He was not among the front-runners in his aged Honda Civic, and was not among the top 10 non-works drivers to finish until race 7 at Donington Park. He ran 10th for part of race 6 at Rockingham, before spinning out. His first points came in race 13 at Croft, which was stopped early due to rain.

His best result came at Silverstone during a wet race 3, in conditions that he thrives in. He finished 8th overall, passing among others both Tom Chilton and Gordon Shedden in the new style Hoda Civic run by Team Dynamics. Michael's season was constantly hampered with gearbox problems causing various race retirements when top 10 results were looking certain.

Since his season in the BTCC in 2008 Michael has been hard at work at college obtaining diplomas in both sports remedial massage and personal training as well as a brief stint in the Ginetta GT supercup in 2011 with Beacon racing competing a 3 rounds.

Racing history

After a career in karts (including two Scottish titles in 2002), Doyle contested the 2004 Renault Clio Winter Series. From 2005 to 2007 Doyle raced in the full Renault Clio Cup, which supports the BTCC. He finished 4th overall in 2006, and took a win at Snetterton in 2007. He also took a victory in the equivalent Italian series, in a race at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.
