Bradley Kent will start his third season in the TCR UK Touring Car Championship behind the wheel of the Hyundai Veloster N TCR, which his brother and two-time TCR UK champion, Lewis took to two race wins in 2022.
Bradley will switch from the Hyundai i30 N TCR which he has driven for the last two seasons, as he aims high for 2023.
Having endured a dismal 2022 season in which he suffered nine DNFs, Bradley looks to return to his 2021 form, where in his first year of TCR UK, he was in contention for the title right up until the final race of the year.
Fully focused on the new season as he stays with his family-run team Essex and Kent Motorsport, Bradley is confident that he can show the competitive nature of the Hyundai Veloster N TCR as well as return the team to the front of what is looking to be TCR UK’s most competitive field yet.
“2022 was a challenging year for me and it’s now fully behind me as I look towards 2023. I’ve reset my expectations for this season, as we look to extract the maximum out of the Veloster. Having a season of experience with the car means we can now work from a better base setup to go racing with,” explained Bradley.
“It’s clear that TCR UK has stepped up another level for 2023 with the new cars, team and drivers coming on board, however, our advantage is that we are not starting from scratch with a new car. We aim to hit the ground running and keep our DNFs to a minimum as I aim to be one of the front runners in 2023.”
The 2023 TCR UK Touring Car Championship season kicks off at Snetterton on the 300 on the 8th and 9th April, visit https://www.tcr-uk.co.uk/ for more info and how to get involved.
