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 team’s brand new Cupra Leon’s 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. Racing’s Managing Director, Tony Gilham is delighted to be working with Evolution, saying “It’s fantastic that we can welcome Evolution to the team for the 2021 season and I’m really looking forward to working with them.

“We 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.

“The partnership itself will see Evolution become a prominent figure within our BTCC programme with company logos on both Jack (Goff) and Glynn’s (Geddie) brand new Cupra Leon’s. We also look forward to inviting Evolution and their guests to our hospitality facilities at race meetings this season.”

Evolution’s logo will be prominent on Jack Goff and Glynn Geddie’s Cupra Leon’s 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 “This 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. Cupra’s and Josh’s Porsche is fantastic. We look forward to some great times with our staff and customers alike.”

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.
If they have a similar livery to that of the Porsche in the pictures, there will be more black cars on the grid this season. Utter shambles from Team HARD..

What's that? They haven't released the Cupra liveries yet? I can stop getting angry about something that hasn't happened yet?

I know right - how dare a sponsor who has established their identity as a 3-colour stripe alongside white lettering on a black base colour expect the BTCC car to follow the same scheme?

In fairness, the title sponsor at HARD. is AutoBrite - so expect a combination of red/white/black. What's that - Toyota has already stolen Honda's white/red/black colours for their own team? Maybe Rokit will have to move away from their established White on Black colours to allow BMW to use Black in their scheme? But then Car Gods 54 will have to change their White on Black scheme too. Perhaps then Halfords will be ok using an Orange and Black scheme in their shops?

Maybe we need all companies in the UK to submit their colours to Alan Gow, so that he can confirm if there will be a clash should they ever choose to sponsor a BTCC team?

You know what guys? In order to make it better maybe the best idea would be to have all cars fully white for first half of the season and fully black for the second

True! It looks very clean and smart so far, though not sure the Focus would wear the white quite as well!

RPJr's Hyundai is testing in white today and as we all know testing liveries are absolutely definitely the final livery.
