Re: BTCC Donnington

From Autosport.com
"Team 48 have again put their British Touring Car Championship debut on hold after confirming that they will miss this weekend's triple-header at Donington Park.

The team, who were scheduled to run a pair of former A-Tech Alfa Romeo 156s for Jamaican Matthew Gore and former VW Cup racer Darrelle Wilson, missed the opening two rounds of the season while trying to secure a budget, and have now had to postpone their racing activities still further for financial reasons.

Team Director Luther Blissett told autosport.com: "Things had been looking quite positive, but we had our main sponsor decide to pull out, so we won't be at Donington. It's very disappointing, but I'm working hard to try and get something done so that we can get out and race as soon as possible.

"We have three races in May, Donington, Thruxton and Croft, and if we could get out for one of them then that would be brilliant. I'm very positive that we'll definitely be out for the second half of the season though."

Blissett set up the team this year with fellow former England footballers Les Ferdinand and John Barnes as well as motoring journalist Kevin Haggarthy."

Re: BTCC Donnington

Was watching some old vids of Alfas tearing it up on Youtube earlier (it was a quiet day at work) and altough the sport is exciting, i think sticking some hungry Alfas in the mix would greatly increase the fun. Shame it wont ever happen.
