Wood To Stick With S2000 Vecta for 2013 BTCC

1 Mins read

Lea Wood will run his S2000 Vauxhall Vectra in the British Touring Car Championship’s Jack Sears Trophy this season.

Wood tested Speedworks Motorsport‘s NGTC Toyota Avensis twice during the off-season, first at Donington Park before Christmas and then joining Speedworks’ only confirmed-for-2013 driver Dave Newsham in Portugal.

However, despite the car being up for sale, Wood has decided to continue with it for this season – under the Wheel Heaven/Houseman Racing banner in place of last year’s Binz Racing.

Now his plans are confirmed, Wood told btcc.net his goal is to win the inaugural trophy, introduced for aged machinery following a widespread move to the championship’s Next Generation Touring Car.

“In the long run it worked out better for us to run the Vectra,” he said. “It’s fantastic to have enough loyal sponsors to run again. We were only going to do it if we could do it properly – I know the car and the circuits inside out so we’re aiming to win the trophy.”

Wood will be at the official media day at Donington Park tomorrow (Thursday). theCheckeredFlag.co.uk will be bringing you live updates throughout the day.
