This will be the first VW Cup car built in the Team’s new premises, where the BTCC engineers will be able to have their input.

Team owner Tony Gilham said on the returning Wilmot “After working with Andy last year it is clear that Andy has championship winning potential, there were too many distractions last year, now I feel it is time to concentrate Andy’s development on his way to a future BTCC drive. With the team that he will have around him, the engineers and drivers I am confident that Andy’s progress with be fast tracked.”

Wilmot showed of his ability throughout the season with a double podium in his fiesta at his home circuit of Brand hatch and a well deserved season best 6th at Silverstone in the VW Cup.
