Welcome to Hughes Motorsport!
Hughes Safety Showers boss, Tony Hughes and Speedworks Motorsport made history by being the first team to commit to running a Next Generation Touring Car (NGTC) in the 2011 Championship. Following two seasons realising his dream of competing in the UK's premier racing series, Hughes hung up his boots in favour of the more back-seat role of Team Sponsor.
The new NGTC spec was introduced to reduce the cost of competing. Cars cost less than previous regulations to design, build, develop and run but still deliver top levels of performance with the potential to develop even further in the future.
As always, safety is a key consideration - the common theme that attracts Hughes Safety Showers as a Team Sponsor. Sponsorship of a sport that places so much emphasis on safety is a natural fit for Hughes whose business is built on protecting lives. The shared commitment to innovation, excellent design and quality engineering is combined with a competitive spirit committed to delivering success.
Although he is no longer behind the wheel of the Toyota Avensis, Tony is keen to support the Speedworks run Avensis that will be piloted by mutliple Ginetta Championship winner Tom Ingram for the second year running. Coverage of the 2015 season, as always, will be live on ITV4 & ITV4 HD, and with viewing figures of 20.8 million during 2015 there's sure to be plenty keeping an eye on Tom's progress.
This year Tony will be competing again in the 24H Series in the Ginetta G50. In 2014 the Team won the SP3 GT4 category at the Dubai 24H and returned in 2015 where they took a well-earned second with the Aston Martin sister car taking third.
Hughes also continue their support of Superstock 1000 rider Adam Jenkinson who narrowly missed out on the 2014 title.
