Team Hard ex­pands to two cars in BTCC

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Team Hard will ex­pand to run two cars in the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship in 2016 – and could switch away from the Toy­ota Aven­sis model that it ran last sea­son.

Team prin­ci­pal Tony Gil­ham has al­ready signed Mini Chal­lenge grad­u­ate Chris Smi­ley ahead of the 2016 cam­paign and talks are on­go­ing over the other seat. “We are mov­ing in to the GT world this year too, so we are re­ally ex­pand­ing,” said Gil­ham. “We are look­ing at what cars we will use in the BTCC. We want to have two of the same type of cars, but they might not nec­es­sar­ily be the Aven­sis that we ran [for Kieran Gal­lagher] in 2015. We have got op­tions.”
