Nic Hamilton joins team Hard. Racing
Team HARD. Racing has announced that Nic Hamilton will complete the squad’s 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship driver line up as its fourth and final driver.
Hamilton contested 24 rounds of the UK’s premier motor racing series in 2019, competing in a Motorbase-run Ford Focus, having previously joined the championship for four events in 2015 as a guest entry. Looking ahead to 2020, there is great excitement for what a second BTCC campaign might bring as Hamilton takes to the wheel of a ROKiT Phones and ABK Beer sponsored Team HARD. Racing Volkswagen CC.
The team has been working hard to develop the Volkswagen CC, which demonstrated an improvement in pace during the second half of the 2019 season. This improvement in performance was highlighted when the team took its first-ever BTCC win at Silverstone.
Hamilton’s Volkswagen CC is modified to allow him to compete with cerebral palsy. The car in its striking new ROKiT red livery will be heading to Spain for an intense test schedule alongside the team’s other two CCs driven by Jack Goff and Mike Bushell, ahead of the series’ official test day at Silverstone on 17 March.
