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.
The Lancashire racer will be pushing in 2017 to make good on work behind the scenes at Ciceley Motorsport, with newly-acquired Mac Tools backing adorning the team’s beautiful Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
