British Touring Car Championship driver Tom Boardman will make his return to the World Touring Car Championship next weekend as he takes part in a one-off appearence at Brands Hatch.

Taking part in a petrol-powered SEAT León entered under the SUNRED engineering banner, the Englishman will be looking to repeat his performance of 2009 in which he took a win in race 2 at Brands Hatch.

Boardman has had a mixed run of results this year in the BTCC with a fourth place at Rockingham marking his best finish so far and is currently eleventh in the over all championship.

“It’s great to get the opportunity to race on the [Brands Hatch] grand prix circuit again this year, and for it to be in the WTCC just makes it that little bit more special,” he said talking to Autosport.

With the latest addition of Boardman the Brand Hatch round will see a total of five British drivers take part over the weekend with Rob Huff, Andy Priaulx, Harry Vaulkhard and Colin Turkington joining the 26-year-old.
