Hamilton completes Team HARD. Racing line-up and reveals striking 2023 livery
Team HARD. Racing has today (6 April) confirmed that British racing driver Nic Hamilton will complete its line-up for the upcoming Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, also revealing the Hertfordshire racer’s striking 2023 livery.
This will mark the 31-year-old’s fifth consecutive season in the BTCC, as well as his fourth with Team HARD, with whom he scored his first points in the series.
After a string of competitive showings last season, he will once again be looking to secure points and place himself in contention for the Jack Sears Trophy.
On the cusp of the third year for the CUPRA Leon and the second with Hamilton’s brake servo system fitted to the car, both he and the team are excited for the campaign ahead as they continue to build on and develop the technology.
“I am so grateful and blessed to be back on the BTCC grid with Team HARD. for 2023,” said Hamilton. “Continuity is everything and I feel right at home with the team, as I look to develop the improving pace I found in 2022.
“Both the car and team look to be in a great position going into this year and so I cannot wait to get started and work alongside both my returning and new team-mates.”
“We are thrilled to announce that Nic will be staying with our team for the upcoming 2023 season,” added Team HARD. Racing’s Managing Director, Tony Gilham commented. “This will be our third season with the CUPRA Leon, and we are excited to continue our partnership with Nic as we strive to improve and excel on the track.
“Nic has already been a tremendous asset to our team, and his dedication to developing his skills as a driver has led to significant progress over the past three seasons. We are confident that he will continue to be an integral part of our success in the upcoming season.
“As we look ahead, we remain focused on pushing the limits of our performance. We will continue to develop Nic’s brake servo technology, aiming to help him maintain consistency on the track he needs to have his best season yet.
“Having a stable driver line-up is essential for our success, and we are delighted to have Nic back in the driver’s seat for another year. Together, we are ready to take on the challenges of the 2023 season and strive for a strong season.”
