Motor Sport News - - Btcc Preview: The Teams -

Base: Bunt­ing­ford, Hert­ford­shire Team prin­ci­pals: War­ren and Vicki Scott Car: Subaru Levorg There is a great deal of buzz sur­round­ing the Subaru project in the BTCC, and not all of it is com­ing from the on­look­ers – those at the heart of the project are fizzing ahead of the new sea­son too. The dy­nam­ics of the car, al­lied to its low-slung boxer con­fig­u­ra­tion pow­er­plant, mean that the num­bers the team crunched be­fore they’d even started the build process had them highly op­ti­mistic. But there is no sub­sti­tute for track run­ning, and that is some­thing the team will be des­per­ately short of come the open­ing meet­ing of the sea­son at Brands Hatch. De­spite that, the brains trust in the back­room staff is huge, and Plato and Turk­ing­ton know what they want from a car. Scott will again race for his own team, while Cole has an­other chance to shine in a great BTCC car – re­turn­ing to his pre­ferred rear-wheel-drive too. The buzz is here, and so is Honda’s great­est threat for the ti­tle.
