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.

Double BTCC champion Alain Menu says the British Touring Car Championship is "a little different" to when he last won the title in 2000, and is disappointed not to have scored more points on the opening Brands Hatch weekend, after running consistently in the top ten.

Two days to go...

...and two time champion Alain Menu is catching up with old friends.
