Tim Bridgman linked with BTCC move

Reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion Tim Bridgman could be lining himself up for a possible move to the British Touring Car Championship alongside driving in the Porsche Supercup.

In a recent interview with TCF Bridgman revealed he was in talks with various teams about the Supercup move but he has since said in an interview with his local newspaper Dumnow Broadcast & Recorder that there is a possibility of a move to British Touring cars as well.

“I tested recently at Brands Hatch with Motorbase Performance and it went really well.” said Bridgman.

“I would love to race in the British Touring Cars as that would take my career down another avenue. It’s a great championship and I believe Motorbase would be keen to do it as well. They just need to secure the funding to run the car.”

Asked of any foreseeable problems of running in two championship he said: “There are no date clashes at all and I would be more than capable of racing in both.”

He went on to talk of the benefits of getting more driving time, “From the team point of view the more a driver is driving a racing car the better, so there shouldn’t be a problem there.

“It would be a busy year but I would be delighted if I could race in two of the top championships in the world.”

The only thing that Bridgman can see standing in the way of his dual challenge is the need to find sponsors.

“At the end of the day it comes down to negotiations between teams and their prospective sponsors.”

“If both deals happen I would be racing from March to October nearly every weekend and I’d love that. It would be really exciting.”

“I am 100 per cent capable of delivering in both championships and I just hope it can happen.”
