British Division Vauxhall introduces Insignia in the BTCC fight

Vauxhall has a lot of current models and very diverse. 13 different models from 10 producers and 27 fielded cars are the numbers the British Touring Car Championship is proud of. Soon the Insignia four-door saloon will join the group as well.
The British division of General Motors has a lot of representation by six drivers' titles, six teams' titles and eight manufacturers' titles. This year the NGTC-spec Insignia will participate at the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship aside the Thorney Motorsport team.
The Vauxhall team is very optimistic because they feel in shape and very confident because they are the ones that create the cars and their budget allows the engineers to experiment and improve everything.
Apparently Thorney will decide of it will build its own engine or in the other case it will use the spec engine package given by series organizers TOCA. Several changes to the aerodynamic drag coefficient will be made to the larger Insignia.
