Adding his name to the ever-increasing list of competitors on this year’s TCR UK grid is Russell Joyce, a familiar name in the paddock having been a VW Racing Cup Competitor since 2016 and whose company is the official supplier of graphics, signs and car liveries for the championship.

For the seventh year in succession, Joyce will enjoy the support of Power Maxed Racing, a team that has plenty of experience of running TCR machinery having engineered five cars for last year’s UK campaign.

The Chelmsford-based businessman will drive a CUPRA TCR displaying his company’s head-turning livery. On making the announcement of his intention for 2022, Joyce said:

“Over the past six years, I have been developing my race craft with Power Maxed Racing. Working with one of the UK’s leading race teams has shown great benefits and delivered plenty of silverware to date, which I hope will continue into 2022.

“It’s incredibly exciting to be competing this season in top-flight motorsport. This next chapter may well prove to be my most challenging yet.  Whilst the cars are equally matched with the TCR balance of performance criteria applied, selecting and refining the correct set-up from the thousands available will be paramount. I’ve been testing the CUPRA and I’m pleased to report that every outing is showing improvements.

Power Maxed Racing Team Manager Martin Broadhurst is delighted to see Joyce make the move to the TCR UK championship and commented:

“Everyone at PMR is excited to see Russell continue his association with us, as he steps up to TCR UK this year and we have no doubt he will continue to collect the silverware. Russell certainly has the pedigree necessary to challenge others on the TCR grid and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do at the opening round at Oulton Park on 18th April.”
