Triple Eight in NGTC switch

Triple Eight switches to NGTC for the 2012 BTCC season
Triple Eight has confirmed that it will join the Honda Racing team in switching to NGTC machinery for the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season.

The team has been associated with Vauxhall since making its debut in the series and ran the factory programme through to the manufacturer leaving the sport at the end of 2009. However, it has yet to be decided what make or model will form the basis of its new NGTC-spec machine.

Last weekend's race meeting at Rockingham saw James Nash take Triple Eight's first victory of the 2011 season, which maintained a run of one victory each season since 1998

“Its fairly obvious now that the NGTC regulations are the future of the British Touring Car Championship,” Triple Eight boss Ian Harrison said. “It's quite clear too that the future has already arrived, perhaps a bit sooner than we expected. While our complete plans have yet to be finalised, we're announcing the switch from S2000 to NGTC now as a clear sign of our support of the BTCC going forward and where we have competed successfully since 1997.

“The NGTC cars look the part and will undoubtedly become more reliable and cost effective over time giving the BTCC a solid technical platform from which to grow the on track aspect of the series.”
