Team HARD confirms two-car entry for 2024 BTCC season

Team HARD has confirmed a two-car entry for the 2024 British Touring Car Championship season, despite disappearing from the TOCA TBL list late last year following a troublesome 2023 season.

The team had three TBL licenses last year which it had to give up and will for 2024 use two from Aiden Moffat.

Team HARD will field a pair of Cupra Leóns for two drivers that are yet to be confirmed, stating that one driver has been signed and will be announced “over the coming days” while “discussions continue” regarding the second driver.

“I have made many mistakes over the years, some poor business decisions and ultimately over ambition has had a huge negative impact on us as a team,” said team owner Tony Gilham.

“TOCA and Alan Gow have been very supportive, and I want to thank each and every person that has been there for me during these tough times. We have lots to repair, the rebuild has begun and I will continue to fight to get us back to where we should and need to be.

“We have helped many people over the years and will need the loyal support of trusted friends, colleagues and partners moving forwards to achieve what we are setting out to do.

“There has been lots of online and social media activity – both good and bad – and we will do everything possible to rebuild our team, reputation and any damaged relationships that have happened as a result. We most definitely tried to take on too much and were let down by what the team thought were some trusted allies, whilst also suffering from the effects of both Covid and the economic climate.

“We are excited about what lies ahead and everything possible will be done to ensure the business looks forward to a brighter future.”
