Wycombe ace Tom Ingram has one goal on his mind ahead of the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship – building upon the impressive progress he and Speedworks Motorsport made last year to clinch the most coveted crown in national racing.

In only his fourth campaign in what is commonly regarded as the world’s premier and most fiercely-disputed tin-top series, Ingram looked set to truly take on the sport’s biggest-hitters, but a luckless mid-season run would conspire to derail his charge.

Undeterred, the 24-year-old came back fighting over the second half to lift the Independents’ Trophy, with Speedworks similarly doing the business in the Independent Teams’ tussle as the outfit sealed its breakthrough BTCC success in fine style.

“After what we accomplished last year, there can only be one objective for 2018 – and that is the overall title,” added the three-time Ginetta Champion and erstwhile British Karting Champion. “There was never any question that we would be staying with Speedworks this year. They’re like my second family. The dynamic between us works so well – it has since day one, and it’s getting stronger by the day.

"Winning both Indie championships was a huge tick in the box, but we don’t plan to stop there – we want to push for even more this year, and I see no reason why we can’t achieve that."
