BMR Academy member Josh Price joins the British Touring Car Championship team, completing the BMR Racing line up for the 2017 season.
The teenager had previously been confirmed at Team Pyro for his second season in the Renault UK Clio Cup, but has been working through the winter months with BMR. Since then, a new sponsor has joined, allowing Price to take the step up into the BTCC.
“I’m extremely overwhelmed by the support of my sponsors, BMR, and Subaru to get me onto the BTCC grid this season at such short notice,” Price said.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge that’s ahead as well as working with a team with such great pedigree.”
Price not only completes BMR’s line up, but he also completes the list of 32 drivers expected to be on the grid at Brands Hatch at the start of April.
