Triple Eight unveiled its brand new NGTC MG6 GT at Silverstone, with one car running in the media photography session. The team’s new Next Generation Touring Car MG6 will be the first non-Vauxhall car that Triple Eight have competed with in the British Touring Car Championship.
Jason Plato was at the wheel as the car completed several laps during the media tracking photography section of Championship’s media day, but the team confirmed it wouldn’t be taking part in the afternoon’s four hour test session.
BTCC boss Alan Gow said: ‘We’ve got more cars this year than we had for Brands in 2011. To maintain and even increase the field in the current economic circumstances is fantastic. I’m very proud of it.
‘I have little doubt that, just as with seasons past, the number of cars will increase as new teams and drivers take on the BTCC.’
