Hill completes HARD line up

Jake Hill will continue with Team HARD for his second full season in the British Touring Car Championship.

Hill will partner his 2016 teammate Mike Epps and rookie Will Burns at HARD, who will run a three car team again after being unable to obtain a fourth TOCA license.

Hill finished 2016 17th in the championship with a best finish of fifth at Silverstone.

“Last season I learned a huge amount and felt we made some strong progress,” he said. “We worked really well as a team and it’s really significant having continuity with the crew and the partners. It’s great to be racing the Passat CC, with the latest RML equipment, as I think it will be strong at lots of circuits.”

The 22-year-old had previously been aiming to switch to Motorbase this season, but missed out on the deal.

Now he’s focusing on preparing for the upcoming season, and will soon begin testing the Passat in the hopes of another strong year.

“Jake was really strong last year and got the absolute maximum from the car,” said team principal Tony Gilham. “The team worked really well with him and with the new cars I’m confident all three of our drivers will be in the mix.”

Hill is aiming for regular points finishes and to be competitive from the first race at Brands Hatch in April.
