Tom Boardman makes BTCC return

Tuesday, February 16 2010

British racer Tom Boardman has announced plans to return to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for the first time in seven years behind the wheel of a SEAT Leon TSI.

Boardman, who competed for the SUNRED SEAT team in the FIA World Touring Car Championship last season, was a front-runner in the BTCC Production class competition between 2001 and 2003.

The UK and Spanish SEAT Cupra champion will pilot the same Leon that he raced in the 2009 World Touring Car Championship, which will be run by new team Special Tuning (UK). The squad also hopes to sign a second driver for its debut season.

"Although the decision to contest the BTCC came quite late, I'm really looking forward to 2010, as I have missed racing in the UK for a few years now," Boardman told btcc.net.

"It's going to be difficult with the number of experienced drivers that will continue in the BTCC this year, but we have set our targets high."

The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship visits Oulton Park on 5/6 June. Tickets are now on sale from £24 for adults, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0870 950 9000 or click on the link below.
