Infiniti Q50 To Race In 2015 BTCC
Infiniti has just confirmed its participation in the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship. The company revealed the two cars and drivers that will be competing in the championship in cooperation with Support Our Paras Racing. The Team will be known as the Infiniti Support Our Paras Racing and they will field two NGTC Infiniti Q50 race cars for the 2015 BTCC season.
The two NGTC Infiniti Q50 race cars will be driven by Richard Hawken (Walton-on-Thames) who has won three championships at club level and tested for Speedworks in 2013 and Derek Palmer Jnr (Lanark/Zurich). Both drivers have raced successfully in Super Touring Cars in recent years. The team, overseen by Team Principal Derek Palmer, will consist of a number of injured Paratroopers who will work on the cars to prepare them not only for race weekends, but also maintain their maximum efficiency throughout the hectic schedule of a BTCC season.
The team has also set itself the ultimate long-term goal of developing, training and ensuring an injured Paratrooper graduates through the racing ranks to pilot an Infiniti Support Our Paras Racing car in the future.
