AmD with AutoAid/RCIB Insurance Racing signed Josh Caygill for the final two race weekends of the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
Caygill competed for the West Thurrock-based team in the meetings at Silverstone and Brands Hatch, in place of Glynn Geddie, as team-mate to Rory Butcher in what is first foray into the BTCC.
The 29-year-old, from Holmefirth in Yorkshire, made the move into the BTCC having enjoyed a varied career to date having initially competed on two wheels – including two years racing in the highly-competitive British Supersport Championship.
Switching to four wheels in 2013, Caygill went on to compete in the Volkswagen Racing Cup and the DTM-supporting Audi Sport TT Cup before moving into sportscars in 2017 with Team WRT in the Blancpain GT Endurance Cup.
This season, he has been competing in the Blancpain Sprint Series in a Team Parker-run Bentley Continental GT alongside former BTCC racer Aron Taylor-Smith, with the pair taking victory in the Silver Cup during the British round at Brands Hatch back in May.
Caygill has had the opportunity to sample the MG – ironically the same car that Taylor-Smith raced in the series last year – during a day of testing at Snetterton.
