NAPA Racing confirms unchanged quartet for 2024

As expected, NAPA Racing has confirmed that it will field an unchanged line-up for the 2024 BTCC season, with Ash Sutton leading the charge as he bids to secure a record-breaking fifth championship title.

Sutton romped to his fourth crown in dominant fashion last season, scoring a total of twelve race wins as he wrestled the title back from Tom Ingram – becoming the first driver to win the title in both front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive.

The 30-year-old will now look to beat the record shared with Colin Turkington and Andy Rouse with the Ford Focus ST having undergone further improvements over the winter.

“After an incredible two years with the team already, and with the latter being a record-breaking year as I took my fourth title, I am fully focused to go after more,” he said. “The car finished in a good place last season, but that doesn’t mean it’s been left there. More development has been going on back at HQ, and I can’t wait to get back in the hot seat.”

Dan Cammish will also be going into his third season with the team and, after a difficult 2023 season, will look to join Sutton in pushing for the title.

“I am very much looking forward to continuing with NAPA Racing UK for 2023,” he said. “I am very proud to be part of such a fantastic team and have learnt a great deal over the past two seasons.

“I intend to use everything at my disposal to bring NAPA Racing more success in the coming season and look forward to getting back on track soon with my team-mates.”

Dan Rowbottom and Sam Osborne then round out the four-strong line-up, with Rowbottom also chasing further victories during the season ahead and Osborne bidding to challenge for the Jack Sears Trophy.

A regulation change over the winter means Osborne remains eligible for the JST despite inheriting a podium finish at Donington Park last year.

“To go into 2024 with NAPA Racing UK is an amazing feeling,” Rowbottom said. “With one year under our belt, we have a great understanding of how we all work. To be a part of the success of 2023, and to be able to have contributed in a positive way, is a great feeling, but it has left me hungrier and more ready than ever.

“I’ve been in the gym since the flag fell at Brands GP and I don’t think I’ve ever placed myself in a better position to start a season. It’s going to be a great one; let’s go racing!”
