Jake Hill swaps to VW CC with Team HARD

Jake Hill secures the third and final Team HARD Volkswagen CC for the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
Jake Hill will continue with Team HARD in the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship as he looks to build on an eye-catching maiden season in the national tin-top series.

The 22 year-old showed impressively consistent form in the Team HARD Toyota Avensis last year, finishing all but three races and notching up six top ten results, including a fifth place at Silverstone.

For 2017, Hill will continue with Tony Gilham's Team HARD set up but will swap more competitive VW CC machinery, which he hopes will allow him to continue his progress.

“It's fantastic to know I will be back with the team and continuing my journey with them,” said the 22-year-old. “I am hugely grateful to Tony (Gilham), RCIB Insurance, AutoAid Breakdown and TAG Industries for working to get me back on board for this season, and equally have some incredible support from Sportif Motor Group, Brisky Racing and are delighted to welcome our new partners Rolec Electrical Contractors.

“Last season I learned a huge amount and felt we made some strong progress. We worked really well as a team, and it's really significant having continuity with the crew and the partners. It's great to be racing the Passat CC, with the latest RML equipment, as I think it will be strong at lots of circuits. The aim is to get points regularly, try and qualify well and be in the mix at every event.

Hill completes Team HARD's line-up for the 2017 BTCC, the youngster paired with Michael Epps and Will Burns.
