Milltek Sport gears up for more motorsport success in 2016

Milltek in Motorsport 2016: click to enlargeThe season’s finally here that we’ve all been waiting for and with BTCC at Brands Hatch looming this weekend we thought it was time to have a little run down of what to expect from this season.

This year we have teamed up with Stewart Lines who is getting ready to face his second season under the banner of his own team (Maximum Motorsport) in his Milltek backed Ford Focus ST. Also in the line-up is Motorbase Performance’s Mat Jackson and Pirektek Racing Andrew Jordan in their Milltek equipped Focus ST’s and BMR’s Plato, Turkington, Scott and Cole in their Milltek equipped brand new Subaru Levorg’s. Who will come out on top and lift the 2016 BTCC Trophy, you’ll have to tune in to find out.

On the other side of the track we have our brand ambassador’s Tom Onslow-Cole and Lucas Orrock who are both ready to start the racing season in style.

We are delighted to be working alongside Tom for a sixth season and one which is sure to be another great one for him; competing in both the Blancpain Endurance Series and 24H Series, totalling eleven races in Europe and the Middle East. Tom is an integral part of the Milltek team now and we are really pleased to have him on board for another year.

Milltek Sport continue to sponsor Lucas Orrock after a successful year in the VW Racing Cup and the endurance Golf in the 24H Series. We are delighted that Lucas has signed a deal to compete in a TCR SPEC 2016 SEAT Leon in the highly competitive SEAT Sport Eurocup championship as well as racing an endurance spec LEON Cup Racer in the 24h Series, both with Zest Racecar Engineering (ZRE). We were keen for him to get into the international field and are confident in his abilities to deliver great results all round.

And that brings us to Craig Lomax. Xtreme Motorsport team owner and driver Craig runs a Milltek Sport system on his Citroen C2 and has continued to prove his skills within the British Super 1600 Championship. Craig and his XtremeRX team have already opened 2016 MSA British Rallycross Championship assault at Croft circuit with an emphatic win. The Milltek backed driver will also be on the grid for round 1 of the European Super1600 championship in Montalegre, Portugal. The first of many planned European outings this year. The XtremeRX family is also set to grow with the addition of two new drivers so watch this space!

Across the English channel we have Dale Lomas competing in the VLN Endurance Series at Nuerburgring, Germany. Thanks to the amazing new partnership between Milltek Sport and Manheller Racing Dale will be competing for Team BTG in this gruelling 10 race series in 2016 in a new Fiesta ST 1.6 Turbo.

Finally, we continue as the headline sponsor of the Milltek Sport VW Racing Cup and also continue to support the Maximum VAG Trophy, with both series exclusively running Milltek Sport exhaust systems across all cars within these championships.

So, a massive welcome to the season and good luck to all our drivers in 2016……show us what you’re made of!
