Tony Hughes confirms BTCC return for 2012

Tony Hughes has announced that he will once again pilot a NGTC Toyota Avensis for the Speedworks Motorsport team, looking to build on his maiden season in the series.

“We have one or two great additions and upgrades to include during 2012” added Tony, “I’m hopeful of getting plenty of time in the car on the run-up to the season opener at Brands Hatch (Kent), which will mean we can hit the ground running”.

The 2011 campaign saw Hughes Stockport based company, Hughes Safety Showers, nominated for a number of awards, including: EEF Future Manufacturing Awards – The Outstanding Export Award Category, MEN Business of the Year 2011, Insider Magazine – International Trade Awards, the Santander International Trade Awards – Regional Finalist, and HSBC Business Thinking award – the HSBC Business Thinking Award came before the season finale at Silverstone.

Looking ahead to the forthcoming season, Hughes is looking to break into the top ten for the first time and looking forward to racing against some of the biggest names in the business.

“Being on the same grid as the likes of Matt Neal and Jason Plato hasn’t lost any of its appeal despite us having a ‘tough’ opening season”, remarked Hughes, “Quite the opposite, in fact, we’re hoping to come back much stronger and push on up the grid”.

Speedworks Motorsport has already announced that they are to run two cars for this season, with 2011 Ginetta GT Supercup Champion Adam Morgan joining the team.

Hughes is hoping that the addition of Morgan to the line up will help push him up the grid: “Adam has a great talent, and is obviously very quick. I’m going to really enjoy racing alongside him and I think we can push the team forward much quicker with twice as much data on offer”

The 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship gets underway at Brands Hatch, Kent over the 31 March/1 April, while Silverstone will host the official Media Day on the 19 March.
