Hamilton, the first disabled driver in the long and illustrious history of the championship, has competed with the team as an invitational driver during the latter part of the season.

The 23-year-old has elected to miss the season finale to concentrate on finalising his programme for 2016, when he plans to contest a full season with the team in its Audi S3.

BTCC's dry season set to continue

Team Principal Jeff Smith has announced the team also intends to run a third Honda Civic Type R next season, with all three cars running the latest NGTC specification chassis parts from RML. The first car is already underway and will be out of production in the next few weeks, with the other two cars arriving before Christmas.

Alain's on the Menu for Brands finale

Former double BTCC champion Alain Menu will return to the series this weekend after it was confirmed by Team BMR RCIB Insurance that he will replace the injured Warren Scott.

Scott suffered two fractured vertebrae as a consequence of his high-speed accident during free practice at Silverstone last month, which forced him out of the event.

The Team BMR boss has since been to see the highly acclaimed sports injury specialist, Brian Simpson, in a bid to make a return for the Brands Hatch finale. After receiving laser treatment Scott visited a consultant at the John Radcliffe Hospital on Friday, where it was unfortunately decided that he must remain in a back brace for a further six weeks.
