The 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season is set to conclude this weekend without having had a wet race, as early forecasts show cloud but no rain for Sunday's title decider at Brands Hatch.
Midlands-based Eurotech Racing has confirmed it will upgrade to the new Honda Civic Type R for the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
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.
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.
