The former two time British GT Champion, debuted in the championship last season and narrowly missed out on scoring his first championship points on multiple occasions, something he is looking to change this time out.

Tony Gilham

For me, there is nothing like the BTCC as a fan, a driver, a team owner or a businessman. At every level it ticks all the boxes. It’s a TV show with some great characters which is full of highs and lows. The marketing of the championship is fantastic with the fan base being second to none. You won’t find another championship like it. For 2019 we will be running our four Volkswagen CC’s which are proven machinery in the BTCC paddock. In 2018 the 2017 Clio Cup champion and the 2017 VW Cup champion joined the team demonstrating that we are one of the most exciting teams on the grid.

Realistically, all we want to do is to keep improving. We want to win every championship we compete in and we have done in the Britcar, VW Cup and British GT, yet the BTCC still eludes us. To win the BTCC would write our team in UK motorsport history. We are a young team that is pushing established manufacturers to the limit and our plan is to bring our partners along for the rise to the top of the UK’s most prestigious championship and beyond!”
