BTCC drivers to make guest MX-5 outings
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.
