BTCC 2010 Preview: AmD Milltek – VW Golf

1 Mins read

#99 Shaun Hollamby

Another new team into the series are Essex based AmD Milltek, with Shaun Hollamby.

The team have a successful history in the Dunlop Sport Maxx Cup, and they won the overall title in 2009 with Simon Shaw in a Seat Leon.

For 2010, the team have purchased a Volkswagen Golf Mk 5 from the Baltic Touring Car series. The Golf will be the first VW in the Championship since 1989, when the multi class system was still in action. The team have completely rebuilt the car, and gained fans as they have kept them up to date with a blog on the official forum.

With no other similar cars to compare themselves against, the team could face an uphill task, but they will give it their best shot.

Season Prediction:

Another team facing a steep learning curve but will embrace the challenge and will gain fans along the way with their friendly, approachable way.

TCF Driver Prediction:

Hollamby: 16th. Will split the Forster Motorsport BMW's, will be the underdog and could secure a very popular race 3 podium result.
