Partnership with former BTCC title winners to continue into ninth season
GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd is looking forward to continuing its title support of Team Dynamics and its factory-supported Honda Civic Type Rs in the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC)
The new-for-2019 livery and racing cars were unveiled at a special partners day held at the Team Dynamics headquarters in Droitwich with the BTCC media day just weeks away.
The machines carry an aggressive, all-new black and white livery with Yuasa red and Halfords Orange elements.
The familiar Yuasa logos remain prominently on the bonnet, sides, wing mirrors and rear bumper of the cars.
Triple BTCC champion Matt Neal, now in his 28th BTCC season, and Dan Cammish, who is now entering his second year in the series, will pilot the cars in anger ahead of the first race at Brands Hatch on Sunday 7 April.
Halfords Yuasa Racing is targeting ‘Championship titles’ after finishing a creditable second in the Civic Type R FK8 racing cars’ debut campaign in the 2018 Manufacturers and Teams championships.
Yuasa has a long and proud heritage in BTCC racing, having been title sponsor of the Honda works BTCC team since 2011.
During this time, the battery manufacturer has enjoyed phenomenal success on the track, claiming an unprecedented four manufacturers titles and four drivers’ championships.
Delivering business success through the BTCC
James Hylton, managing director of GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd said: “We are proud to continue our partnership with Halfords Yuasa Racing for another year and are looking forward to more high-octane racing action during 2019.
“Our successful journey with Honda and the BTCC in general continues to bring real benefits by raising the profile of our brand.
“The car’s brand-new livery looks fantastic; it will really stand out on the grid.
“We wish Matt, Dan and the team all the best for the new season and we can’t wait to join them in celebrating more success on track.”
The team will continue development and testing in preparation for the season opener at Brands Hatch.
The 30-round BTCC series then travels across the UK over 10 weekends taking in synonymous circuits including Silverstone and Donington Park before returning to Brands Hatch for the season finale in October.
