Team Hard will expand to run two cars in the British Touring Car Championship in 2016, and could switch away from the Toyota Avensis model that it ran last season.
Team principal Tony Gilham has already signed Mini Challenge graduate Chris Smiley ahead of the 2016 campaign and talks are ongoing over the other seat.
"We are moving into the British GT world this year too, so we are really expanding," said Gilham.
"We are looking at what cars we will use in the BTCC.
"We want to have two of the same type of cars, but they might not necessarily be the Avensis that we ran in 2015. We have got some options for a different machine."
Autosport understands that Team Hard has already acquired a second TOCA BTCC Licence for the upcoming season.
There was spare capacity within the licence allocation for 2016 following the merger of Rob Austin Racing - which had two TBLs - with Handy Motorsport and the withdrawal of the Support Our Paras team.
Team Hard ran a single Avensis for Kieran Gallagher in 2015.
Gallagher curtailed his campaign before the final two rounds, with team boss Gilham returning to the driver's seat in his place, and has already announced he will compete in the new B-Tec Development Series feeder category this year, racing an ex-BMR Volkswagen for Team BKR.
