Team BMR are to run the remainder of the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship as a two car outfit following the departure of Josh Price from the series.
Despite this mid-season change, Josh will remain a member of the Team BMR squad but the new series he plans to join is unknown.
Price joined the BTCC grid last year with Team BMR and scored two points finishes. He drove well at certain events despite it being his first year in the series.
Running under the Autoglym Academy Racing banner for 2018, the issues that have faced Ashley Sutton and Jason Plato in the other two Subaru have also affected Josh, therefore he hasn’t been able to make too much of an impact during a race weekend.
“I am very grateful to have been given such a great opportunity with BMR to be part of the British Touring Car Championship over the past eighteen months, it really has been a great learning curve.” Said Josh in a statement,
“I am looking forward to having the time to focus on my own individual goals and future motorsport career.”
Team BMR have sold the TOCA BTCC License used to run Josh Price to Power Maxed TAG Racing. Who in turn will use this TBL as a replacement for one of the two loaned TBLs that will be returned back to TOCA.
Warren Scott thanked Josh for his service in the BTCC and also why they didn’t hold onto the third TBL,
“I would like to thank Josh for his time and support he has given to the BMR Academy within the BTCC, he is a very talented driver with a passion and determination which will take him far in his motorsport career. Josh is currently exploring other avenues and BMR are committed to supporting him in his future plans.
“Whilst we would have liked to continue running the third car until the end of the year, when we looked at all the options it just wasn’t possible.
“With the lack of drivers available, with the talent and budget to suit, we took the opportunity to sell the TBL early to secure our plan of running two cars next year.”
