Taylor takes a step up a BMW classes
Oliver Taylor made his debut in the Kumho BMW Championship A1 class at Snetterton last weekend, having wrapped up the B class title with four races to spare.
The 2013 Caterham Superlight R300 champion moved to BMWS for his debut saloons season, taking 12 B class wins in the first 12 races to wrap up the title early. Taylor scored a second in race one at Snetterton, before retiring from race two with an engine issue, and is set to return to the A1 class for next month’s finale at Silverstone ahead of a full 2017 campaign.
“It’s been brilliant, I know there’s been other people that have had great success, but I didn’t expect to be that competitive,” he said.
“The Caterhams are rear-wheel drive and quite a handful, and that taught me so much about getting the feel for a car.
“The last two rounds are about trying the As and doing the whole season next year.”
Taylor is preparing a new BMW E90 for 2017.
