Team BKR joins B-TEC De­vel­op­ment line up

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.”
