Triple Eight Race Engineering will switch to TOCA's Next Generation Touring Car (NGTC) turbo engine for the 2011 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, it has been announced.
The unit prepared by Swindon Racing will be used in both Vectra's to be campaigned by James Nash and Tony Gilham.
“The Vectra won a few races last season including the first and the last and it remains a competitive proposition,” said Triple Eight chairman, Ian Harrison. “Nevertheless, we've got a few tweaks up our sleeve to try.
"Add to that the switch to the NGTC engine which Swindon have been working hard on over the winter and which now boasts more power, you'll understand why I've got high hopes that James and Tony will be competing at the sharp end in 2011.”
The 30-race, 10 meeting 2011 BTCC commences at Brands Hatch in Kent on Sunday April 3.
