Gallagher becomes first driver signed to B-TEC Development Series
Kieran Gallagher has become the first driver to sign up for the B-TEC Development Series by inking a deal to join Team BKR.
The Glasgow driver, who took part in the British Touring Car Championship last season with Team Hard in a Toyota Avensis, has signed a one-year deal with the outfit.
He will drive one of the team’s Volkswagen CCS.
The series will operate for older-spec BTCC machines fitted with the Gprm-derived parts.
Gallagher said: “I knew as soon as I read about this series that it would be a wise move for me. I am keen to progress in NGTC machinery and what better way to do it than to move forward with Team BKR.”
The series kicks off at Brands Hatch on March 27.
