Dan Welch to test for Team HARD
Team HARD will give Dan Welch the chance to sample the latest RML specification NGTC car at the upcoming mid-season Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship test at Snetterton (11/12 July).
Welch will add valuable experience and knowledge as the team look to build on a relatively inconsistent start to the season. The Kent-based squad plan to run through a development programme with various drivers at the Norfolk track over the next two days.
“Tony and I have been in communication throughout the last few seasons and have helped each other out on numerous occasions,” said Welch. “The time felt right to jump in the seat to see what the new RML cars feel like and to hopefully provide some valuable feedback to the team.
“We have always remained interested in the BTCC and will never rule out a return so jumped at the chance to get back involved for the day. What the future holds is unknown but let’s see how the test goes and build from there.”
Tony added, “Dan is a very experienced racing driver so we are looking forward to seeing what he can add to what we are already learning about what is essentially a new car following the winter developments.
“He has proven over the years that he has the pace to compete at the front and so will be very interesting to hear his thoughts and feedback this Thursday at the test. He has good knowledge of engineering and has ran his own team for years so the knowledge should be very good for the team as a whole.”
