After making his debut this season, Simon Belcher has confirmed he will continue to race the Handy Motorsports Toyota Avensis in the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Both Belcher and Handy Motorsport entered the BTCC for the first time in 2014 and though he would fail to crack the top fifteen for points, he would finish 28 out of the 30 races.

"I am delighted to be back on the BTCC grid for a second season, being able to announce our return so early should put us in the strongest possible position for 2015. We had a fantastic time in the championship this year, it was such a good experience and so much better than we ever expected.

"We haven't finalised all of the plans yet, but it is all coming together and I am targeting considerable improvements next season where we will also be strengthening our engineering team which should help us push forward and move further up the grid."

Having developed an alliance with fellow Toyota team Speedworks, Handy Motorsport confirms it will maintain this collaboration into 2015.

"Handy Motorsport and Speedworks worked very well together this year, Christian [Dick] runs a great team and I am personally delighted to continue our partnership," he added. "With such terrific continuity, hopes are high we can really make the most of it and start to climb the order in the BTCC. There's a lot of hard work ahead, but we can't wait to get started."
