Team HARD. Boss Tony Gilham Commented on the signing “When a triple champion enters the room as down to earth and humble as Adam you know you have to do something with him. Like all deals it all comes down to the nitty gritty, but like Team HARD. Adam has a great family and support network around him which helped get it over the line. I am very excited to see what he can do in the Super Cup, the BTCC Package can be quite daunting, but I think when Adam gets behind the wheel he will do what come naturally.”

Adam will be entered into the Pro category and will compete with the likes of Ben Green, George Gamble and Callum Pointon who won the Pro class and the overall championship.
Adam said on signing for Team HARD. Racing “I’m very excited to have signed with Team HARD in 2018 and feel ready to take on the challenge of Ginetta Supercup. We’ve put in the HARD work over the past three years taking 3 consecutive championships, over 20+ wins and 95% of the rounds entered on the podium across both FWD and RWD single make disciplines. Moving up to the Supercup is going to be a big step, being live on ITV as well as being featured on the BTCC support package along with very tough competition, however, with a great team, sponsors and family behind me, I think we can give it a very good shot. I now cannot wait to get out in the car and start testing ready for the first rounds on 7th & 8th April at Brands Hatch, a dream a long time coming!”.
