Goodyear Touring Car Trophy driver Andy Wilmot has unveiled the new livery for the Maximum Motorsport CUPRA TCR he’ll be driving for the rest of the season, ahead of his return to the grid for rounds eight and nine at Oulton Park on Saturday 17th July.
Having tested the car at Donington Park recently, Andy was encouraged by the outcome and feels ready to make his return to the series and get amongst the front-running action that the Goodyear Touring Car Trophy has delivered in spades so far this year.
With a wealth of saloon car racing experience behind him, the 2020 Volkswagen Racing Cup Champion is hoping it won’t take him long to get up to speed in the CUPRA and will use the rest of the 2021 season as a pre-curser to a full campaign next year.
“I’m excited to get back out in a competitive car again, in what’s proving to be a highly competitive series and I’m happy to admit that I’m treating the remaining six rounds as a glorified test.
“I managed test the CUPRA for a day, but appreciate it’s going to take more tests and more seat-time to be able to run at the sharp end of the field. There’s a lot of quick lads out there this year and they’ve been driving TCR cars for longer than I’ve been.
“As for the new livery, I’m delighted with the way it looks, so all credit must go to Russell Joyce at Joyce Design for doing such a great job. I now can’t wait to get the car on track and in front of the spectators!”.
