Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race winner Aron Smith added an extra splice of positive news from an August to remember as he announced he will remain at BMR Racing for the 2015 season.
Three-time BTCC race winner Smith added a second success of the 2014 season last time out at Snetterton, backing up the Volkswagen CC driver’s victory at Oulton Park earlier this year.
The 24-year-old will now continue his partnership with the BMR squad into next year’s BTCC campaign, having signed with the team from Motorbase Performance for the current season after two seasons with the Ford outfit.
Smith, who currently lies ninth in the 2014 BTCC standings, said of his continuation with BMR for 2015: “I couldn’t be happier with the news, I feel completely at home in Team BMR.
“This has all come about very early but its put us in a great position for next season, everything we achieve before the end of this year is an added bonus. I truly believe that this is only the beginning of our journey together and to say I’m excited to see what we can achieve is an understatement.”
BMR team owner Warren Scott added: “I’m also delighted to have signed up Árón for next season as we want to continue to build on the continuity and momentum we’ve gained so far.”
“Árón has been consistently fast this season and has also shown his mettle under extreme pressure, like with his win at Snetterton, and I have been very impressed. It’s a real sign of a champion and for me it’s a case of ‘when’ not ‘if’ with Árón.”
“As a team we’re not just here to make up the numbers. I’m not saying we’re going to win the title next year but ultimately that is what we’re here to do in the future. We’re collecting a lot of data and experience this year, which can only help us to improve again in 2015, and in the years to come we want to be serious title contenders.”
