Neate leaves Triple Eight/MG
Andy Neate has confirmed he’s split with the Triple Eight Race Engineering-run MG KX Momentum Racing team but insists he fully intends being on the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship grid in 2013.
Neate joined the newly-founded factory MG outfit at the start of the season – his third in the BTCC – and was expected to stay with it next year.
But in the past week he has parted company with the Triple Eight set-up, thereby leaving the way open for a prized seat alongside double Champion Jason Plato.
“I’m no longer with the Triple Eight MG team and that’s my decision. But I am 100 per cent committed to staying on the grid for 2013,” Aylesbury racer Neate told btcc.net.
However, he remained tight-lipped about his plans for next year.
