TEAM DY­NAM­ICS

Motor Sport News - - Btcc Preview: The Teams -

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.
