Hopefully, Team HARD will get better results, they should now they have a 1 Series or at least Boardley has.

Twice in the article on BTCC.NET does Tony Gilham mention the CCs being "new"
I am assuming he just means rebuilt? or have they realised chopping bits off a few years ago didn't work out for them and have acquired some new cars?

I have a memory that at least the first two CCs were converted road cars. The ebay account TG operated started flogging lots of CC-specific oily bits and interior parts in the weeks following the Racecar builds - coincidence possibly.

According to the database they are all 2013/2014 build but have been smashed up a fair few times since not to mention the Geoff K hack job Mike Bushell had to undo after wasting most of the year , but rebuilt "professionally" so I'm sure they'll win again without act of God or mother nature..... {winkyface}

Let's hope they can afford to send them to the grid this season with pads/discs/dampers with enough life to complete a race distance for a change. Bobby's family weren't happy about that.

I have heard from more than 1 person that this is the reason Michael Caine suddenly had "commitments" every btcc race weekend and didn't finish the 2018 season with them (despite then turning out in the Porsche Cup)

The CC's aero looks to have been changed around the bonnet and rear wheel arch.

I personally don't think the cars aren't all that bad, same with the Focus RS/Subaru/Mercedes, and more down to the team running them not getting the most out of them.
