The family-run Ciceley Racing operation was a newcomer to the BTCC in 2013 – although driver Adam Morgan had competed in the championship in 2012, having won the Ginetta GT Supercup the year before. The team immediately went from strength-to-strength, with Morgan’s Toyota Avensis scoring consistent top six results.
Achieving its first podium during its home event at Oulton Park, the squad attracted a lot of attention in 2013, and for 2014 rebranded as WIX Racing in deference to its title sponsor. Moreover, it made the switch to a brand new Mercedes A-Class, bringing the German marque back to the BTCC for the first time since the 1980s.
It was a successful maiden campaign for the model, with Morgan securing a breakthrough victory in the season finale at Brands Hatch GP. The team remained unchanged for 2015, as Adam triumphed at Thruxton and claimed a further six podium positions on his way to seventh in the title race. The solid partnership continued into 2016, with Morgan taking two further victories.
For 2017, Ciceley Motorsport enacted a change of livery – switching from predominantly yellow to predominantly red as Mac Tools joined the fold as title sponsor. Adam Morgan stayed on-board and scored four podiums on the way to 10th in the standings. Morgan returns for 2018 – now a fixture at the Lancashire-based Ciceley outfit. He will be joined in a sister A Class by Tom Oliphant, liveried in striking green and black.
