BMR Racing are delighted to announce that Adrian Flux Insurance will continue its sponsorship partnership with the BTCC team for a third consecutive season.
Defending champion Ash Sutton and two-time touring car champion Jason Plato have both confirmed they will remain with BMR Racing for the 2018 season.
The specialist insurance broker has been supporting BTCC since 2016 and is backing Team BMR for this season’s racing in the Adrian Flux Subaru Levorg Sports Tourer.
Gerry Bucke, Adrian Flux General Manager, said: “At Adrian Flux Insurance, we’re massive fans of motorsport and delighted to be supporting the team at BMR Racing for another season, especially during BTCC’s 60th anniversary season.
“We’ve been involved since the beginning of Subaru’s involvement in touring cars and it has been brilliant to follow the racing year after year. BMR Racing have an excellent team, including two champion drivers behind the wheel of the Adrian Flux Subaru Levorg - so as a sponsor we’re certainly looking forward to an exciting season ahead.”
Warren Scott, BMR Racing Team Owner said: “We are absolutely delighted to have Adrian Flux Insurance on board with us for another new season of the BTCC and with exciting times ahead of us we are looking forward to rewarding them with great success in 2018.”
23-year-old Ash was crowned the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion back in October last year at Brands Hatch after an outstanding year with Team BMR in the Subaru Levorg Sports Tourer. In only his second year in the series, he totalled an impressive six outright wins and celebrated no less than fifteen podium positions during the season.
Ash Sutton said: “It was great to hear that Adrian Flux are back onboard for the 2018 Season. I know they have been involved from the beginning but I started my journey with them last year and personally, it couldn’t have gone any better. They showed great support all year round so what better way to say to thank you than with the drivers' title!”
2017 saw BTCC legend Jason celebrate his 50th pole position and his 96th win in the series. Titled the BTCC’s most successful touring car driver, 50-year-old Jason will be competing in his 20th year in the championship after his first involvement in 1997, winning the Drivers’ title in 2001 and 2010, with a target of taking his win tally up to the 100 win milestone this year and also secure a well overdue third BTCC driver’s title.
Jason said: “What a fantastic season 2017 proved to be for Adrian Flux Insurance and Team BMR, the best debut any title sponsorship could have hoped for. We are motivated and looking forward to delivering an even more successful 2018 Season for Adrian Flux and our partners. Let battle commence on April 7th, I can’t wait.”

About BMR Racing
BMR Racing, from a small village in Hertfordshire, first competed as a family run operation entering as an independent team in the BTCC in 2013. In rapid succession, BMR featured multiple championship winning drivers and a proven race winning strategy and engineering team. Most recently comes the factory support from Subaru - further validating the vision and ambition of the team. Team BMR has delivered exhilarating and engaging performances for its loyal and passionate fan base and partners.
BMR celebrated their first ever race win in the Subaru Levorg within the first half of its maiden season in 2016 and went on to have a tremendously successful season. In 2017, in only Subaru’s second year in the Championship, BMR took the season by storm with an impressive 8 race wins, 3 pole positions and an amazing 20 podiums before clinching the overall drivers’ championship title with Ash Sutton in his first year piloting the Subaru Levorg.
In 2018, Adrian Flux and BMR continue to build on their strong relationship and together will enjoy much more success on their quest to defend their drivers' championship title this season as well as aiming for the manufacturers' title of which they were runner-ups in 2017.
The 2018 BTCC season kicks off with the official media day at Donington Park on 27th March, with the first race weekend at Brands Hatch on the weekend of the 7th/8th April.
