eBay Motors Reveal 2014 Livery

eBay Motors have today unveiled the new livery that their trio of BMW 1-Series will run in the 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Held at BMW Park Lane in London – Colin Turkington, Rob Collard and Nick Foster took the covers off the car they hope will enable them to challenge for the outright title.

Not that different to last years colour scheme, the eBay brand features prominently across the car with less grey on the bonnet from 2013’s livery.

ITV4 commentator Tim Harvey was present at the launch talking to all the key personnel including Dick Bennetts who has stated it will not be easy with 31 cars on the grid at every round. Northern Irishman and 2009 champion Turkington though is not paying attention to the fan fare of seven champions and has his eye on the biggest prize in British motorsport.

Turkington told BTCC Crazy earlier this month: “Hopefully we have improved the car enough to be at the front and having a year under our belts provides a more consistent platform to work from.

“I think I’m back in the groove as well in terms of racing on the UK tracks so all the ingredients are there for a successful season. We were in the mix last year and I aim to be in the championship hunt again this coming season.”

With pictures that have emerged from testing, it is believed that Turkington will run #5 whilst Collard is set to be #10 and Foster as ever #18. Both Collard and Foster had a tough transitional year to NGTC in 2013 but are looking to bounce back for the new season.
