Another team to take full advantage of the opportunity presented by the new regulations. However, like many other teams boasting new machinery problems hounded the teams early attempts at testing – coping with engine and gearbox troubles when TCF spoke to Hughes during the series media day.

2010 Ginetta G50 Cup Chairmans' Cup moves up to the Touring Cars with Speedworks Motorsport for 2011.

The team, which will run in British GT alongside their BTCC campaign have the pedigree to run a competitive car, but with the typical teething problems ahead, and with a gentleman driver at the helm will face a challenge simply to score points.

Tony Hughes on……What he's expecting from 2011.
“Another big learning curve. I'm on the back foot at the moment because we've not tested car yet, we only got it two days ago.”

Verdict: Could struggle to score points, but will still improve through the season.
