Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship team Handy Mo­tor­sport has of­fi­cially re­branded as HMS Rac­ing ahead of the squad’s maiden cam­paign with an Alfa Romeo.

HMS Rac­ing Ltd was formed back in 2011, when Handy Mo­tor­sport com­peted in the Leg­ends Cars Na­tional Cham­pi­onship, but the team con­tin­ued to trade un­der its more widely known Handy name.

With the switch from the team’s Toy­ota Aven­sis to a newly con­structed Alfa Romeo Gi­uli­etta for next year, the team has de­cided to al­ter its name.

Team prin­ci­pal Si­mon Belcher ex­plained: “Next sea­son marks a big change for the team with the in­tro­duc­tion of the Alfa Romeo so it re­ally is the ideal time to make the re­brand to HMS Rac­ing. HMS ac­tu­ally stands for Handy Mo­tor Sport and when we founded the lim­ited com­pany in 2011 we short­ened our name.”

HMS Rac­ing will of­fi­cially un­veil its Alfa Romeo Gi­uli­etta BTCC car at the an­nual Au­tosport In­ter­na­tional Show in Jan­uary.
