Prior to that it was entered under the name of North West Racing, reflecting that I was based in North West London.

And here we have Triple R. I don't think that there are many other teams similarly named using others letters of the alphabet, although I'm probably wrong.
I blame the pirates.

Wait 'til media day when the top secret Wurzels Racing Combine Harvester sponsored by Ooh Aahr Ooh Aahr appears. Probably in a bonny green shade, none of this ninja stealth black.

Remember a few pages back the mention of another manufacturer entry...

Looks like CUPRA have handed Goff a Formentor, so at least a tenuous link there!

Of course, he had a Civic for most of his time with independent Eurotech.

My apologies - I had interpreted your interrobang as expressing disbelief. If you meant it to express excitement then fair enough.

It seems there's definitely some kind of a link between HARD and Cupra now. Doubt it'll be a manufacturer entry - I think it'd already be announced - but good that a brand (or at least its UK part) is aware of their 'involvement' in the BTCC.

Maybe it's time to start rumours about Jason Plato reviving his relationship with Seat/Cupra and making them return properly as a factory team....

If I'm reading Goff's messages accurately - it appears that he's been loaned a demonstrator for a couple of weeks from a UK dealer. Probably timed to remind people they can visit showrooms with the lifting of COVID restrictions.

Something fresh for people to moan about.

Evolution announced as team sponsors for Team HARD. Racing


Team HARD. Racing today confirms a brand-new partnership with fire and security solutions business, Evolution Europe. Evolution will be present on the teamís brand new Cupra Leonís for the upcoming 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season and will also play a pivotal role in supporting Josh Stanton in his first season in the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship with Team HARD. Racing.

Evolution Europe is a UK-based company with huge international reach and is one of the largest, independently-owned businesses of its kind. For over 25 years, Evolution have been working to deliver effective, integrated enterprise-wide fire and security, risk, design and retail security solutions to clients all over the world.

Team HARD. Racingís Managing Director, Tony Gilham is delighted to be working with Evolution, saying ďItís fantastic that we can welcome Evolution to the team for the 2021 season and Iím really looking forward to working with them.

ďWe were introduced to Evolution by our new Porsche Carrera Cup GB driver Josh Stanton so thank you to both for believing that we are the team that will help them reach their goals both on, and off track in 2021.

ďThe partnership itself will see Evolution become a prominent figure within our BTCC programme with company logos on both Jack (Goff) and Glynnís (Geddie) brand new Cupra Leonís. We also look forward to inviting Evolution and their guests to our hospitality facilities at race meetings this season.Ē

Evolutionís logo will be prominent on Jack Goff and Glynn Geddieís Cupra Leonís along with title sponsors Autobrite Direct for the 2021 BTCC season. Evolution will also be continuing to support former Quaife Mini Challenge competitor Josh Stanton as he progresses into the Porsche Carrera Cup for this season with Team HARD. after backing Stanton for the previous two years.

Richard Lambert, MD of Evolution comments ďThis is promising to be our most exciting season yet! Supporting the BTCC has been incredible for Evolution and entering our third sponsorship year with such a promising line-up in the Team HARD. Cupraís and Joshís Porsche is fantastic. We look forward to some great times with our staff and customers alike.Ē

Team HARD. Racing is preparing to enter its 10th, and biggest season in the BTCC to date after announcing their switch to the new Cupra Leon from the Volkswagen CC in September. Evolution are the latest business to confirm their partnership with Team HARD. Racing as the team continue to grow and build its business hub for the 2021 season.

And what's there to moan about?

Maybe there'd be if their official name would be Team HARD Racing with Evolution Europe with international reach brought to you by Josh Stanton Ltd Team.
But I think it's unlikely.

If it's not a fully manufacturer funded entry, with full title sponsorship and 2 drivers who have not needed to bring any funding to their drive, then it's not good enough for some BTCC 'fans'.

Which does make you wonder why they retain any interest in the series that is so far removed from what they seem to expect it to be, it may as well be a different sport.

Oh yes, I get it.
I mean, of course, I'm not someone who see BTCC as everything fantastic, there are things I don't like etc but all in all BTCC is a fantastic championship so even with some criticism at times I still enjoy it greatly

Hang on, it's not the Leon. It's the CC this year, Big Tony said so, and nowt to do with driver preferences either: bigger car = more sheet metal = more space for sponsor stickers.
