Covers off at Simpson Racing
The covers came off Simpson Racing’s Honda Civic Type R this morning, 12 January, at the Autosport International Show inside Birmingham’s NEC.
Driver Matt Simpson returns to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for 2017, having switched from Speedworks Motorsport to Team Dynamics backing in Britain’s premier motor sport series.
Simpson entered the BTCC in 2016 off the back of multiple title successes in the European Hot Rod Championship and Quaife Intermarque Championship. He got off to a good start by tallying a point on his debut weekend at Brands Hatch Indy behind the wheel of his Honda Civic Type R, adding to that with a brace of 13th placed finishes a month later at Thruxton.
Those results earned Simpson 15th spot in the Independents’ Trophy standings and third in the chase for the Jack Sears Trophy, with a victory in the latter in the Brands Hatch GP season finale underscoring his progress.
