Youngster Price joins BMR Racing Academy for 2017
BMR Racing has announced that Josh Price will drive the fourth Subaru Levorg GT with the BMR Racing Academy in the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
After a strong season in the Renault UK Clio Cup last year, Price garnered the support of the BMR Academy, a stepping stone programme created by the outfit to assist young drivers with the transition to the BTCC.
The team had been working over the winter months to graduate Price into the BTCC but were unable to finalise the arrangement. Since releasing news of his returning to the Clio Cup with BMR a sponsor joined the fold, allowing the young racer to make the step up in double-quick time.
“I’m extremely overwhelmed by the support of my sponsors, BMR and Subaru to get me onto the BTCC grid this season at such short notice.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge that’s ahead, as well as working with a team with such a great pedigree.”
On the deal, BMR Racing owner Warren Scott said: “We are thrilled to welcome Josh into the BMR Racing Academy BTCC Team and look forward to watching his progress throughout what promises to be an unforgettable year.”
