Edwards joins Team HARD. Racing for 2023
Team HARD. Racing has today (4 April) announced that Jade Edwards will be joining the Kent-based squad for the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
Having made her debut in the BTCC in 2020, Edwards contested her first full campaign the following year with BTC Racing – recently rebranded as One Motorsport – taking a maiden points finish at Snetterton.
The Ascot-born racer would stick with the squad in 2022, where she would take another top-15 finish at Brands Hatch before securing Jack Sears Trophy honours at Oulton Park, her first win in the category of her career to date.
Joining Team HARD. Racing for her third full season in Britain’s premier motorsport series, Edwards is eager to build on her previous successes this year, having previously raced with the squad in the 2019 Clio Cup.
“I’m really excited to be joining Team HARD. Racing for the 2023 BTCC season,” said Edwards. “I have been following the team’s progress for a while and I am impressed with their professionalism and commitment to success. I’m confident that I will be able to build on my experience from last year and work well with the team to achieve some great results on track.”
“We are thrilled to have Jade joining us for the 2023 BTCC season,” said Team HARD. Racing’s Managing Director Tony Gilham. “She is an exceptional driver with a lot of potential, and we believe she will be a great asset to our team. Both Jade and the team have come on a long way since we previously worked together and we are ready to provide her with the best platform to have her best season in the BTCC to date.
“As a favourite with the crowd, we know that our fans and partners alike will be thrilled with this signing and we look forward to working with Jade again and achieving some fantastic results on track.”
The 2023 campaign gets underway in just a few weeks’ time at Donington Park (22/23 April), while Brands Hatch prepares to host the annual Season Launch next week (12 April).
