Team BMR beginning to turn a corner in performance following opening practice

Team BMR are hopeful that a corner is beginning to be turned in relation to their quartet of Subaru Levorgs following opening BTCC practice at Oulton Park this morning.

Having been forced to withdraw from Thruxton’s triple-header last month, the Buntingford-based outfit conducted two days of testing at Pembrey to clock valuable mileage as well as ensure any fuel line issues were rectified.

Introducing a new engine manifold for this event, all four rear-wheel-drive machines took to the track in FP1 and it was to be double champion Colin Turkington that emerged as the fastest with a best time of 1:27.022 to finish tenth.

Despite featuring inside the top ten, team boss and driver Warren Scott admits there is still a lot more to come from the cars moving forward during the weekend.

Scott told BTCC Crazy: “Testing at Pembrey was all about getting some miles under our belts and also ensure that the fuel line issue was fixed and that it won’t happen again.

“We’ve been given more boost now and the upgrades we had planned are in place so we now need to move forward. There is still more to come and we know what direction we need to go in to push forward.

“I have every faith in the team, etc that we will be moving further up hopefully as the weekend progresses.”
