Aron Smith finished 2nd in the Clio Cup last year so he has potential, Griffin only seems to be there for his sponsorship though (he’s the MD of Addison Lee).
Regarding the car, it should still be competitive (to begin with anyway) but as the season progresses I expect the S2000 cars to fall down the field. Even though the Focus has an NGTC engine, it has smaller brakes and tyres than the full NGTC specification cars. How old are those Focus’ (Foci?) now? Did Arena build new cars for 2010, if not then the Motorbase cars date back to 2009.
