NAPA Racing UK has completed the most hotly anticipated livery reveal of the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship pre-season, with superteam Dan Cammish and Ash Sutton unveiling the stunning Ford Focus ST with which they will each mount a bid for this season’s title.
Since confirming its arrival into the country’s premier motor racing category with top team Motorbase Performance late last year, NAPA Racing UK has garnered huge attention with fans around the world eagerly awaiting the launch of the entry’s livery for its maiden season in the BTCC.
NAPA Racing’s iconic blue and yellow features prominently, with a truly striking design ensuring the twin hybrid-powered front-wheel drive Fords will be absolutely eye-catching on the capacity 32 car grid. If there’s an early award for the best-looking car in BTCC 2022, NAPA Racing UK wins it!
NAPA, the number one brand of Alliance Automotive Group, is breaking new ground this year as part of the BTCC having famously enjoyed a rich and incredibly successful history in US motorsport with partnerships in both NASCAR and IndyCar.
Cammish and reigning BTCC Champion Sutton undoubtedly form the strongest and most capable driver pairing on the grid for the new season, with both set to push each other on to new heights as part of Motorbase-run NAPA Racing UK. One thing is for sure, if the No.1 and No.9 Ford Focus cars go as fast as they look, all of the ingredients are there for a tremendous season.
Pete Osborne – Motorbase Performance Team Owner and Team Principal:
“Introducing NAPA Racing UK – what a fantastic livery! We’re all so pleased with how it’s come out, the car image, the launch and the general vibrancy brought to the grid by NAPA. Everyone at NAPA has been fantastic to work with, they’ve brought a new energy with them. Everything is bright and exciting and marks the perfect way to start this relationship with Motorbase in the BTCC.
“All of the guys and girls at Motorbase have been hard at work all winter with the development of the cars, which has been going on behind the scenes, and this is just part of what they’ve been working on. We are also aiming to hit the track for the first time with the 2022 car this week, so it’s all exciting stuff as we prepare for a huge season ahead.”
