Caine rejoins BTCC grid with Team HARD Toyota
Former British GT champion Michael Caine will return to the British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton this weekend at the wheel of a Team Hard Toyota Avensis.
Caine will drive the Avensis previously raced in the category by Chris Smiley, who will switch to the Renault Clio Cup. Caine is due to finish the season with Team Hard.
Caine, 46, who last raced at Croft in 2013, said: “This opportunity came up, and it is interesting. The team has punched above its weight this season with Michael Epps and Jake Hill, and I hope I will be able to add some experience. Lots of people behind the scenes have helped to make this possible, and I will give it my best.”
Team Hard principal Tony Gilham said: “Having someone of Michael’s capabilities onboard will only help push us further forward.”
