2016 saw Team HARD run by Tony Gilham’s operation, with three Toyota Avensis’ for Jake Hill, Michael Epps and Chris Smiley – subsequently replaced by Michael Caine – running under the RCIB Insurance Racing and TLC Racing banners respectively.

Gilham himself stepped into the breach from Rockingham, after Caine suffered a back injury at Knockhill.

Multiple points finishes were cause for optimism last season, and Gilham’s outfit will be looking for more this year with a trio of Volkswagen CCs back in the fold – cars the squad previously built in 2013.

Hill returns with TAG Racing and Epps is joined by Will Burns at Autoaid/RCIB Insurance Racing for 2017.

In 2018, the team ran as two teams of two facelifted Volkswagen CCs. Mike Bushell and Jake Hill formed the Trade Price Cars with Brisky Racing half of the garage in the first half of the season, with Hill scoring a best-yet result for driver and team with second at the Brands Hatch Indy opener.

From Snetterton, Hill was replaced by Dan Welch.

Jack Goff signed a last-minute deal to join Carl Boardley in the RCIB Insurance with Fox Transport half of the Team HARD. Racing stable.
