Having purchased the assets from Team HARD in 2013, the squad went on to make its full debut in the series the following season.
Running under the Chrome Edition Restart Racing banner, the team entered two Volkswagen CCs in 2014 for double BTCC champion Alain Menu and Aron Smith, and Insignias for Warren Scott and Jack Goff. Smith took two victories.
The fledgling outfit rose further up the grid in 2015 after scooping the stellar signings of two-time title-winners Colin Turkington and Jason Plato, who joined Scott and Smith in a VW quartet. Plato ran Gordon Shedden close in the championship decider at Brands Hatch, ultimately winding up just four points shy of his Honda rival.
BMR claimed an impressive ten triumphs in 2015 and in 2016 aims to defend its Teams’ title and add the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ trophies to boot, as it switches to the bold, rear-wheel drive Subaru Levorg GT.
