Robb Holland has shaken hands on a deal to race with Team-HARD. for the coming British Touring Car Championship season.

The American raced the team’s S2000 Honda Civic at Snetterton and Knockhill last year and will get behind the wheel of an as-yet unconfirmed NGTC machine for at least two rounds in 2013.

Holland’s primary 2013 racing programme will be in the World Touring Car Championship but he could take part in more – as many as nine – races in Britain next season.

“Last year Robb and I shook on a deal and it worked well for both of us, I think this deal will be no different,” said team boss Tony Gilham.

“Robb has unfinished business with the BTCC and I know what they feels like so I will help him in every way possible.”
