1 Mins read

Andy Neate will return to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2016, competing in the third works Honda Yuasa Racing Civic.

The 41-year-old will drive the third Civic Type-R alongside Triple BTCC champion Matt Neal and reigning champion, Gordon Shedden, returning to the series for the first time since 2013.

Previously having raced under West Surrey Racing and Triple Eight Engineering, Neate’s most recent action came behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Cruze with IP Tech.

Neate, who has a best BTCC result of sixth on two occasions in his career, said: “Like Matt, I’ve been involved with multiple teams in British Touring Cars and so bring with me a wealth of understanding and familiarity of the championship.

“I’m really excited to be working alongside two of the greats in Matt and Flash and it will be brilliant to have team mates that I can learn so much from.”

Neate has high ambitions for the season, adding: “The car looked epic last year and I am sure this year will be no different. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and begin to support Honda in achieving back to back manufacturers’ championships, and of course be challenging for those hard fought podiums.”

James Rodgers, Team Manager at Team Dynamics, commented: “We are delighted to have signed Andy to take on the third car and help our team point scoring capabilities for this season. The trend for increasing numbers of cars in teams has meant we are very keen to bolster our presence on the grid this year. Andy joins the Honda works team with plenty of experience to build on and a hunger for podium places, which is just what we are after.”
