MATT Neal reckons new team-mate Dan Cammish "ticks all the boxes" as Halfords Yuasa Racing gun for British Touring Car Championship glory in 2018.

Two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Cammish, 28, replaces Gordon 'Flash' Shedden who has left the championship.

“This is a great signing for us," said Neal. "Dan has been very successful in every championship he has competed in over the years, is incredibly difficult to pass and knows how to defend a position.

"We needed someone with his standing to help the team to challenge for overall honours in all three championships this year.

"The goal for 2018 is to come away with as much silverware as possible. I’m really looking forward to him being my new team-mate and to us battling away together this season.

"One thing is for sure with Dan, he will be able handle himself in this highly-competitive championship.

"He conducts himself with professionalism and is good on camera, he really ticks all the boxes as a replacement for Flash and I wish him all the best for the coming season. It's great to have him on board.”

Cammish said: "I have my hopes set high for 2018 and lifting the overall driver's crown would be a dream come true."

The new season launches on March 27 at Donington Park.
