CARLUBE TRIPLE R RACING WITH CATACLEAN & MAC TOOLS BLASTS ONTO BTCC GRID
Ciceley Motorsport has unveiled its exciting 2020 plans for the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship campaign with a new team name, new sponsor and a two-car line-up for the first time.
To be known as Carlube Triple R Racing with Cataclean & Mac Tools, this is the first time that Ciceley will have run two cars in the same colours and under the same banner, as previous assaults have always been as two separate one-car teams. Adam Morgan and Dan Rowbottom will drive the two cars as they aim to give Ciceley its best season yet in the BTCC.
“We are ecstatic about our 2020 plans,” said Team Principal Russell Morgan. “It is really exciting and positive to welcome Tetrosyl on board to promote its Carlube Triple R brand. Having two cars in the same colours is a first for our team, offering not only double exposure for our sponsors but also increasing our chances of scoring points in the teams’ championships. By retaining Adam and Dan, we have drivers who know the cars as well as how we operate and, along with the work we have done over the winter, I am sure that we will be more competitive than ever.”
“I am feeling very positive about this season,” said Morgan. “We turned a corner mid-way through 2019 and found a good set up and we are aiming to build on this. Steve Farrell, our race engineer, has had some ideas to improve the cars and some of our processes as a team and so we are in good shape for the season ahead.”
“I am really keen to get back in the car and get started,” said Rowbottom, who is aiming to build on his rookie campaign in the BTCC in 2020. “Last year was a huge learning curve, which taught me a lot, so with the experience and hard work over the winter to improve the cars, I am confident of a stronger season. It’s also very positive to bring Cataclean back as a title sponsor as they join forces with some of the biggest names in the automotive industry.”
The Lancashire-based squad makes this announcement less than four weeks prior to the BTCC Season Launch at Silverstone on 17 March, with the opening rounds at Donington Park, Leicestershire, on 28/29 March.
