British Touring Car Championship racer Rob Austin has been left without a teammate for this season at his own team after Mark Hazell put his plans to race in the series on hold.

Hazell had been due to race one of Rob Austin Racing’s Audi A4s this year, but was absent from the season opener at Brands Hatch last weekend. The team have now stated that he has notified them that due to personal reasons he will not be racing.

The team ran a single car at Brands Hatch for owner Austin, who lies fifth in the drivers' standings after three top eight finishes. He is now without a driver for the sister number 31 car.

“It is a real shame that such a great car that we have worked so hard on and proved to be a front runner won't be on the grid,” said Austin.

“We had some solid results at Brands and there is more to come from the car, it would be fantastic to get a team mate that could really help us in the team's championship.”
