AmD offers subsidised Volkswagen Golf drive

Shaun Hollamby, the AmD team boss has announced that there will be a subsidised drive in the teams’ VW Golf for the 2013 British Touring Car Championship.

The team are switching to the NGTC Regulations with a Vauxhall Astra for the second half of the season but the VW Golf is still eligible in 2013.

With the introduction of the Jack Sears Trophy for the S2000 cars, Hollamby wants the Golf to win the newly introduced trophy and he feels that the car will be competitive.

“We have already announced our long term plans with the newly built Vauxhall Astra NGTC chassis which will debut mid-season. Alongside this programme I want our AmD VW Golf to win the Jack Sears Trophy which is running within the massively popular BTCC. The reduced turbo boost levels will make the Golf a strong package to win this trophy,” explains Hollamby.

Looking ahead to the 2013 campaign, Hollamby is looking for some giant killing performances from the car, which showed top ten pace towards the end of the 2012 campaign.

“We want the best driver possible to get behind the wheel and AmD are making the unprecedented step of announcing a 50% subsidised deal,” continues the former BTCC racer.

“The Golf ended the 2012 season with top 10 pace and results plus we were quicker than a number of NGTC machinery. I expect the same to be true in 2013 and the other S2000 cars will run reduced boost so winning the Jack Sears Trophy, with a few giant killing results along the way, will be our target!”

If the driver wins the Jack Sears Trophy for the team then they will get the chance to test the teams’ NGTC Vauxhall Astra as a reward.

Hollamby concluded by saying: “The AmD Golf has unfinished business in the BTCC and I can see us winning lots of trophies with the right driver in 2013!”
