After a successful 2019 season, Tim Docker will return to the Dunlop Britcar Endurance Championship to defend his Class 4 Title.
The Maximum Motorsport driver clocked up 14 podiums and 3 class wins, taking the 2019 Class 4 Title by over 100 points and finishing second in the overall Championship by just 34 points. Tim was the only single driver entry in the top 10 general classification, having driven the full duration of every race himself without the support of a pro driver.
Alongside returning to the Britcar Championship this year, Docker will also compete in the TCR-UK series which has been growing in popularity since it was taken over by Maximum Motorsport in early 2019. Tim’s Golf is a TCR-spec car so he will be at home driving it in the series.
Tim Docker said:
“2019 was a great team effort and I’m looking forward to working with the same guys in 2020. Last year half the Britcar grid was Class 4 and from 4 class categories in 2020 I would expect the same scenario to be repeated. It’s the toughest category, with some great pro drivers thrown in, including Max Coates and Martyn Byford last year. We’re ready but under no illusions. It won’t be easy to defend the Class Title and, consequently, the overall championship is tougher still.
Stewart has high hopes for TCR-UK this year, which will be a re-introduction to sprint racing for me after 2 seasons of endurance only. It’ll be interesting and I am pleased to be able to support Stewart and the series.”
Maximum Motorsport owner, Stewart Lines added:
It’s great to see Tim coming into 2020 with Maximum Motorsport. Tim had a great season last year, narrowly missing out on the Britcar title so hopefully 2020 will see him do one better and also flourish in the TCR-UK series. We begin testing in March ahead of the first two meetings.”
