Warren Scott says everyone in the Team BMR Restart outfit is smiling after running their new NGTC Volkswagen CC for the first time.
After half a season campaigning an unreliable Seat Leon in the Jack Sears Trophy, Scott and the team have taken delivery of the new machine, built by the Tony Gilham Racing squad.
Team BMR Restart will run the car with support from Tony Gilham Racing, who have already achieved three podiums with their CC in the hands of Tom Onslow-Cole.
Scott said: “Everyone is smiling because it’s here! Tony Gilham Racing have done an amazing job, we always knew it was going to be tight to get the car prepared in time, but they’ve managed it just like they have with all the cars they’ve built this year.
“I’m really looking forward to being a part of the NGTC battle, but obviously we’re being realistic, we’ve got a lot of practice to get under our belts to get up to speed.
“We were having problems with the SEAT and I didn’t want to put money into a car that wasn’t going to be racing in 2014.”
Mark Turner, Team BMR Restart team principal, said: “Everyone involved has done a cracking job to make this happen. The hours everyone has put in have been incredible – the guys have been working through the night for the last few days and now we’re set up for a good shakedown this weekend.
“We’re really looking forward to the challenge, but for this event we’ve just got to get the car sorted and set out our targets for the rest of the season.”
Tony Gilham said: “It has been a massive task for us to complete another car build in time for the Snetterton round. That’s now our fourth NGTC build in only six months.
“For a small family team like ourselves this is a huge achievement, to now be alongside Honda with four NGTC cars on the grid. The boys have worked tirelessly to make this happen and the relationship we have already formed with all the guys and girls at Team BMR Restart makes it even more rewarding.”
