Daniel Lloyd, who raced a Triple Eight Racing-run factory-backed MG in the opening four meetings of the 2017 BTCC, has parted company with the team. The Huddersfield driver, who was caught up in a high-speed accident at Thruxton in May where he rolled out of race two, has quit ahead of this weekend’s three races at Croft.
As the team bids farewell to Dan Lloyd, MG welcome back Josh Cook, who will step into the seat for the remainder of the season. Josh was a great ambassador for the MG brand in his first stint in the team and we feel sure that he will pick up where he left off as he joins new team mate Aron Taylor-Smith for the first time.
MG’s Events & Sponsorship Manager Keith Harris said:
“Firstly, I’d like to thank Daniel Lloyd for his efforts supporting my colleagues and I with the wider activities that we undertake as part of our BTCC programme. He was always a willing participant and brought great colour and character to our dealer hosted Question and Answer sessions around each weekend.
Whilst it is always sad to say goodbye to a team mate, obviously I am delighted to welcome Josh Cook back into the MG Family. He is a driver that I know the MG community really took to their hearts and I feel sure that his return will be greeted as enthusiastically by the MG fan base as it has been by the team.”
