Ash Sutton signs new multi-year deal with NAPA Racing UK

Four-time BTCC champion Ash Sutton has announced that he has agreed a new multi-year deal with NAPA Racing UK, keeping him in the UK’s premier motorsport series until at least the end of the 2026 season.

Sutton joined the Ford Focus ST outfit at the beginning of 2022 and went on to capture a record-equalling fourth crown last year, breaking a string of records along the way.

The 30-year-old’s new deal with the reigning Teams’ and Manufacturer/Constructor champions means that he has at least three more seasons to capture what would be a historic fifth Drivers’ Championship.

Commenting on the deal, Sutton: “After an incredible two years with the team already and the latter being a record-breaking year claiming my fourth title, this now means I am fully focused to go after more. Let’s get 2024 underway!”

In addition to Sutton’s new deal, NAPA Racing UK have also reaffirmed their commitment to the series by also extending their partnership with Alliance Racing until the end of the 2026 campaign.

“This is a fantastic day for everyone involved in Alliance Racing,” said Pete Osborne, Alliance Racing Team Owner. “Since forming a partnership with NAPA, over 2 years ago, we have worked together to deliver success both on and off the track. We are excited to commit to 3 more years together and continue to grow from strength to strength for all our staff and sponsor partners.

“I wish to thank everyone involved with our team, their hard work and dedication is what make this partnership so successful. It has been fantastic to witness the growth of the NAPA brand in the UK and Europe through their support of UK motorsport. Especially the most prestigious series of them all, the British Touring Car Championship. We can’t wait to see NAPA Racing UK back on the grid in 2024.”
