BTC RACING NAMES MICK SERGEANT AS NEW TEAM MANAGER
Another piece of the jigsaw for BTC Racing’s Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship squad has fallen neatly into place today (1 February), with the announcement Mick Sergeant has been confirmed as the new overall Team Manager.
While Sergeant will oversee all day-to-day business at the Brackley-based squad, Zoe Timbrell retains her role within BTC Racing’s team management structure with the No.99 Honda Civic Type-R of Jade Edwards.
Team Manager Sergeant arrives with vast experience of team management in the BTCC and a career in touring cars which stretches all the way back to the days of the famed Super Touring era.
Starting out in the BTCC in race team electronics in 1997, after ten years in the Royal Air Force as an aircraft engineer, Sergeant took on his first Team Manager role in the BTCC in 2014 with Triple Eight Race Engineering and has since been Team Manager for BMR Racing and Speedworks Motorsport.
More generally, he has also worked across a wide variety of disciplines including the Supercars Championship in Australia, the British GT Championship, GT World Challenge Europe [formerly Blancpain GT Series] and in the FIA Formula One World Championship with the Williams F1 Team.
Steve Dudman – BTC Racing Owner and Team Principal:
“I’m delighted to welcome Mick to BTC Racing in the key role of Team Manager and very much looking forward to working closely with him as we prepare for our biggest season to date. This is a very important year for BTC Racing, so to have the vast experience Mick brings from more than two decades working within the BTCC will be invaluable.
“Everyone at the team is determined to put together our most successful season yet in the BTCC, we’re leaving no stone unturned and bringing in the very best personnel – like Mick – to help deliver the results we know we are capable of.”
Mick Sergeant – BTC Racing Team Manager:
“I’m chuffed to bits to take on the Team Manager role at BTC Racing, it’s been on my radar for a couple of years now and thanks to Steve [Dudman] and his enthusiasm for the sport, and his investment in the team, the time is right. At the heart of the race team is a core of professionals I’ve worked with before, ensuring we have a very strong foundation from which to move forward.
“We have a great driver line up for the team’s 2021 BTCC campaign with Josh [Cook], Michael [Crees] and Jade [Edwards], we have great team spirit and all the right ingredients for a very successful year. Behind the scenes the hard work has already started, I know we can all work together to achieve the team’s goals and aspirations for 2021 and beyond. Bring it on!”
