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.
