Trade Price Cars Racing made the move into the BTCC with a two-car team in 2019. The award-winning Essex-based car dealer agreed terms to purchase two Audi S3s previously entered by AmD, along with the TOCA BTCC Licences (TBLs) required to compete in the series, with AmD continuing to run the cars as part of a two-year deal.
The new squad fielded ex-Formula 1 driver and Le Mans 24 Hours winner Mark Blundell alongside Jake Hill in the Audis, with the latter achieving the car’s breakthrough BTCC victory at Knockhill after being stripped of an on-the-road triumph at Oulton Park earlier in the campaign.
Bobby Thompson and former British GT champion James Gornall join the team in an all-new driver line-up for 2020.
