Bradley and Lewis Kent are both looking forward to what’s ahead for them in the 2020 racing season.
“I’m looking forward to the 2020 season with a new challenge racing a VW Scirocco in the VW Cup.
With a car putting out 280bhp it will be a different world from the one I have been used to. Having raced in the BRSCC Junior and Senior Fiesta ST championship and then last year in a rear wheel drive Mazda MX5 in the Super series.
We purchased a car 4 months ago and have completely stripped it to ensure we are happy with everything, have now rebuilt the car replacing a great deal of bodywork, new suspension and wrapped the car in the new team colours. I feel confident that I will be in a position to compete with the more experienced VW drivers.
Testing starts in February and I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel of a race car, with the help of the team and my brother Lewis I hope for a successful season with a view to moving on to TCR in 2021 driving a Hyundai i30N.”
“This year will be my third year in TCR UK finishing 5th in 2018 and 2nd in 2019 I hope to go one better and win the Championship, we did have one race in TCR Europe in SPA which I will be doing again this year with a view to possibly three more European races in Holland, Italy and Spain.
During the year I had 6 podium finishes including 3 wins out of the 8 races I competed in and set new TCR lap records at all of the four circuits. In December I was lucky enough to be invited to test the Hyundai Veloster TCR at Palm beach raceway Florida with the Bryan Herta race team, a great weekend and a nice way of keeping your hand in for racing over the winter.
Over the winter we have completely overhauled the Hyundai i30N and I am now looking forward to testing in February, we have run the car at the AUTOSPORT International Show in the live arena demonstrating what a TCR car can do, this proved very successful generating a lot of interest in me as a driver and the team in general from which we have found some potential sponsors.
The first round in April cannot come quick enough for both me and my brother Bradley.”
