"I'm over the moon to have been selected for the drive with B-K and would like to say a big thank-you to Bob Bach and Marcus Haselgrove for their belief in me, also to John Doonan and everyone at Mazda for their support and backing. I realise this is a fantastic opportunity and with 2007 promising to be the most competitive so far I can't wait for the season to start. My new team mate Jamie, is someone I've raced against and become friends with over the last 2 years and I believe as a partnership we can compete with anyone.
Mazdaspeed and B-K Motorsports have worked hard to put a great package together and I'm looking forward to working closely with them and their partners, Lola, AER and Kumho, all of whom I have worked with over the last 5 years. These companies have all been involved in my racing career and it makes it extra special for me to be working with them again."
