Ginetta Junior runner-up Proctor retains BMR backing in Clios this year with Team Pyro
Ginetta Junior runner-up Senna Proctor will race for Team BMR in association with Pyro in the Renault UK Clio Cup this year.
The 17-year-old had originally agreed to race for JHR Developments, but has now signed a multi-year deal with touring car outfit BMR. Reigning Clio champion Ashley Sutton raced under a similar arrangement with Pyro last year.
“I was very honoured to drive for BMR last year in my second season in Ginetta Juniors, but for them to extend their deal with me for the next couple of years is fantastic news,” said Proctor. “It’s a huge boost to my career as they guide me towards the BTCC. It is an honour to race for the team. I’m looking forward to working with the title-winning Team Pyro.”
Proctor’s father, ex-touring car driver Mark, added: “We are over the moon, it’s a double celebration. We know we’re with the team that is going to do the best job in Clios. Senna’s ultimate aim is touring cars and with Warren [Scott, BMR boss] we have an ally who can work with us all the way.”
Pyro team boss Mark Hunt said: “We will start with an intensive test programme and would like to hit the ground running come Brands in April.senna has a sensible but sharp head on his shoulders.” ● Proctor will be joined by Josh Price in Pyro’s line-up this year. He completed the final three rounds of last season with the team, achieving a best result of fourth place.
