WSR are very proud to present the brand-new BMW 330i M Sports that will represent Team BMW and BMW Pirtek Racing in the 2019 British Touring Car Championship.
Returning to the BTCC for the first time since 2012, and built by the reigning champion team, the 3 Series is the car with which WSR claimed the first of their 10 titles and is acknowledged as the most successful touring car of all time.
Colin Turkington, who aims to equal the all-time record of four BTCC titles, and new recruit Tom Oliphant, race for Team BMW while 2013 champion Andrew Jordan drives for BMW Pirtek Racing.
Each livery, which encompasses the flowing lines of the iconic BMW M Motorsport stripes, has been created by the renowned Nick Moss Design.
Both Team BMW and BMW Pirtek Racing will shake down their brand-new cars publicly at Brands Hatch today (Tuesday) ahead of the official BTCC season launch on March 27.
The BTCC begins – also at the Brands Hatch Indy circuit – on April 6-7.
Dick Bennetts, Team Principal, said: “It’s a great moment to see the incredible amount of hard work and long hours that everybody at WSR and our technical partners have put in, come to fruition as we present our new BMW 330i M Sports. They look like proper touring cars should on the surface, Nick Moss Design has done a fantastic job on the liveries, and under the skin we have a package that we believe can help us add to our 10 BTCC titles. We know we’ll be short on test mileage compared to most of the other teams come the start of the season, but that just means we’ll have to push ourselves even harder to make sure we’re in a strong situation as soon as possible.”
