Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship team Sup­port Our Paras Rac­ing has with­drawn from the se­ries with im­me­di­ate ef­fect.

The team, op­er­ated by Derek Palmer Sr, be­gan last sea­son with two fac­tory-sup­ported rear-wheel-drive In­finiti Q50 ma­chines, but lost its works back­ing af­ter only three rounds of the 2015 cam­paign. The pro­ject was staffed by in­jured ser­vice­men.

The de­ci­sion was made by team boss Palmer Sr and came af­ter the tar­geted bud­get was not forth­com­ing.

“It’s a dis­ap­point­ment to the team, and the in­jured guys from the Para­chute Reg­i­ment who pre­pared and op­er­ated the car,” he said. “Th­ese are tough times fi­nan­cially for com­pa­nies, but that doesn’t make our dis­ap­point­ment any less.

“We will fo­cus on re­turn­ing to mo­tor­sport in a dif­fer­ent rac­ing se­ries.”
