HAMILTON REMAINS WITH TEAM HARD. RACING FOR UPCOMING BTCC
Nic Hamilton has today (12 April) been confirmed as part of Team HARD. Racing’s Cupra Leon line-up for the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, as the 29-year-old embarks on his third campaign with the Kent-based squad.
Hamilton remains part of the team with which he achieved his best qualifying position, and first points-finish in the UK’s premier motorsport series, as he partners Aron Taylor-Smith in the second Yazoo with Safuu.com Racing machine.
“I am a fighter and did everything in my power to confirm a drive for this season,” said Hamilton. “I’d like to thank Team HARD. Racing and my sponsors, without them I would not be on the grid this year.
“Today is an incredibly proud moment for me personally, having overcome the recent challenges, I am more determined than ever to maximise the season and return to the grid with Team HARD.”
“It’s great that Nic has chosen to remain with the team for 2022,” added the squad’s Managing Director, Tony Gilham. “He has been a fantastic asset to the team thus far and his determination to develop as a driver has seen him make great gains over his time with us.
“Despite the fact that this will be our second season with the CUPRA Leon, the 2022 season poses a whole new challenge with the introduction of hybrid but it’s one we are looking forward to.
“Having continuity with our driver line-up during this period is vital so it’s great to have Nic back in the hot seat.”
