Hollamby retires from BTCC

Hollamby retires from BTCC: click to enlargeShaun Hollamby has retired from British Touring Car racing after making a one-off return to the series at Croft last weekend.

The AmD Milltek team boss contested the BTCC last year and stepped in to replace Tom Onslow-Cole, who has returned to the Arena Motorsport Ford Focus team, in his squad's VW for Croft.

After three solid runs, in which he scored a best finish of 13th, Hollamby has decided to leave the driving to someone else.

"That's me done with the driving now," he said. "I'm pleased with the job I did, but I think we'll do better with a younger driver.

"For the team it's best to have a driver come in and there are some good guys out there."

Hollamby confirmed he was speaking to several drivers about a deal for the rest of the season, and now has seven weeks before the next round at Snetterton to finalise a signing.
