Ingram Closing In On BTCC Seat

1 Mins read

Tom Ingram has told that he hopes to have a deal in place for a 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship drive next week.

Ingram made his BTCC debut last season in a Speedworks Motorsport Toyota Avensis, making an immediate impact by qualifying in the top six on the opening weekend.

The two-time Ginetta champion went on to notch thirteen top ten finishes through the year, with his best race result of fifth coming in the penultimate race of the season at Brands Hatch GP.

Ingram’s name has been in the frame for a numbers of drives over the course of a busy BTCC winter which has seen a lot of movement around the paddock.

While there are only a handful of drives left open ahead of the opening rounds of the season at Brands Hatch on April 4/5, Ingram admits he still has a few options available as he closes in on a second season in the championship.

“It’s been a slow winter to be honest. There’s been a lot of hard work, a lot of sleepless nights to try and even get to where we are now,” said Ingram.

“I’ve got a few touring car seats that are sat waiting for me as such, but I don’t want to commit to a team and a drive until I know exactly where I am financially, I don’t want it to come back and bite me halfway through the season for whatever reason.

“I’ve got a meeting Monday that will confirm what’s going on with our budget, so we have to wait and see how that goes, then go from there. Nothing is sorted and confirmed yet, but I hope to have it finalised within the next week, and then make an announcement in due course.”
