Ricky Collard made his BTCC debut at Rockingham in 2018 as a substitute for his father Rob at Team BMW.
The then 22-year-old joined Colin Turkington at the WSR-run team at Rockingham and the following round at Knockhill while Rob recovered from a concussion sustained as a result of two high-speed incidents at Snetterton in July.
Collard tackled his first full year in the Championship in 2022, with Toyota GAZOO Racing UK. After a tricky first half of the campaign, Collard seemed to find his groove in the latter part of the season and began to regularly take the chequered flag in the points-paying positions.
Returning with the Northwich-based squad for the 2023 season, Collard is aiming to build on his strengths in the Toyota Corolla GR Sport last year.
