Front running BTCC driver Rob Austin has signed a deal with Team-HARD. to run in 1 of their REVO powered Mark 5 Golf GTI’s at this weekend’s VW Cup round at Snetterton in Norfolk.

Rob is a very popular driver in the BTCC and has a very good following. A crowd favourite and very entertaining watching him move the rear end of the Audi around on track. It will be interesting to see how the flamboyant Austin adjusts to front wheel drive.

Rob said “I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and hopefully getting a result for Tony and Team-HARD. I know Tom Onslow-Cole’s having a go this weekend as well so I’m expecting it to be good practice for next weekends BTCC event”

Team-HARD. owner and fellow BTCC driver Tony Gilham said “I am really pleased that Rob has decided to get behind the wheel of 1 of our Golf’s. The VW racing cup is a great competition and the level of driver skill is fantastic, I think Rob and Tom will have their work cut out.” Gilham then added “ Just to put them under more pressure, I have reminded them of my results at Spa!! But on a serious note I hope this is the start of something good. Watch this space”

Rob will join the rest of the Team-HARD. drivers: Richard Kingsnorth, Lucy Ramsden and (fellow newcomer) 16 year old Henry Gilbert.
