Bruce Winfield returns for his third season in the TCR UK Touring Car Championship, switching to a Hyundai i30 N TCR full-time after debuting the car in the Snetterton Finale last year.
The three-time TCR UK race winner stays on with Area Motorsport for a third consecutive season, offering Bruce consistency and a familiar team atmosphere to give him a good solid start for the 2023 season.
This gives the 2020 Milltek Sport Civic Cup champion the chance to work from a solid base, as well as looking to improve on his second-place end-of-season finish in 2021 and his third-place end-of-season finish in 2022.
Having driven a CUPRA TCR DSG in 2021 and moved up to a CUPRA TCR in 2022, 2023 will be Winfield’s first full season driving the Hyundai, which was originally run by Target Competition in TCR Italy in 2022.
Speaking about his thoughts for the 2023 TCR UK Touring Car Championship, Bruce is eager to make a good start to the new campaign when the series gets underway at Snetterton in April next year.
“After two years of driving the CUPRA TCR DSG and the CUPRA TCR, I’ve made the switch to the Hyundai and I’m looking forward to making the move to the front end of the field in 2023. I’ve been with Area Motorsport for five years and I see no reason to make a change ahead of the new season,” explained Bruce.
“I finished second in 2021 and third in 2022, however, the level of competition has increased each year and my achievements mean more because of that fact. 2023 is looking like the toughest season yet in TCR UK and that’s a great sign of things to come for next season.”
Whilst confirmed for the full season, Bruce is looking for partners and sponsors to join him for the 2023 season as he embarks on his third year in the championship.
