Boardley returns for Brands Hatch Finale
Team HARD. Racing has confirmed that Will Powell will miss the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship finale at Brands Hatch next weekend (8/9 October) and be replaced by series returnee Carl Boardley.
Boardley will drive the Autobrite Direct with JourneyHero Cupra Leon to partner Jack Sears Trophy leader Bobby Thompson.
Boardley, who secured a points finish on his last visit to the Brands Hatch GP circuit, is looking forward to returning to the championship.
“After deciding on a sabbatical from the Championship as a whole for 2022, Tony [Gilham] and the guys at Team Hard knew that a tempting offer for a ‘one off’ would always be greeted positively!
“Having seen the Championship from the sofa so far has been strange but I am looking forward to the Brands Hatch rounds with the sole aim of trying to enjoy it.
“Obviously, I have ties with the team so seeing some familiar faces will be good and fitting in will be seamless.
“Whilst I aim to have a smile on my face throughout the weekend, having tested the car briefly a few days back and dusted the cobwebs off I’m ready to do battle!”
