Speedworks Motorsport has revealed the livery that its brand new Team Toyota GB Corolla will race with in the 2019 British Touring Car Championship.

Along with pulling the wraps off the Corolla's new livery, Speedworks has confirmed a brand new title sponsor in the shape of pasty-maker Ginsters, meaning Tom Ingram will race under the Team Toyota GB with Ginsters banner for the 2019 campaign.

“Over the winter, we had the exciting opportunity to build something awesome from the ground up – planning, designing and evaluating every tiny detail with the aim of creating a car that simply has no weakness, irrespective of weather and track conditions, ballast or tyre choice," said team principal Christian Dick.

"Ginsters embrace that same minute attention-to-detail and dedication to perfectionism every single day, which makes them a very natural partner and we are thrilled to have them on-board.

“When we think of the development that went into our old Toyota Avensis – still making improvements right up to its last race – and the development that has already gone into the Corolla, we are completely in awe of what Ginsters achieve on such a large scale across so many products, and we cannot wait to tell everyone all about it!”

Ingram also shares his team principal's enthusiasm over the new partnership with their new title sponsor.

The 25-year old finished runner-up to BMW's Colin Turkington in last season's BTCC title race and will be looking to go one better this year behind the wheel of his all-new Corolla.

“Alongside Toyota’s commitment to building the best cars in Britain, I genuinely don’t believe there is a team with stronger foundations in UK motorsport than Speedworks – and in Ginsters, it’s incredible to find another brand that is as completely focussed on simply ‘doing things properly’ as we are," said Ingram.

“Like Speedworks, Ginsters are still a very down-to-earth company with honesty, integrity and family roots at the heart of everything they do – not to mention proud heritage. The family team ethos has been a huge part of how we have raced over the years and is certainly something that won’t be changing anytime soon, so to align with a brand that just ‘gets it’ is amazing."

The new BTCC season gets underway next weekend (April 6/7th) at Brands Hatch.
