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.

Looking ahead to 2023, there is great excitement for what a third year in the CUPRA Leon and the second with Hamilton’s brake servo system fitted to the car will bring as both he and the team continue to develop and refine its technology.

Hamilton’s car has a number of new partners for the 2023 season.

Hamilton states, “I am so grateful and blessed to be back on the BTCC grid with Team HARD. for 2023. Continuity is everything & I feel right at home with the team, as I look to develop on the overall pace improvement I found in 2022.

Both the car and team look to be in a great position going into this year and so I cannot wait to get started and work alongside both my returning and new teammates.”

Hamilton remains with the team for the fourth consecutive season.
