“It was fantastic to see the team testing at Catesby Tunnel in search for those ever-crucial marginal gains.”
Last week we welcomed Maidstone-based Team HARD Racing to Catesby Tunnel for their Cupra Leon’s first run out of 2023. The team have competed in The British Touring Car Championship since 2015, securing their first victory in 2019 at Silverstone.
The team arrived off the back of a successful 2022 season in which Bobby Thompson won the Jack Sears Trophy. Bobby was the only driver to put the 2023 car through it’s paces at Catesby Tunnel. However, he was joined on the day by recent signings Dan Lloyd, a multiple race winner who joined the team this year from Excelr8 Motorsport and Dexter Patterson, who spent last season at Laser Tools Racing.
It was fantastic to see the team utilising the controlled, yet real, conditions of Catesby Tunnel in the search for those ever-crucial marginal gains. The season gets underway at Donnington Park on 22nd April 2023, in the circuits first return to the series since 2002. We wish Team HARD Racing all the best for the season ahead!
