TCR UK Race winner Adam Shepherd is a late addition to the grid for the 2023 TCR UK Touring Car Championship, where he will be back with his Hyundai i30 N TCR.
Shepherd, who reunites with Rob Baker’s Area Motorsport for the second season in a row, is back and looking to add to his debut win at Donington Park, where he set the fastest-ever lap for a TCR car in the UK, to secure pole position and followed that up with his first win.
Having adapted quickly to his Hyundai, Shepherd was one of the drivers to watch in the second half of the 2022 season, where he was on course for the race one win at Castle Combe before a puncture robbed him of victory in sight of the finish line on the last lap.
Renewed and refreshed for the 2023 season, Shepherd is working hard to complete his budget to make sure that he can compete in all fifteen races and give himself the best chance to fight for the title.
Adam expressed his delight of being able to return to the championship ahead of the new season, which begins at Snetterton during the Easter weekend.
“We’re delighted to be able to start the 2023 TCR UK season and build on last year. We had a mixed 2022 with a few issues but showed great pace taking many podiums, a race win, and a lap record. We currently only have the budget for the first few rounds, but are looking to hit the ground running, push for wins, and work hard to secure more budget as we aim for the overall championship.”
Snetterton is the venue for the opening two rounds of the 2023 TCR UK Touring Car Championship this weekend, on the 300 circuit, visit https://www.tcr-uk.co.uk/ for more info and how to get involved.
