Jake Hill’s Laser Tools-backed BMW revealed

The Laser Tools Racing-backed MB Motorsport BMW that will be raced by Jake Hill this season has been officially revealed ahead of the start of pre-season testing.

Hill will run with support from Laser Tools for his second season as part of the West Surrey Racing line-up after the tools company reversed its decision to move away from the BTCC following the end of its deal with Aiden Moffat’s family-run team.

The livery on the BMW 330e M Sport is similar to the one seen on the Infiniti Q50 in recent seasons, featuring a distinctive chrome blue and white design.

“It’s always a fantastic part of every pre-season lifting the lid on how the car is going to look,” MB Motorsport sporting director Mark Blundell said.

“I think more so than any season to date, we’ve had such anticipation from our supporters and partners to reveal our livery and I am sure it will not disappoint.

“We’re kicking off our partnership with Laser Tools Racing with an unmistakable Laser Tools livery and seeing the chrome blue in the flesh, I can’t wait to see what it will look once we get out on track in our testing programme.”

Hill himself said he was delighted with the look of the car for the year ahead.

“The team have kept their cards close to their chest this year with the livery design,” he said. “I’ve been seeing all the comments online of fans asking the team to reveal it as soon as possible and I’ve shared exactly that feeling!

“Seeing it in person for the first time this week, it’s really special. As I’ve already said, I am proud to be flying the flag for Laser Tools this year and the car is certainly going to make an impact.”
