Simon had this to say
I am delighted to join up with Team-HARD. for the 2014 season in the VW Cup and grateful to Team-HARD. for providing me with this opportunity. I'm pleased to have such an experienced team and team mates to learn from and I really like the setup and approach that the team have - it is going to be a great year!
The VW Cup is a great series to get involved in and with the varied car choices available and the tracks that the series go to, it will make for some great racing and I want to get stuck in from day 1. The chance to get to race at Spa is something I can't wait to experience!
After my first season in single seaters in 2013, this will be my first experience of the VW Golf car. I will be working hard to get up to speed with it all as soon as possible and demonstrate that I am ready for this next step in my racing career.
Now that we have the structure and programme in place, I will be looking to concentrate on developing and maturing as a racing driver and ensuring a long and successful relationship with the team.
Gary team principal had this to say:
Simon is an exciting young talent and has shown his pace and ability recently in the Formula Ford final races at Brands Hatch. also importantly Simon has a very professional approach to his racing career and we believe fits in perfectly with the team and the rest of the driver line up. I'm sure Simon will develop very quickly and make people take notice from the outset.
