Motor Sport News - - Btcc Preview: The Teams -

Base: Ac­cring­ton, Lan­cashire

Team prin­ci­pal: Rus­sell Mor­gan Car: Mercedes-benz A-class Mor­gan stepped up from the role of just a fron­trun­ner to po­ten­tial win­ner last sea­son and it was re­mark­able that he only pre­vailed once. The chas­sis of the Mercedes-Benz A-class is still one of the strong­est on the grid, so it is per­haps no sur­prise that his vic­tory came at Thrux­ton. En­gi­neer Paul Ridg­way has parted com­pany with the team and Mor­gan’s squad has re­cruited Marco Calo­volo to the staffing strength. Calo­volo has a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence and formed a very strong al­liance with James Thomp­son dur­ing his height. More wins will come Mor­gan’s way this sea­son but a ti­tle tilt might still be just out of reach.
