BTCC driv­ers to make guest MX-5 out­ings

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

British Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship driver Tom In­gram will make guest ap­pear­ances in the BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Su­per­cup this sea­son.

In­gram, who fin­ished 10th over­all in the BTCC last year, will be a guest driver for Paul Sheard Rac­ing in the se­ries along­side his BTCC com­mit­ments with Speed­works, although he is yet to an­nounce which rounds he will con­test.

“We had a night out with Paul and I said ‘yes I’ll do it’; I think I’ll do Snet­ter­ton,” said the two-time BTCC race win­ner. “It’s some­thing with not a lot of pres­sure as well. We’re just able to en­joy it and have a play with some­thing dif­fer­ent.”

Paul O’ Neill will also make a cameo in the se­ries for Sheard’s team, hav­ing pre­vi­ously made one­off ap­pear­ances from 2014-’16, while Dan Welch is ex­pected to ap­pear in the BARC-RUN Max5 Rac­ing Cham­pi­onship this year after his family-run team’s de­ci­sion to take a sab­bat­i­cal from the BTCC.
