Motorbase Performance is saddened to confirm that Nicolas Hamilton will not complete the remainder of the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season as part of the Kent-based squad due to sponsorship complications.

Nicolas joined the Wrotham outfit this year with the plan of completing a full-season campaign in a specially adapted Ford Focus RS. Unfortunately, recent sponsorship issues have resulted in the 27-year-old being unable to take part in the final two race meetings at Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

“It’s an unfortunate end to what has been a very positive season for Nic;” commented Team Principal David Bartrum. “We’ve been on a truly unique journey together this year, and I’m sad that we won’t have the opportunity to complete it.

“It has taken a huge amount of effort, hard work, and determination from Nic to reach the BTCC grid;” he added. “I think he’s shown that he’s a very capable driver, and surprised people along the way.

“Everyone at Motorbase Performance wishes him the very best with his journey and future motor racing career.”
