Matt told TG that he's expecting a tough season. "Everything is new on this car - we are starting from scratch. We've got four days of testing before the first race, so there's pressure on all of us to make the correct decisions with regards to set up.

"All credit goes to the boys though, they've been working flat out to get the car ready."

Neal will be joined by Gordon Shedden in a second Civic.
