Jac Constable has announced he will return to the TCR UK Championship for a third season in a row with new entrants Rob Boston Racing in 2023, where they will campaign a latest generation Audi RS3 LMS.

Constable, who has won four races across the last two seasons in a Power Maxed Racing entered Cupra Leon, will be ranked as a championship favourite as he builds on his sixth placed finish in 2021 and fifth place last term.

“I’m looking forward to the new season and having tested the car recently, I’m already impressed with the new Audi,” Constable said. “It felt fast right out of the box, and I have the confidence that I can push the car already, knowing that there is more seat time to come before the season starts in April.”

Across the last two seasons Constable has become a solid front runner in the series. After the first half of the 2021 season was hit with a few maladies he came on strong towards the end of the season to climb onto the tail end of the championship battle. In 2022 his Cupra didn’t quite have the pace across the year. But he still managed two wins, and put in possibly the performance of the season at Snetterton in torrid conditions. Starting race one from the back of the grid after a mechanical failure in qualifying he rounded the day off with a second in race two.

“Working with Rob Boston and the team has given me a new challenge but also a new goal: To go out and fight for the 2023 TCR UK title,” he continued. Armed with the latest Gen2 Audi, I can now get to grips with the car and improve on the last two seasons by aiming to be top at the end of the year.”

Although the squad are new to the TCR UK series, Rob Boston Racing has a solid history in UK racing with a haul of championship titles from Mazda racing all the way up to the British Endurance Championship.

“We’ve been very successful in junior championships in previous years including Ginetta Supercup, the British Endurance Championship and Mazda’s to name a few. We’ve also kept an eye on TCR UK as it flourished over the past two seasons and I’m very excited to be able to have the chance to be a part of the grid in 2023,” Boston said.

“We had a meeting with Jac at the Autosport Show and the deal came together pretty quickly,” Boston added. “To be able to arrive as a new team with a brand new TCR car and an accomplished race winner like Jac is a great way to begin for us. We’re taking each race weekend as it comes, giving Jac the best support possible for his season.”
