BRSCC buys Compact Cup organiser BMW Race Days
BMW Compact Cup organiser BMW Race Days has been bought by the BRSCC ahead of the championship’s second year running with the club.
BMW Race Days boss Paul Mcerlean decided to sell the company to pursue other business interests. He felt the BRSCC was the right new owner, after the series previously ran with the 750 Motor Club.
Both Mcerlean and the BRSCC insist competitors in the championship – which averaged 40 cars last season – will not notice any significant differences after the change in ownership.
“The BRSCC is the right club because of its infrastructure and resources,” said Mcerlean. “I wanted to transfer it to someone who can work and develop it and continue the growth.
“The change from the competitors’ point of view is going to be an absence of myself, but the rest of the staff are going to stay with the championship.”
BRSCC competitions manager Dominic Ostrowski said the decision to take over the series was an easy one.
“We have been very impressed with every aspect of the championship, particularly the numbers on the grid and the competitive nature of the racing,” he said.
