    James Cole splits with Team HARD. with immediate effect.

    http://www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk/2013/07/james-cole-parts-company-with-hard/

    Seems interesting as Cole has a competition to win a drive in his BTCC car at the end of the year? guess that wont happen now.

    Not seen the news else where yet though.

    I have to admit I wasn’t expecting that, good to see he’s planning on coming back in 2014 though. HARD down to 2 cars now until/if Howard Fuller and Robb Holland show up.

    Tony has been making comments about dusting off his racesuit so maybe he will step in again for now?

    I was thinking the other day that the Insignias aren’t showing the same pace as the Passat has been

    James Kaye will compete in the S2000 Civic for AMD-Tuning for the remainder of the season.
    The VW Golf was damaged at Donnington and never regained its (lack of) speed.

    How is replacing the quicker Civic with the dog-slow Golf good news?
    Unless they bring an NGTC next year they may as well not bother running.

    In slightly off-topic news, I saw the Andrew Jordan Honda Civic on the M53 the other week, which I thought was random in that there was no action that I know of at Oulton Park (closest circuit?) at the time. I didn’t know that the cars are driven around in everyday life, either? I notice that he has won half the races either side of me seeing the car on the motorway, though! Looks like he is going to win the championship… I need to start watching BTCC again!

    They’re not allowed to drive the race cars on the road.

    Or do you mean it was in the truck/trailer?

    The only other explanation is someone has forked out a ton of money to get their road-worthy Honda Civic liveried up like Andrew Jordan’s.

    Eurotech do have a display car which is a road legal previous-gen Civic in the Pirtek livery, it could have been that but I don’t know why it would be on the M53?
