Base: Pershore, Worcestershire Team principals: Matt Neal and Barry Plowman Car: Honda Civic Type R Unlike previous seasons when it has been running new cars, Honda has had a decent chunk of pre-season testing – which will be a bonus for the crew. New RML parts will take time to adjust to, and there is a tweak in the engine that has proved problematic so far. However, the multiple titlewinning squad is at the top of its game when it comes to problem solving. It has the champion Shedden, who is at the height of his powers and shows no signs of slowing down, and the wily old hand of Neal in the sister car. Adding Neate in a third car seems a slightly odd move. He is yet to be proven at this level, but he is in the best place to learn, will have access to data from two previous champions, and he is in the best car on the grid.
