hines tested one of Gary Ayles' Alfas before signing for Barwell.

Plato was due to return in one of Gary Ayles' Astras as Gavin Pyper's team-mate but that fell through.

Hyla Breese was due to do a full season with John Batchelor's team.

I already mentioned Beacon Motorsport looking to acquire the ex-Atomic Kitten MGs.

I think so and possibly Moen too.

I'm going to start including tests that never went anywhere since James Thompson tested for at least three teams (including Tempus) in 2009 before replacing Shedden at Team Dynamics.

Jenson Button guesting with Team Dynamics though there's some conjecture as to what year that was supposed to be.

2006

Andy Neate was supposed to run in the Daniels Motorsport Astra again in the 2006 finale.

Also, DW Racing looked into running two Astras with Oli Wilkinson in one car and an unnamed Scottish driver in the other.

Shane Lynch and Eclipse Motorsport looked into entering the 2007 BTCC.

Darrell Wilson (pre-Team 48) was rumoured to be entering an Alfa Romeo that same year.

Michael Vergers and Warren Hughes were both in the frame to be Paul Radisich's team-mate at Ford in 1996 until Steve Robertson got the drive.

Vergers also missed on joining Ford for the 1997 RAC Tourist Trophy and the 1998 BTCC.
