Dan Lloyd confirms return to TCR Europe with Brutal Fish in 2020

Dan Lloyd has confirmed that he will return to race in the TCR Europe series in 2020, remaining with Slovakian outfit Brutal Fish Racing in a Honda Civic Type-R.

Lloyd joined the team for the second round of the 2019 season at the Hockenheimring and the Brit went on to be one of the best performers in the second half of the year, claiming two victories and ending the season tenth overall in the drivers’ standings.

With a season now under his belt with the team, Lloyd is targeting the overall title in 2020 as he confirms his plans for the season earlier than ever before.

“I’m absolutely over the moon to have re-signed with Brutal Fish Racing,” said the 27-year-old. “This is the earliest that I’ve ever been able to confirm my plans for the season ahead, and I couldn’t be happier.

“We had an outstanding debut season in the TCR Europe last year. It’s one of the toughest championships out there, with world-class drivers and we showed that we can mix it up with the best of them.

“We ended the year on a high with two wins and four podiums from the last three meetings, and we can now carry that winning momentum into this year’s campaign.”

Lloyd has already taken part in the season opener of the TCR Malaysia series with Brutal Fish as part of his preparations, with the Hudersfield-based driver currently leading the series standings.

“Continuity is such an important piece of the puzzle. I’ve only once before been able to secure a drive with the same team and in the same car for two consecutive seasons.

“I’m incredibly grateful to Martin Ryba for the opportunity to race with the team again this year. We’ve become close friends over the last season and I’m really looking forward to being part of his team again!”
