Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

WSR has con­firmed a three-car line-up in this sea­son’s Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship af­ter sign­ing Sam Tord­off and Rob Col­lard for an­other cam­paign.

The pair will drive Gardxbacked rear-wheel-drive BMW 125i M Sports. Jack Goff will also be part of the team in an Ihg-backed BMW 125i M Sport.

It will be Col­lard’s ninth sea­son with the squad and Tord­off ’s se­cond. Both were race win­ners in 2015. Col­lard fin­ished 10th in the stand­ings. Tord­off was sixth.

“It is great to have both Sam and Rob con­tinue with the team this year,” said team prin­ci­pal Dick Ben­netts. “Con­sid­er­ing that Sam has only done three years in the BTCC and only one in the rear-wheel-drive BMW, I reckon he’ll re­ally shine this year. Rob re­ally lifted his game last year, to the point that even Andy Pri­aulx, a three-time world cham­pion com­mented how quick Rob is on race day. . .

“The guys have been work­ing re­ally hard through the win­ter to move the 125i Ms­port on to a new level, as we all know just how com­pet­i­tive the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship is.”
