Ash Sutton, 2017 BTCC Champion, remains with Team BMR Subaru for 2018 and Croucher Needham! Croucher Needham and CNM Advisory are excited to announce another year of support for British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) Champion Ash Sutton.

Ash had a highly eventful and ultimately successful second year in BTCC in 2017, his first with Subaru, culminating in him being crowned 2017 BTCC Champion.

Ash will remain with Team BMR 2018 and this year he will carry the number 1 on his Subaru Levorg Sports Tourer.  Speaking of the season ahead, Ash said:

“I am excited to have secured another season with Team BMR in my championship winning Subaru. Some people may have thought that I was automatically staying put but it’s never that simple! I am pleased to be carrying the Number 1 on the car, it’s a great way to show the hard work and determination myself and the team put in last year. I believe I will have all the correct tools to go into this season with the aim to defend my title, that’s all I am here to do.”

Simon Needham of Croucher Needham said of the company’s continued support of Ash:

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with Ash, Warren Scott and the rest of the team at Team BMR.  After being crowned the 2017 champion, there was no hesitation in us signing up for another year in support of Ash in his defense of his BTCC crown.  We look forward to the first round at Brands Hatch and will all be there cheering him on throughout the season.”

“CNM have been fantastic, I can’t thank them enough for their continued support. They were the final piece to my jigsaw puzzle at the beginning of 2016 helping me make that step up into the BTCC, they have only pursued my career ever since helping my dreams come true.”

The Croucher Needham team, along with Simon, wish Ash Sutton and Team BMR all the best for 2018 and look forward to what will hopefully be another successful season in BTCC.
