has announced it will double up to a two-car entry for the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship if it can secure a second TOCA BTCC Licence (TBL).

Having made a switch to NGTC Ford Focus machinery in 2014 and signing race winner Dave Newsham to the team, AmD has shown progressive improvements with the car over the course of the season, peaking with a run to the podium at Knockhill.

Looking ahead, has expressed a desire to run two cars in the BTCC next year, but this will be dependent on whether it can secure an additional TBL to the one it has already secured for 2015.

"It was a big step for us to take on an NGTC programme this year but I feel that we have stepped up to the challenge," said team owner Shaun Hollamby. "While things haven't always gone our way, team manager Rob Tickner and the boys have raised their game to provide a car that has run quickly and reliably all season and that is something I feel immensely proud of.

"To get onto the podium, as we did at Knockhill after a great drive from Dave, was the icing on the cake and showed what we can do in what is arguably the most competitive touring car championship in the world.

"The logical next step is to expand our touring car programme to include a second car for 2015, and that is something that we are keen to do. Of course, that would be dependent on securing a second TBL alongside the one we already hold, but we have a burning desire to expand our involvement in the BTCC and if the opportunity arises, we are ready to grasp it with both hands.

"Before then, we will aim to end our current season on a high this weekend and we are hoping to score some strong points at our home circuit to head into the winter on a high. We know the car can do it and we know Dave can do it, so I'm optimistic about our chances."

It is not confirmed which car the team will run in 2015
