Proctor joins Subaru for 2019 challenge

Senna Proctor is returning to BMR Racing, racing a Subaru Levorg in this season's Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.

Proctor first joined the team in 2015 with the BMR Academy when he raced in the Ginetta Junior Championship which then saw him progress the following year to the Renault UK Clio Cup Championship in 2016 remaining under the BMR banner.

He made his BTCC debut in 2017 with a move to Power Maxed Racing where he was crowned Jack Sears Trophy Champion and remained in the seat for a second consecutive season.

BMR always had 20-year-old Senna down as a future BTCC Champion spotting his potential when he was just 16 years old and the team are delighted that the journey can now continue.

Senna said "I am very excited to be returning to BMR Racing for the 2019 season. After racing under the BMR banner in 2015 and 2016, the timing to return is right so when the call came in everything seemed to fit perfectly and it was an easy decision to make.

“I would like to thank everyone at BMR Racing for putting their faith in me. I can’t wait to get out testing and sample the Subaru Levorg, I think the Rear Wheel Drive Car will suit my Driving Style.

“After 2 successful years in the BTCC, I have found my feet and I am ready for the next step, my aim this year is to win races and to be in with a shot of the title come the last round of the season.”

Paul Tunnicliffe, Director of Subaru UK, said “Senna is a more than fitting driver to represent us in this prestigious championship, and we confidently expect to see him challenging for the top honours from the get-go."

Micky Sergeant, Team Manager at BMR Racing said: “It is an absolute pleasure to have Senna on board.

“Senna has unfinished business at BMR and he will be coming back to his roots where his rear wheeled drive experience from his Ginetta days took him to the championship title runner up in 2015 as a BMR Academy driver. Jack Sears Championship winner in his maiden BTCC year puts him in good company and his maiden win last year along with a brace of podiums and a dozen top ten finishes certainly makes him one to watch again in 2019."
