Ginetta GT4 Supercup Driver Boardley To Make BTCC Debut At Knockhill
Carl Boardley will make his BTCC debut for Team HARD in the Volkswagen CC at Knockhill. GT4 Supercup driver Boardley will replace Michael Caine who has stepped down from his drive due to family commitments.
Boardley said “This is something that has been on my radar for a while. I came close to joining in 2013 but had to change plans due to a health issue. I am looking at the championship as an option for 2019, and racing in Scotland will give me a good chance to see how the circus operates, how the cars feel and what the racing is like”
The BTCC debutant is hopeful that the recent upturn in form the Team HARD squad have enjoyed will translate into strong results at Knockhill.
