JamSport Racing’s TCR UK line-up has expanded once again, with the addition of former Ginetta GT4 Supercup champion Adam Shepherd, who will make his championship debut this year driving a Hyundai i30 N TCR.

Shepherd joins the already announced Simon Tomlinson and Ant Whorton-Eales in the Northamptonshire-based team’s line-up. Having impressed during the official pre-season test and media event held at Brands Hatch recently, the championship’s latest recruit set signalled his intentions by topping the timesheets, despite it being his first outing in the car.

Shepherd admits he’s excited to be joining such a competitive championship with such a competitive team, who will be running three drivers in three different makes of car this season.

“The partnership between JamSport Racing and Shepherd Motors brings an exciting element to the campaign, as we’ve known each other a long time.

“After previously winning four championships in FWD and RWD cars, as well as achieving success in the Ginetta Supercup rounds I entered, I’m looking forward to a new challenge in TCR UK and what is shaping up to be a huge year for the championship.

“The first outing in the Hyundai was at the recent media day and even having only had the car a few days before, I quickly felt at home driving it. It’s quite a bit different to what I am used to, being my first time in a FWD car on slicks but it was great fun and I was pleased with the lap times.

“We’re currently working on the budget for a full season and hoping that with some good results and the level of attention the championship is likely to attract, we’ll be able to draw in enough support to see the year out. I can’t wait to get started and see how things compare against a very strong grid in 2022.”
