The BTCC?s only remaining manufacturer, Vauxhall, has announced its intention to leave the series at the end of 2009.
Vauxhall has said that its decision to leave the championship was 'influenced by the absence of other manufacturer-backed teams and financial prudence in the current global economic downturn,' adding that it would, 'keep an option open for a possible return to the sport in future years.'
The unusually early announcement has been made to allow Vauxhall?s BTCC partner, Triple Eight Racing, as much time as possible to organise its plans for next year?s series.
So that will leave us with only privateers?
