Jake Hill

Hill switches to Honda

Following the news that AmD Tuning would be utilising an entirely new driver line-up for their 2020 campaign, it has today been announced that Knockhill race winner Jake Hill will be wielding the Honda Civic Type R with the Essex-based squad, as the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Independent Teams’ and Drivers’ Champions look to defend their title.

The 25-year-old joins the team fresh off the back of his most successful campaign to date, having impressed last season in Trade Price Cars Racing’s Audi S3. Hill claimed his maiden race victory at Knockhill as well as scoring points at all ten meetings, resulting in his fourth-place finish in the Independent Drivers’ category.

Third car for Team Hard

Kent-based Team HARD will expand to a three-car operation in the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship after securing a third TOCA BTCC Licence (TBL) in recent days.

The news follows last week’s announcement that Jake Hill will contest a full campaign with the squad, alongside the previously signed rookie Chris Smiley, but now the ambitious outfit is committed to building a third Toyota Avensis ahead of the new BTCC season.
