Hampshire racer Rob Collard hopes experience will be on his side as he confirms he’ll continue with West Surrey Racing for a tenth season.
Collard will once again be aiming for the title after leading the points for the majority of the second half of the 2016 season.
“It’s fantastic to be staying with WSR,” Collard said. “They have a pedigree like no other team in the BTCC and the level of professionalism and preparation that has been key to their success is clear to see in everything they do.
“This will be my 10th season with the team and I plan to use that continuity to my advantage. I took my first BTCC win and my first podium with WSR and now my aim is to take my first title with them too.”
Collard may be hoping for continuity but neither of his 2016 teammates will be joining him in the WSR garage. He will be joined by Andrew Jordan and the returning Colin Turkington.
