British Touring Car driver Tom Onslow-Cole is aiming to stay in the series this season, despite Arena Motorsport's move into the World Touring Car Championship.
Onslow-Cole won four races with Arena in 2010 before switching to the AmD Milltek Volkswagen squad last season. He returned to Arena mid-way through the year, but will not be part of the team's WTCC attack.
"All my personal backing is in the BTCC and I really enjoy the championship," said the 24-year-old. "It's growing each year and I think it's the place to be."
The seven-time BTCC race winner confirmed he is talking to a number of teams about a 2012 deal.
"I'm still trying to raise budget and am speaking to teams," he added. "It's hard to keep an eye on the available seats and raise the money."
