Warren Scott to compete in British Rallycross Championship for 2017

 
 

Team BMR’s Warren Scott has taken the decision to stand down from driving duties in the British Touring Car Championship to enable him to concentrate on his role of Team Principal.
 
Warren has confirmed that he will compete in the British Rallycross Championship this coming season with Liam Doran's championship winning team LD Motorsport, driving an RCiB sponsored Citroen DS3 formally piloted by Liam himself.
 
Speaking of his BTCC plans Warren confirmed "Although I had a very strong team behind me in the BTCC, I found it increasingly difficult to concentrate on my own racing when I had to also focus on the team’s performance and results as a whole. Having numerous cars on the grid meant that I could never fully centre my attention on my own race as there was always something going on. The BTCC is so competitive, often the top twenty are covered by just a second and there is no room for error, you must be 100% focused, 100% of the time.”
 
When asked about his future plans he stated “For the 2017 season, I will be competing in the British Rallycross Championship, I will however remain 100% hands on as Team Principal and am fully committed to Team BMR and Subaru in the BTCC and look forward to the championship fight this year.”
 

Speaking on his new car and team he added "I have already had a test day with Liam and his team.  The Citroen was unbelievable and I felt at home in the car and with the team straight away. I am really looking forward to this new personal challenge and to working with LD Motorsport who won the British Supercar Rallycross title in 2016 and with Liam himself who is a notorious World Rallycross driver with vast experience in the sport.”

The 2017 MSA British Rallycross Championship gets underway at Croft on Sunday 19th March.
