Team Dynamics Motorsport will take a hiatus from the British Touring Car Championship in 2023.
Team Dynamics Motorsport has announced that they will take a hiatus as a fully-fledged entry in the 2023 BTCC season. They have also announced an agreement to support the ONE Motorsport team throughout the year.
This agreement will mean they will switch from the customer TOCA engines to the Neil Brown Engineering power plant.
Team Dynamics has a long history in the BTCC, joining the series in 1992 and entering as Rimstock Racing. They would later enter as Team Dynamics in the 1997 season, racing the Nissan Primera.
The team would experience great success in the Championship, winning a total of seven Teams’ Championships. Team Dynamics Motorsport also would win six Drivers’ Championships and six independent titles.
“This has been an extremely difficult decision for us to make as a business,” said Team Dynamics Owner, Matt Neal. “Unfortunately, with the current economic climate, we have not been able to secure the commercial partnerships we required to commit to the forthcoming BTCC season.
“I’ve been in the BTCC all my life and it has presented us with many fantastic opportunities and memories, so I’m extremely disappointed that we will not be directly involved and saddened for our dedicated employees, partners, fans and supporters.
“However, we still want to keep the Honda brand at the forefront of racing and ultimately winning races.
“Under our tenure, the car marque became one of the most successful manufacturers in the championship, second only to Ford in just half as many years. So, we aim to put to good use our resources and developments made over the winter by supporting One Motorsport in 2023 and helping them to win races and challenge for the Drivers’ and Teams’ Championships.”
Not only will Team Dynamics be supporting One Motorsport during 2023, but the squad will continue to build its classic, touring car and GT race car business, as well as running customer vehicles in various championships in the UK and around the globe.
BTC Racing will rebrand as One Motorsport this season with Josh Cook and Aiden Moffat joining the team. The team will continue to race the historic Honda Civic Type R FK8, in the championship.
Whilst reflective of its time in the British Touring Car Championship, Neal has confirmed that he aim for Team Dynamics to return to the BTCC grid in the future.
Neal concluded: “We would like to thank everyone involved in the BTCC, especially Alan Gow, who has supported us over the years, we wish all the teams and drivers, particularly One Motorsport with Neil Brown Engineering, the best of luck for the forthcoming season. We hope to actively be back in the BTCC in the future.”
