Cole completes Team BMR Subaru line-up
British Touring Car Championship racer James Cole will join Jason Plato, Colin Turkington and Warren Scott at Team BMR in 2016.
The former Formula Ford title winner will drive a fourth rear-wheel-drive Subaru Levorg, which is under construction.
Cole, who joined the BTCC in 2013, raced in a part-season in 2015 for the Motorbase Performance team.
“I am very happy to be going back to a rear-wheel-drive layout, as that is something that will help me feel comfortable. My success has come with this configuration, and I think it will enable me to show what I can do,” said Cole, who has also raced in F3 and F2 cars.
“The Subaru Levorg is a new project, but a great team and there is a lot of experience behind the scenes. I am in a great place to learn and move forward in 2016.”
