Statement from Cooper Colchester BMW
Big News – suffice to say we are Buzzing!
“Cooper Colchester 2020 Motorsport announcement.
We mentioned yesterday that we had a big announcement for 2020, and here it is.
This morning we met with Carl Boardley (Motorsport) and his team to have final discussions regarding a sponsorship deal for 2020. We are over the moon to announce we have a secured a deal for us to be working together moving forwards.
In 2020 Carl will be racing the WSR-built BMW 1 series British Touring car, in conjunction with HARD Motorsport. This is the very car that Rob Collard raced in the British Touring car series for BMW Motorsport themselves.
The car achieved 37 wins, and 118 podiums in its time in the BTCC, so has a proven pedigree!
As many of you Motorsport fans will know the BTCC is the back bone of Motorsport in the UK, and dates back to 1958 when the series was named the British Saloon car series.
We are immensely pleased to be able to work with a local Race Driver, and support Carl in his second season in the BTCC. With a long and proven track record as a competitive and successful driver, we cannot wait to see what can be achieved in the BMW for 2020.
Carl Boardley Motorsport is incredibly active on social media bringing race day footage, VLOG’s from the garage, and much more so get following Carl now. Instagram is carlboardley41.racing and Facebook is Carlboardleymotorsport
The first race on the calendar is Sunday the 29th of March, at Donnington Race circuit. With the entire race weekends shown on ITV4. (Qualifying on Saturdays)
As always keep your eyes on our Social media for opportunities to attend Race days throughout 2020.
We will be running competitions and events throughout the year that will give you chance to get up close to British Touring car action!”
