2021 Press Release
Max Hart returns to TCR UK for 2021 season driving Maximum Motorsport Hyundai i30N After an impressive debut season in 2020, when he won the final round and ended the year third in the Touring Car Trophy, Irish teenager Max Hart will return to the grid in 2021 driving one of Maximum Motorsport’s recently acquired Hyundai i30N TCRs.
The 19-year old from Balinglass in County Wicklow is aiming to use the experience gained last season when he lines up for the first round at Anglesey in April: “Having previously driven single-seaters, I was impressed with how a TCR car felt as soon as I drove one for the first time last year. I really enjoyed last season, so I’m very pleased to sign up for 2021 especially as I’ll be driving a Hyundai i30N, a car that has proved extremely competitive all over the world.
“I’m intending to put my experience in 2020 to good use and will be spending as much time as I can on a SIM over the coming months to make sure I’m ready for the start of the season. I feel more confident this time around, so my focus is firmly on challenging for this year’s title. And with all the changes going on, it looks like I’m joining TCR UK at an exciting time. I can’t wait to get started!”
Championship Manager Stewart Lines is delighted that Max has signed up for this season: “It’s always great to welcome new drivers onto our grids, especially one as talented as Max. He gave us a taste of what he could do last year, so he’s definitely going to be one to watch. We hope that other up-and-coming youngsters will see the opportunities on offer this season and will come and join us as we start a brand-new era for TCR UK.”
