Team BMR ‘leaving no stone unturned’ to resolve ongoing issues

Team BMR boss Warren Scott has vowed that the manufacturer-based squad will leave no stone unturned to resolve their straight line speed deficit issues.

Scott’s quartet of Subaru Levorg’s have endured a difficult start to the season with a lack of straight line speed being pinpointed as the source of their woes.

Ashley Sutton once again left Thruxton as the top points scoring for the Adrian Flux-backed squad as he moved into the top ten in the championship standings whilst his team-mates languished towards the tail end of the field.

Jason Plato, James Cole and Josh Price all failed to notch any points finishes with double champion Plato only securing one finish inside the top 15 season all season – in round one at Brands Hatch.

As the series now heads to Oulton Park, scene of the teams turnaround last year, Scott has stated that BMR are working with all parties to get to the bottom of their problems.

Commenting on the outfits latest struggles, Scott said: “It has been an immensely difficult start to the season after what seemed to be a very encouraging, comprehensive pre- season test programme for everybody at Adrian Flux Subaru Racing.

“The Subaru Levorg is handling extremely well but the straight line speed deficit is certainly curtailing the efforts from our drivers to be challenging for the championship.

“We are working tirelessly with all parties involved in the control of this and hope that we will have this resolved by Oulton Park. We run an open house policy within the engineering team to share set up and data on both test days and race weekends.

“I am personally extremely disappointed in the results we have at the moment and I intend to leave no stone unturned in an effort to resolve this problem so that we can get the team back on track to winning ways.

“I thank the sponsors and fans for their continued, loyal support at this most challenging time.”
