Nash replaces Giovanardi at Triple Eight

1 Mins read

Thruxton saw Fabrizio Giovanardi rejoin Triple Eight Race Engineering for a one race deal. Ahead of the second race weekend of the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championshipit has been announced that former RML driver James Nash has replaced the experienced Italian for Rockingham.

Nash, who had a five race deal with RML alongside Jason Plato and Mat Jackson in the Chevrolet Lacetti showed his true potential with some strong performances in 2009. Now he is looking to build on what he learnt in 2009 and go for the title, even with the disadvantage of not racing at Thruxton.

Nash took a single podium finish during his five race weekend deal in 2009, taking third place behind Jackson and Plato in a Chevrolet Lacetti one, two, three during the opening race of the Silverstone weekend. Nash could have had a win to his name as well, but for being excluded after an on track incident with the Airwaves BMW of Rob Collard at Snetterton.

Speaking about the deal, Nash said: “Missing the first races whilst we sorted the deal out obviously means that I will be playing catch-up, but I'm looking forward to racing at the front and making a fight of the championship.”

Rockingham hosts rounds four, five and six of the 2010 BTCC on the 24/25 April.
