MAT Jackson and the Airwaves Racing team showed off their brand new livery of the Ford Focus NGTC that will be competing in this year’s BTCC at Donnington last week.

Mat will be teamed with Irishman Aaron Smith in a repeat of the 2012 season.

Airwaves have taken over as the main sponsor and with that, the car has changed to a stunning blue livery.

The team, featuring a new in-house built Mountune-powered NGTC Ford Focus STs, aim to make 2013 their most ambitious assault on the BTCC yet.

Round 1 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship takes place this weekend, March 30-31.

Airwaves Racing Team Principal David Bartrum said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Airwaves back on board as title sponsor for this season. This year marks the brand’s fourth year with the team and once again shows the strength and appeal of the championship to attract leading brands such as Wrigley.

“With the new NGTC cars and increased backing from our sponsors, 2013 is gearing up to be our strongest ever challenge on the title, hopefully we can repay them with a BTCC title.”
