After a successful first season in the British Endurance Championship (BEC) Track Torque will expand into the sister series, the Britcar Production Cup, as well as adding a second Chevron to the stable.
Track Torque ran the full season in Class Three of the BEC with a Chevron GR8, only missing out on class honours to Team Bullrun, who went on to win the overall championship. However, the team – with drivers Nick Jarvis, Matthew Parr, Chris Hart and Tommy Field – won the class at two races, including scoring an overall third place at Snetterton in May in the process.
Team director Clive Reay–Young outlined the team’s 2013 plans. “If everything goes to plan we intend to campaign our two Track Torque-modified Chevron GR8 cars in the British Endurance Championship and a SEAT Leon Supercopa in the Production Cup, There may even be a chance that we will run two SEATS depending on sponsorship.”
The team are hopeful of Hart and Field returning to drive the Chevron in the BEC for another season, and are currently in discussion with drivers to crew both the second GR8 and the SEAT.
“The whole team enjoyed our first season in Britcar very much!” said Reay-Young. “James [Tucker, Britcar director] and his team made us feel very welcome, the standard of racing was excellent and gave us a chance to showcase our cars and drivers with some very credible results. We are looking forward to 2013 where by concentrating all of our efforts into one series we hope to bring even better value to the Track Torque package.”
