Rowbottom joins Team Dynamics as part of ‘multi-year deal’

Team Dynamics has completed their duo driver line-up with the return of Dan Rowbottom to the 2021 British Touring Car Championship.

The 32-year-old from Kidderminster joins Team Dynamics as part of a multi-year partnership, between Halfords and Cataclean.

Rowbottom made his debut in the BTCC in 2019 with Ciceley Motorsport but was forced to take a sabbatical last year.

The Worcestershire driver enters the team in a line-up with three-time BTCC champion Gordon Shedden.

Rowbottom described the news as “a dream come true” and he “can’t wait” to get started.

“For me this is an absolute dream come true and I’m really looking forward to the season ahead,” he said.

“This is a great opportunity for me with a topflight team and the continued backing of Cataclean.

“I can’t wait to get behind the wheel and see what this car can do, I’ve been studying the data and it looks fast on paper and has been proven to be fast on track, so I’m really excited to finally go testing next month.”

In his debut season, Rowbottom scored five points, finishing 28th overall in the Ciceley Motorsport Mercedes Benz A-Class.

The multi-year deal comes at a time of uncertainty due to COVID-19, but Team Dynamics’ Manager, James Rodgers, says this partnership will allow the team to invest further in the BTCC.

“This is a great partnership for us,” he said.

“In these uncertain times, to get a multi-year deal, means we can continue to invest and develop in our BTCC programme.

“Both drivers are highly motivated and we hope for great things in 2021.”

The BTCC season will get underway at Thruxton at the beginning of May.
