FRESH LOOK FOR LLOYD’S BRISTOL STREET MOTORS-BACKED HYUNDAI
Dan Lloyd’s Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 TradePriceCars.com Hyundai will be sporting a fresh look for the remainder of the 2022 BTCC season, after the Yorkshireman received additional support from the motor retailer brand.
Bristol Street Motors has stepped in to help Lloyd’s bid to complete the campaign, after a 43G crash at Oulton Park left his participation in doubt due to the substantial damage sustained to his Hyundai i30 Fastback N.
The six-figure cost of repairing Lloyd’s vehicle so he could participate in the Croft event just two weeks later – where he astonishingly won two races – cast doubt over whether he would be able to complete the season, with the 30-year-old having to work hard over the summer break to try and bring additional partners onboard.
A fresh push for support saw a number of fans purchase special packages launched by Daniel, which has subsequently led to Bristol Street Motors agreeing a deal that will see it become a primary backer of the #123 Hyundai for the remainder of the season.
Daniel Lloyd, Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8 TradePriceCars.com Driver, said:
“The idea of not finishing a season after working so hard to get to where I am, and after the positive results we have had, was just heart-breaking. I am absolutely over the moon to be in a position where I am to compete in the final two rounds of the season. I’m incredibly grateful to Bristol Street Motors for having the faith to put their support behind me in this way, and hopefully we can end the season on a high and help the team to fight for the title.
“I am also extremely thankful to those fans who have purchased the packages I launched last week, as that support has been vital. There is no doubt that I have fire in my belly for the remaining meetings, and I am going to give my all in these last three races.”
Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Bristol Street Motors, said:
“Our values as a business strongly include talent, drive, energy, a positive attitude and strong character; Daniel displays all of these qualities in abundance. Coming back from a crash like he did and going on to win two races at the next event was a bold testament to that – it’s not something that everyone could do.
“Daniel deserves a chance to see the season out and show what he can do, and that’s what we’ve been able to offer him. We wish Daniel the very best of luck for the rest of the races!”
