Bamboo plots BTCC return

18 February 2011

After a season in the WTCC, Bamboo Engineering looks set to make a return to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for the 2011 campaign.

Having moved into the WTCC with the team, Harry Vaulkhard looks set to spearhead the Bamboo challenge into the new season with talks ongoing with other drivers.

Should the plans come to fruition, Bamboo would continue with the Chevrolet Lacettis it ran successfully in the World series last year, where Darryl O'Young was a contender for Independent honours until the closing stages of the season.

“Our aim is to run two cars and we're already very close to a deal with Harry,” team boss Richard Coleman told btcc.net. “We want to do the BTCC and he wants to do the BTCC – the championship is looking extremely healthy and we want to be a part of that into the future.

“Our team has come a long way in the last 12 months and we've really strengthened our technical capabilities. We also know the Lacetti a lot better and are confident it can still be a very competitive package – people should remember it's a car that won all three final races in 2009. Furthermore, Harry's matured a lot as a driver so would come back a stronger driver.”
