Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
