BRSCC buys Com­pact Cup or­gan­iser BMW Race Days

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
