Despite the season being behind closed doors to fans and prominent rivals taking a step back this year, Team Dynamics was always fully committed to competing in the BTCC this season.
"I never had any doubts," explained Dan Cammish. "I knew obviously we've all taken as many precautions as we can. I generally tried to keep myself distanced as if we get [coronavirus] now, we're in trouble so we're taking even more precautions than usual and you need to wrap yourself in cotton wool a little bit, but I never contemplated not taking part. As long as we social distance, abide by the rules and have a bit of common sense as well when it comes to what we're doing, we should be okay."
Matt Neal echoed that stance: "It never crossed my mind to not race because of COVID. I had faith in [BTCC Series Director] Alan Gow putting a calendar together and us getting back to it. I'm not taking it glibly or anything, as this is obviously very serious. I wasn't taking anything for granted but I was always hoping to go racing this year. They've done an amazing job to get a nine-meeting championship. Okay, we're going to be running a bit later [in the year] and it's going to be intense - August is pretty much written off for a lot of people but we're racing."
Responsibility for implementing logistical changes in the Worcestershire-based squad this season has fallen on Team Dynamics manager James Rodgers, who was tasked with producing a 78-page document assessing the risks of a return to racing as well as organising how the scaled-down outfit will tackle events.
"The team has been sensible - in our social lives we aren't all out and about, putting ourselves at risk because we realise we've got a responsibility to the team so we're in a bit of a social bubble at work," Rodgers said. "We've had to really seriously think about who we bring and what we do. We're probably about six people down on what we would normally bring. The logistical side of things falls on my head, even down to who goes in what cars to and from the hotel."
