Paul O'Neill eyeing BTCC Independent's title in Chevrolet Cruze

Wednesday, March 23 2011

Fans' favourite Paul O'Neill has his sights firmly set on the 2011 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship Independent's title, after confirming that he will return to the BTCC this season in a front-running Chevrolet Cruze.

O'Neill has already tested the Cruze - which powered Jason Plato to the overall driver's title with RML in 2010 - with the Tech Speed team after the squad purchased a car for John George.

However, the Widnes racer is now delighted to confirm that, thanks to a new sponsorship package from GoMobileUK.com, he will be lining up alongside George in similar Chevrolet machinery.

"I'm over the moon that the deal has finally been done," said O'Neill. "In testing, the Chevrolet has been everything I expected from a title winning car and now I just need to make the most of the time available in the car before we get to Brands Hatch for the season opener.

"There is a lot of potential for us to explore in the Cruze, but this season we have to be targeting consistent top six finishes and race wins. We don't have the big budgets of some of the top teams when it comes to the overall championship, but there is no doubt that my sights are firmly on fighting for the Independent's title to reward Tech-Speed, Go Mobile and Sunshine.co.uk in putting the deal together."

The 2011 BTCC title chase gets underway at Brands Hatch next weekend (2/3 April). Discounted advance tickets are now on sale from £25 for adults, with free entry for children aged 12 and under.
