Abbott remains with Austin for 2015 BTCC

Hunter Abbott will stay with British Touring Car Championship squad Rob Austin Racing for the 2015 season.

Abbott made his BTCC debut with the team last year, but endured a tough maiden season, finishing down in 20th position with a 10th place as his best result.

Abbott will again be driving an Audi A4 alongside team boss Rob Austin in the upcoming season.

"The BTCC is like nothing else – the depth of competition and driving skill is among the highest of any motor racing championship in the world and you have to race harder and more ruthlessly than any other championship I've been in," said Abbott.

"Give an inch and someone will have a nose in there in a nano-second.

"I was happy to have finished in the points at my first ever BTCC event last year and the highlights for me were Rockingham and Croft where I overtook 17 cars in one race.

"With a year's experience under my belt and the changes that Rob has made to both the team and the cars during the winter break I am really excited about returning for 2015."
