Josh Price completes BMR trio with Autoglym Academy Racing
BMR Racing has announced the re-signing of Josh Price for the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, piloting the all-new Autoglym Academy Racing Subaru Levorg GT.
Autoglym has been involved as a sponsor and technical partner with BMR Racing in the BTCC for a number of years. Having witnessed Ash Sutton win the title last year, Autoglym were keen to be a part of Price’s story as he embarks on a similar journey to that of Sutton.
Price first joined the BMR Academy in 2016 and enjoyed a strong season in the Renault UK Clio Cup before taking the leap to the BTCC where he finished his maiden campaign third in the Jack Sears Trophy standings.
“We’re over the moon to be able to further our commitment to the BTCC and our relationship with Subaru and Team BMR in particular,” explains Autoglym CEO Paul Caller. “We have been watching Josh’s journey and we are proud to be playing such a key role in his and the team’s campaign and we can’t wait for the championship to get underway.”
Price added: “It’s great to be back in the BTCC with Team BMR and Autoglym. After a test at Snetterton a couple of weeks back we came away with a clear vision that this was the right path to go down for 2018. There is definitely unfinished business for me in the championship, so we’ve got a lot to prove this season.”
Paul Tunnicliffe, Automotive Development Director, Subaru UK said: “Josh started to come into his own late in the 2017 season, and I sense he will be a real force alongside Ash and Jason this year. With such a formidable line-up, we predict great things for the team in 2018”.
BMR Racing owner Warren Scott commented: “We are thrilled to have Josh in the team for another season in the Subaru Levorg. 2017 was a big learning curve for him with it being his maiden season in which he made impressive progress. We are really looking forward to watching him battle for the Jack Sears Trophy title once again this year and can’t wait to get started. Josh and his family are great to be around and it’s a pleasure to have them on-board”.
