Team BKR joins B-TEC Development line up
Team BKR will enter six cars in the new B-TEC Development Series after forming a link up with Team BMR.
Clio team BKR will enter four of BMRS VW CCS and also two Vauxhall Insignias. They will all be fitted with Swindon Racing Engines tuned two-litre turbocharged motors.
The series will cater for olderspec BTCC machines and will feature 12 races taking place at six club meetings across the year, starting with Brands Hatch on March 26/27.
Team BKR tried to get a licence to enter the BTCC at the end of 2014 but failed. Team head Nico Ferrari said: “[Team BMR boss] Warren Scott and I were really close to getting a package together last year which would have seen us entering the BTCC and returning an Insignia to the grid. For various reasons, this plan didn’t work out but now I am more excited by this new opportunity, which gives us the chance to work alongside the biggest team currently in the BTCC.”
The team has yet to confirm any drivers. Ferrari said: “For any driver who is serious about progressing to the likes of the BTCC or even making a return, there is no other place to be.”
