The 30-year-old from Huddersfield spent four-bit part years in the UK’s premier motorsport series between 2010 – 2018 before becoming a staple of the championships line-up in 2021. The 2023 season will be his third consecutive full season campaign and one he will be looking to challenge for the Independents crown.

Bobby Thompson

Team HARD. Racing are pleased to confirm that 2022 Jack Sears Trophy Champion Bobby Thompson will remain with the team for the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Championship season after re-signing for the team. Thompson, an overall podium visitor and multiple Jack Sears Trophy winner returned to the series in 2022 piloting the teams Cupra Leon, something he will be looking to build on this term.

The 26-year-old has already spent four seasons in the UK’s premier Motorsport series after making his debut with Team HARD. Racing in 2018 at the wheel of the teams Volkswagen CC. However, 2022 was Thompsons breakthrough year in the sport, claiming 21 points finishes, his first overall podium and independent race win, and the 2022 Jack Sears Trophy.

Dexter Patterson

Team HARD. Racing are delighted to confirm that 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship rookie, Dexter Patterson will race for the team in 2023. Patterson, raced under the Laser Tools sponsored Infiniti Q50 in his debut season, alongside fellow Scot Aiden Moffat but after a successful test in the Cupra in November, Patterson was excited to build on last season in newer machinery.

Next season will be 19 year-old Patterson’s first season in front-wheel drive machinery after competing in International F4 championships and the British F3 series before moving up to the UK’s premier Motorsport series, the BTCC in 2022.

Team HARD. Racing is delighted to announce the signing of talented racing driver Jade Edwards for the 2023 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season. Jade will be joining the team from One Motorsport and is set to continue making her mark on the highly competitive touring car championship.

Jade is a rising star in British motorsport, having made her debut in the BTCC in 2020 before spending the last two seasons with BTC Racing. In 2022, she secured a top 15 finish at Brands Hatch and took a Jack Sears trophy win at Oulton Park, the first of her career.

Nicolas Hamilton

British racing driver Nic Hamilton is confirmed to drive for Team HARD. Racing’s Cupra Leon line-up for the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season. This will be Hamilton’s fifth consecutive season in the BTCC and his fourth with the team with which he scored his first points in the series in 2020.

Continuity is the aim of the game for Hamilton who will be taking to the wheel of the Team HARD. Cupra Leon for its third campaign in the UK’s premier Motorsport series and after a string of competitive showings last season, Hamilton will once again be looking to secure points and compete for the Jack Sears Trophy.

Jack Butel

The 26-year-old Jerseyman will be entering his fourth season in the UK’s premier Motorsport series after making his debut with Ciceley Motorsport in 2020. Prior to the move into the BTCC, Butel primarily competed in single-seaters and sportcar racing in series such as the British F4, Lamborghini Super Trofeo and British GT.

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 2022 we are continuing to develop the Cupra Leon which we introduced to the series in 2021 with proven race winner Aron Taylor-Smith behind the wheel. He will be pushed hard by BTCC podium sitter Bobby Thompson, Nicloas Hamilton and newcomer Will Powell. 

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 outright 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!”
