British Touring Car racer Dave Newsham is considering switching teams after testing a Hard-run Volkswagen Passat at Croft.
Newsham finished 10th in the BTCC standings with a Speedworks Motorsport-run Toyota Avensis, but took the opportunity to test the new-for-2013 Passat.
"I was invited to test it and I'd only driven one NGTC car so it was good to drive another one," he said.
"It was damp, but the car handled well."
Newsham has not confirmed his 2014 programme, but is expecting to remain in the BTCC.
"I've got a few options and I'm fairly confident I'll be on the grid," added the two-time BTCC race winner.
"It's got to be with the best team I can afford. I want to move forward."
Newsham confirmed he is also still in discussion with Speedworks, which finished two spots ahead of Hard in the teams' championship this year.
