Thompson back in the driving seat for season climax
Team HARD. Racing has today (19 September) announced the return of Bobby Thompson to the wheel of a Cupra Leon for the conclusion of the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
The news comes after a number of the team’s loyal partners helped Bobby and the team to reunite, as they now gear up for a competitive comeback at the remaining Silverstone and Brands Hatch GP events.
Despite the financial issues faced, the team has noted Bobby’s unwavering professionalism and dedication, both during his absence and since.
An integral part of the team, Thompson’s return injects a fresh burst of energy and expertise into the squad, elevating spirits even further after the Kent squad enjoyed competitive displays at both Knockhill and Donington Park recently.
Team Owner, Tony Gilham expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “Bobby’s commitment to Team HARD. Racing has been inspiring, and we have sorely missed his valuable contribution off-track since the summer break. We are delighted to have him back and believe that this reunion will propel us to even greater heights as we look to put the events of Donington behind us.
“I also can’t thank everyone who is continuing to support us enough. It has been a really challenging season off-track with some seriously bad luck on it. So, a big thank you to our partners, staff and supporters for their continued support.”
Rounds 25, 26 and 27 of the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship will take place at Silverstone on 23/24 September, before the season concludes with the Brands Hatch GP finale on 7/8 October.
