It has been announced today that 2022 TCR UK driver Darron Lewis will be returning to the TCR UK Touring Car Championship.

After contesting two races last year in his stunning black Audi RS3 LMS TCR, Lewis will be looking to challenge for both the Goodyear Diamond Trophy and Tom Walker Trophy honours this year with a season-long programme. 

Using winter testing to adapt to his Audi, Lewis is nonetheless watching over his shoulder as newer touring cars begin to creep into the series in 2023.

“Last year’s one-off entry at Donington Park in August was fun and for me, that’s why I go motor racing, I do it because I enjoy it. Having said that, it’s also clear that TCR UK has grown since I last took part properly in 2021 and my decision to be a part of it for a full season was easy to make,” explained Lewis.

“It’s great to see that there are newer models coming in for 2023, however, that means I can work on making sure that I have the speed and reliability to be fast when others struggle. Touring car racing is partly about luck, so I’m aiming for good speed and reliability in the first half of the season, giving myself an edge for others to try to catch up on.”
