New Cupra set for TCR UK debut

The CUPRA Leon Competición will appear on track in TCR UK for the first time in 2022 after JWBird Motorsport became the latest team to confirm an entry for the new campaign.

The team will run a car for Matthew Wilson as he makes the switch into the series following a three-year spell with the same team in the JCW class of the MINI CHALLENGE.

Prior to that, Wilson ran in JWBird colours in the Volkswagen Racing Cup, finishing third in the championship standings in 2018.

Wilson joins Callum Newsham and Brad Hutchison in joining TCR UK from the MINI CHALLENGE for 2022, with the pair having announced plans to compete in an older Cupra Leon and an Audi RS 3 LMS respectively.
