EXCELR8 moves BTCC programme to state-of-the-art Team Dynamics facility
An exciting collaboration for the 2024 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season has today (9 February) been announced after EXCELR8 revealed that its title-winning BTCC team has relocated to the Team Dynamics facility in Droitwich.
The multi-year partnership will see EXCELR8’s BTCC outfit – as well as the new Porsche Carrera Cup operation launched last year – relocate to the state-of-the-art factory in the first phase of a new partnership between the two teams.
The Droitwich facility is the base from which Team Dynamics secured multiple championships whilst running the works Honda programme, with the team amongst the most successful in BTCC history.
Whilst the BTCC and Porsche teams will now run from a new home, EXCELR8’s successful MINI CHALLENGE operation will continue to be based in the existing factory in Brome, Suffolk.
The move is part of a wider collaboration which will now aim to harness the combined expertise of both organisations as EXCELR8 prepares for the 2024 BTCC and Porsche Carrera Cup GB seasons.
Justina Williams, EXCELR8 Team Owner, said: “This is a very exciting time in the development of the EXCELR8 team, which – of course – includes our Team Partners, Drivers and Team Members.
“We have been evaluating a change of location to improve our logistics and fit in with our team for a couple of years but had struggled to find a suitable location. When I started to speak to Matt Neal about the Team Dynamics facility in Droitwich, it became clear that the move could offer far more than just a base for our operation, and could instead be the start of a new partnership.
“EXCELR8 will continue to run Hyundais under the EXCELR8 name with our Swindon-developed Hyundai engines, as they have offered us great support on what is a fantastic platform in the i30N and has been very successful.
“The aim is to bring additional skills and experience from Team Dynamics into the EXCELR8 fold to strengthen our BTCC programme. We will therefore be welcoming Barry Plowman on board to work alongside Spencer Aldridge, our highly-respected championship-winning Lead Engineer, and the wider EXCELR8 team.
“It is also key to state that we will continue to focus on our MINI operation, which will stay based in Suffolk, with our Porsche programme also relocating to Droitwich.”
Matt Neal, Team Dynamics Motorsport Managing Director, said: “Our philosophy is ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ and what could be better than marrying together two BTCC winning teams! As with EXCELR8, we are all about teamwork and efficiency, so we’ll be
sharing resources and knowledge – as well as our fantastic purpose-built premises, equipment, and logistics – to help them win further Championships during the coming seasons.
“This is a multi-year deal which will see us collaborate on many different projects and opportunities. We will also continue to operate in other championships as Team Dynamics, and will be running cars in the classic race world, endurance championships and GTs.
“There are exciting times ahead as we bring together all our experience and commercial relationships under one roof.”
