Base: Fleet, Hampshire
Team principal: John Welch Car: Proton Gen-2 Well, it certainly can’t be any worse for Welch this season. He has ditched the moneysapping independent engine development programme that has left the team scratching its head over the past three seasons. Instead, it has opted for the proven TOCA BTCC Swindon-derived powerplant. The chassis is good and Welch is a top 10 contender easily. With a more reliable package, he will be out to prove it this year.
