Árón Taylor-Smith present at the Team HARD. Racing CUPRA Leon launch.

Árón Taylor-Smith is set for his BTCC return in 2021 as part of Team HARD. Racing‘s CUPRA Leon charge with the new challenger unveiled tonight (Tuesday).

Taylor-Smith called it a ‘perfect fit’ for the championship and that his excitement on returning to the championship has increased after seeing the car in person for the first time.

I think what impresses me the most about the new CUPRA is the attention to detail that Team HARD. has put in. Every single component on the car has been designed with performance in mind, utilising some of the best engineers in the game. I have no doubt in my mind that this car will be a front runner after seeing it in person,” he said.

From the outside, you can see how this car is the perfect fit for the BTCC. The wheelbase, the dimensions and even the bodywork are exactly what is needed for a car to be competitive in the series.

Yes, getting to see the new CUPRA was brilliant but arguably even better was having the chance to properly meet my new team. Their passion for this new car is infectious and it’s the first time in a long time that I have felt ‘at home’ within a team. It’s shaping up to be an incredible year.

I thought that I was already excited for the season but actually getting to see the car has taken this to a whole new level. It is, in my opinion, the best looking BTCC car on the grid and I can’t wait to get out on track as early as next week to see what it is capable of.”
