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.”
