Excelr8 Open to Customer BTCC Hyundais, Ingram Tipped to Stay
The BTCC team Excelr8 has revealed that it is open to the idea of supplying customer teams with their Hyundai race cars in the future. This admission comes amid rumors of a potential expansion to a six-car line-up for the team. However, Excelr8 was quick to deny these rumors, stating that there are currently no plans for such an expansion.
At the recent Silverstone round, there were talks of Excelr8 potentially increasing their racing capacity from their current four-car line-up to six cars. However, the team’s management has firmly dismissed these rumors, stating that they have no knowledge of where these speculations originated.
“I don’t know where that rumor has come from,” said a representative from Excelr8. They made it clear that there are no immediate plans for any expansion beyond their current four-car team. However, they did express their openness to supplying customer teams with their Hyundai race cars in the future. This could potentially pave the way for other teams to join forces with Excelr8 and compete in the BTCC.
Despite the rumors swirling around Excelr8, the team’s reigning champion, Tom Ingram, has hinted that he will stay with the Sussex-based squad into 2024. This news comes as a relief to fans and supporters of the team, as Ingram’s talent and success have played a significant role in their recent achievements.
The BTCC silly season is always a busy time for teams and drivers, with contracts up for renewal and numerous potential changes on the horizon. For now, Excelr8 remains focused on their current commitments and aims to continue their winning streak in the upcoming races.
As the BTCC season progresses, many eyes will be on Excelr8 and their potential expansion plans. With the possibility of supplying customer teams with their Hyundai race cars, the team could see a significant increase in their presence on the grid. However, only time will tell, and fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for Excelr8 and their BTCC ambitions.
