Owy out of Rockingham RoundsRCIB Insurance Racing and Team HARD. are sorry to announce that unfortunately, even though we had a deal in place for the next BTCC rounds at Rockingham, Paul Oâ€™Neill will be unable to return to the seat of one of our Team HARD. Vauxhall Insigniaâ€™s due to ITV commitments. That doesn't mean that we won't get to see him in action again in 2013.
We spoke to Paul numerous times to try to make this happen but it just wasnâ€™t possible for the Rockingham rounds. Both the team and Paul wanted to pair up again to show once again the pace of the Insignia and also to achieve the results that we both feel are possible. Knockhill didnâ€™t go exactly to plan but the main thing was that Paul was reintroduced to the BTCC fans with Team HARD. and we continue to do everything we can to keep him racing. We have introduced a competition on www.owhard.co.uk to assist with a long term drive with the team.
At this early stage, we are very close to putting a package together for Paul Oâ€™Neill to have a full time seat with us for 2014. The amount of positives that came from Knockhill and the interest despite what happened was phenomenal and we would love to continue the partnership moving forwards.
