Team BMR are to condense to a two-car outfit with immediate effect in a move that sees Josh Price depart the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
19-year-old Josh entered the championship in 2017 in the Subaru Levorg in a move that previously saw him racing with the team in the Renault UK Clio Cup Championship. Josh continued with the BMR Academy backed by Autoglym for the first half of the teams 2018 BTCC running as well as competing in the newly created TCR UK Championship this year.
Josh commented ‘I am very grateful to have been given such a great opportunity with BMR to be part of the British Touring Car Championship over the past eighteen months, it really has been a great learning curve. I am looking forward to having the time to focus on my own individual goals and future motorsport career’.
Warren Scott said ‘I would like to thank Josh for his time and support he has given to the BMR Academy within the BTCC, he is a very talented driver with a passion and determination which will take him far in his motorsport career. Josh is currently exploring other avenues and BMR are committed to supporting him in his future plans.
Warren went on to say ‘Whilst we would have liked to continue running the third car until the end of the year, when we looked at all the options it just wasn’t possible. With the lack of drivers available, with the talent and budget to suit, we took the opportunity to sell the TBL early to secure our plan of running two cars next year.’
Team BMR will continue with their full assault on the second half of the BTCC calendar which continues at Snetterton this weekend, the 28th and 29th July, for what promises to be a very exciting weekend with the 20 lap 60th Anniversary Race that is taking place.
