eBay Motors will be entering a team of three drivers in the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). The team, which consists of Tom Onslow-Cole, Rob Collard, and Nick Foster, is set to participate in three WSR-run turbo-charged BMWs. This marks eBay Motors’ third season in the BTCC, having been a partner of WSR since 2010.
One of the team drivers, Tom Onslow-Cole, who made his BTCC debut as a WSR driver in 2007, said, “I’m excited to be joining eBay Motors for the 2012 season and to again be part of the WSR team with such a history of success. This season I am looking to challenge for regular podiums as we certainly have the car to be at the front of the grid. I am counting down the days until the new season and can’t wait to get started at Brands Hatch.”
Commenting on the announcement, Andrew Hooks, Head of Automotive at eBay, added, “The BTCC sponsorship has been a huge success for us so far and we are delighted to increase our involvement. The championship is a great fit with our target audience and gives us an opportunity to highlight the huge selection of parts, accessories and vehicles on our UK site. We look forward to a successful season as eBay Motors.”
The first race of this year’s championship takes place at Brands Hatch tomorrow, April 1st.
