Following the Official BTCC Media Day last week, Colin spent a few days with Team BMR and the pack of Subaru Levorg’s.
Reporting back with some good initial feedback, Colin confirmed that only one car was available for the first two test days. Despite this he was also confident that the talent back at base could turn out the four cars for shakedown on Thursday 31st March.
“We ran a two day shakedown test at the Millbrook Proving Ground on Thursday and Friday to put some initial miles on the clock before we hit the race track.
We got through a detailed programme on the chassis and engine without too many dramas. The feeling inside the car was very positive and I am pleased to report it sounds just like a SUBARU…I can’t wait to hear more of the raspy tones trackside.
Team BMR have now returned to base to complete the build on the final cars. They’ve done an incredible job in a very short space of time to effectively turn four Subaru Levorg road cars into full blooded BTCC racers. Brands Hatch here we come!”
