MG confirms plan to return to BTCC in 2015; continuation of partnership with Triple Eight Race Engineering

MG confirmed that it plans to return to the MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) in 2015 with the MG6 GT and continue the successful partnership with Triple Eight Race Engineering that saw MG lift the manufacturers championship in 2014.

"I am delighted
to be able to confirm that MG will return to defend its title as BTCC manufacturer champions in 2015. The three-year programme to race the MG6 GT with Triple Eight has proved so successful both on and off track that there was little doubt we would return in 2015," said Matthew Cheyne, Head of Marketing, MG.

MG's BTCC engineering partner Triple Eight Race Engineering is working on an exciting new-look driver line-up for 2015, which will see the MG6 GT's re-branded and given a fresh look, courtesy of a host of new sponsors joining the team next year.

"The MG brand is iconic and Triple Eight are the most successful team in the history of BTCC, as such together we are an attractive proposition and believe we will be in contention to defend our title next year. The BTCC has never been in such good shape and with a full grid containing a wide range of manufacturers and models, plus rising attendance and viewing figures, I am excited at the prospects for 2015 for MG, Triple Eight, our drivers, sponsors and of course our loyal and growing worldwide MG fan base," Cheyne continued.

Triple Eight Race Engineering, Managing Director and co-founder, Ian Harrison added, "We're very much looking forward to next year, our fourth with MG and 19th in the BTCC. Over the past three years we've taken more race wins than any other constructor and manufacturer, and next year we are intent on extending that run of form. There's little doubt that 2015 will be even more competitive than this year as teams get a handle on developing their cars, but we're confident we've assembled the right elements to take it to the other teams and ensure we're in the mix by the end of the year."
