No Third Car For Team Aon

1 Mins read

Following weeks of rumours who the third Team Aon driver would be, team principal Mike Earle has confirmed that the team will be putting all it’s efforts in to the two cars they currently run and will not be expanding to three.

In June Andy Constable, the team's commercial manager, told Motorsport News, “It was always our plan to put another car out there and we are in a position to do it now. We are in advanced talks with two drivers about the seat and we will conclude those shortly.”

Britcar driver Henry Taylor had been named as a favourite for the seat but Mike Earle hs now confirmed to Autosport: “We have to fully concentrate on what we do have, not on what we could have.”

The gas powered Ford Focus of Tom Chilton and Tom Onlsow-Cole have been front-runners this year with Onslow-Cole emerging as a title challenger as the series entered it’s mid-season break. Chilton also topped the times during the official test session at Snetterton yesterday.
