Butel continues into 2022 with EXCELR8 TPC

Jack Butel will continue at EXCELR8 Trade Price Cars alongside teammates Dan Lloyd, Tom Chilton and Ingram for the 2022 BTCC season.

EXCELR8 TPC has completed their four-car driver line-up for the 2022 season.

Butel will take on his third British Touring Car Championship season with the outfit he drove with in 2021.

As of yet, he has not claimed a podium finish and will be eligible to fight for the Jack Sears Trophy.

Last year, he secured three points finishes with a best finish of 14th at Knockhill in the Hyundai i30 N Performance Fastback.

Butel said: “After joining the team last year, I made huge steps forwards so it’s fantastic to now have the opportunity to build on everything I was able to learn in 2021.

“The fact that I know the car and the team – and they know me – is something that can only be beneficial, and I feel confident going into the new season as I aim to fight for the Jack Sears Trophy title.

“Having three amazing team-mates in Tom Ingram, Tom Chilton and Dan Lloyd means I will have a wealth of experience alongside me in the garage and that can only help me in my bid for silverware this season.

“I’m confident we’ll hit the ground running when we get to round one and although the new hybrid systems will be something we all have to learn, I’ve been thrown in at the deep end before in touring cars when I was called up for my debut season at the last minute, so I have experience of having to adapt quickly.”

Team Owner Justina Williams described Butel’s race pace in the latter part of the 2021 season as “hugely impressive” having ended his season three races early due to a concussion.

The season-opener is due to take place at Donington Park on 23-24 April, which will begin the hybrid era of the BTCC.
