Irish Britcar racer Nicole Drought travels to Brands Hatch this weekend to join the AmD Motorsport team for the final weekend of the hugely popular British Touring Car (BTCC) series.
Having made her UK racing debut this year with the Valluga team in the Britcar Endurance Championship, the Irish woman is keen to continue her learning curve. The CJJ Motorsport driver took three class wins in her CJJ Porsche 718 and narrowly missed out on the title, and now changes role this weekend, as she joins the engineering side of the 2019 Independant Championship winning BTCC team.
AmD Motorsport Team Principal Shaun Hollamby: “We are delighted to welcome Nicole to AmD at the final round of the BTCC this weekend. I hope it will give her the insight into the workings of a team in the UK’s premier motorsport championship. She will be working with our engineering team over the weekend.”
Nicole Drought “I have learnt so much this year and am keen to continue. My association with Formula Female has given me an interest in the technical side of motorsport and especially the use of data, which was completely new to me in 2020. This is a great opportunity for me to work with the data engineers in the team and as a lifetime BTCC fan, it is also very exciting for me- I can’t wait.”
The 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship reaches its long-awaited climax at Brands Hatch next weekend (14/15 November), with one of the most exciting and extraordinary seasons set for an unmissable finale.
Despite the suspension of the original schedule due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, Series Organiser TOCA impressively rearranged an almost full calendar of racing – condensed into a three-and-a-half-month window – much to the delight of everyone involved in the UK’s elite motorsport series.
The delayed campaign hasn’t disappointed with no fewer than five drivers heading to Brands Hatch in contention to claim the most coveted crown in British motor racing.
