Ingram with Speedworks' Toyota
Tom Ingram will make his BTCC debut this year, driving a Speedworks Motorsport’s Toyota Avensis. The 20-year-old dominated Ginetta GT Supercup in 2013, claiming his third title in four seasons. Ingram was undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the Ginetta championship, with 17 race victories, 39 podium finishes, nine pole positions and 21 fastest laps in 2012 and 2013.
I’ll be racing doorhandle-to-doorhandle with drivers I grew up watching on TV. There are some massive names in the championship, and that certainly won’t make for an easy year. – said Tom – I’ve got a great team behind me in Speedworks. I went up to the factory last week and they seem like a really good bunch of guys, clearly very skilled and experienced and just as importantly, extremely passionate about what they do. There’s a real family atmosphere and they actually remind me a lot of JHR Developments, with whom I won the Ginetta GT Supercup last year.
Ingram will test the Avensis today at the Silverstone track.
