Team Dynamics becomes the first squad to commit to the new Touring Car Trophy, fielding Mini Challenge race winner Henry Neal in the series’ inaugural season.

The Touring Car Trophy, a new championship set up by former British Touring Car Championship racer Stewart Lines, aims to be a low-cost stepping stone between one make series like the Mini Challenge and the BTCC.

The series is set to run across five events between April and October, and hopes to attract drivers “looking for the touring car action without the enormous cost of BTCC”.

BTCC champion Matt Neal believes the series is the ideal next step for son Henry, who has spent the past three seasons racing in the Mini Challenge.

“With the BTCC grid now full and capped, what Stewart has created with his TCT Series is perfect for us and others,” he said. “It’s fixture list is not overbearing and will give Henry some valuable seat time in a high performance touring car.

“We’ve really enjoyed running him through the Mini Challenge ladder, which has been great value for money with good racing, but it was his time to move on.”

Neal will race one of Team Dynamics’ 2017 BTCC spec Honda Civic Type Rs, which Henry Neal described as a “natural progression” from the Mini Cooper he raced in 2018.

“I can’t wait to get out there,” he said. “Having just recently driven the car, it’s a natural progression from the JCW Mini Championship I have been competing in for the past three seasons.

“Sequential gear box, limited aero and big brakes, I’m really excited. I think, with the equalisation rules, [the TCT] is going to make for a great spectator sport with some really close racing.”

The championship kicks off at Donington Park on April 13th, 2019.
