NAPA RACING UK CONFIRMS 2024 BTCC LINE-UP

Following a stunning 2023 season that saw it win the Drivers’, Manufacturers’ and Teams’ Championships, NAPA Racing UK will once again compete in the biggest series in the UK with a four-car assault on the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, alongside partners Alliance Racing.

An unchanged driver line-up will be led by defending champion Ash Sutton, who goes into 2024 looking to become the first driver in history to win five Drivers’ championship titles.

Ash equalled the record held by Andy Rouse and Colin Turkington last year after a dominant campaign that included no fewer than twelve wins, with the 30-year-old emerging as the class of the field in a season that will live long in the memory.

“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, the car finished in a good place 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,” said Sutton.

Dan Cammish embarks on his third year in NAPA Racing UK colours, looking to join Ash in challenging for the championship having shown race-winning pace across the past two seasons.

The multiple Porsche Carrera Cup title winner was a three-time victor last season as he played his part in the team’s championship success and goes into 2024 amongst the fancied runners in the battle for top honours.

“I am very much looking forward to continuing with NAPA Racing UK for 2023. 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,” said Cammish.

Daniel Rowbottom returns for his second season as part of the NAPA Racing UK family on the back of his strongest BTCC campaign to date last year. A race winner at Thruxton, Daniel secured his best championship finish so far and set a new personal best for points scored. With these two records, he will now be looking to join Cammish and Sutton in the hunt for championship honours.

“To go into 2024 with NAPA Racing UK is an amazing feeling, 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!” said Rowbottom.

The four-car line-up is once again completed by Sam Osborne. A career-best finish at Donington Park, combined with a total of 14 points finishes (almost doubling his previous best), meant that like Rowbottom – Osborne enjoyed the best season of his BTCC career in 2023. Osborne will once again be challenging for the Jack Sears Trophy title.

NAPA Racing UK will also continue to have a presence elsewhere on the TOCA package, with a three-car entry into the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE.

Ahead of the first race of the season for NAPA Racing UK, the team will be revealing the new livery and driver’s racewear for the season ahead in the coming weeks.
