BTCC Entries/Rumours that never came to be
This can include non-starters as, technically, that makes them entries that never actually raced.
This can also include tests that never went anywhere.
I shall start with GR Motorsport trying and failing to run an ex-John Shields Motorsport Alfa 147 for Gordon Shedden in the 2002 Season.

Things I've heard...
- "Ash to Australia's V8SC" (but they said that last year too)
- Jake Hill to BMW (Tom Oli's seat)
- Jaguar and Mini could be on the grid (NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.. That'd be too good to be true.)

Dave Brodie was supposed to do another season with his 4x4 Sapphire. Also Pinkney was entered in his Sapphire for the British GP meeting
Prodrive were going to run works Mercedes in the last few rounds, with Tim Sugden and possibly Bernd Schneider. The other Gareth Howell was entered in his Sapphire. Also Guy Povey was supposed to do the TOCA Shootout
Ian Flux was going to compete in an ex works Peugeot. Philippe Gache and Johnny Cecotto were on the entry list for the World Cup supporting TOCA Shootout.
Slim Borgudd was on the entry list in an RD run, privately entered Mazda 323 under the Team Magic banner

David Coulthard was linked to a move to the BTCC with the Mazda works team in 1994, he would have partnered Matt Neal with Matt's father Steve Neal running the team and Noel Edmonds sponsoring them. If that had worked out, who would have stood in for Ayrton Senna at Williams after his death at Imola?

Should have put this in the History Section.
