Trade Price Cars Racing has confirmed its entry to run a two-car team during next year's British Touring Car Championship.

Trade Price Cars has agreed a deal to purchase the two Audi S3s, as well as the corresponding TBL Licences, which were previously entered by the AmD Tuning BTCC squad.

In a joint two-year venture with Trade Price Cars Racing, Shaun Hollamby's AmD squad will continue to run the two Audi S3s, with Hollamby retaining his role of team principal, alongside former BTCC racer Andy Wilmot.

The Trade Price Cars brand is already a familiar name in the BTCC paddock following its sponsorship partnership with Team HARD last season.

Drivers for the two-car Audi squad will be announced in due course.

“We dipped our toe in the water in 2018 as a sponsor, but we feel the time is right to take our involvement in the BTCC to the next level,” said Trade Price Cars managing director Dan Kirby.

“The deal with AmD is one that is extremely attractive and gives us greater control over the programme to really maximise our investment. It also provides us with more flexibility to boost our corporate identity, and to promote the Trade Price Cars name to a hugely captive audience.

“In terms of the car, the Audi is a package that works for us from a business perspective and the AmD team have done a great job in developing it in recent seasons.

“I’m confident that we can all work together to unlock more of the potential that is in the Audi during 2019, and are in discussions with drivers who can help move the cars forwards up the grid next year.”
