Dublin, Ireland – Thursday 19th March 2015: Dublin based car parts e-tailor MicksGarage.com have just signed a fresh deal to support Árón Smith, Ireland’s leading light in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for 2015.
Smith, who remains with Team BMR for a second consecutive season, produced the team’s debut race victory at Oulton Park before following it up with a second victory at Snetterton on route to finishing ninth overall in the championship.
The partnership with Árón and MicksGarage.com flourished in 2014, with several competition winners enjoying unprecedented access to Árón and Team BMR during the course of the season. In addition to this, four lucky winners got the opportunity to benefit from a race experience day at Mondello Park under the tuition of Árón himself using the circuit’s array of performance machinery. The renewed partnership looks set to offer BTCC fans even more opportunities to get up close and personal with the multiple British Touring Car race winner in 2015.
Árón Smith – Driver, Team BMR:
“I am absolutely thrilled to welcome MicksGarage.com back into the team for 2015. There is no better recognition for the collective efforts of the British Touring Car Championship and ourselves when our partners renew their association. We had a lot of fun together in 2014, and knowing some of the exciting plans we have put together for 2015, I believe this will be another great year.”
Rob King – Content Manager, MicksGarage.com:
“2015 is shaping up to be an epic year in the British Touring Car Championship & to say we’re excited to be involved again is a huge understatement! Árón proved last year that he’s a force to be reckoned with, this year his challenge is arguably even greater, but what a challenge it is! We’re working together on some exciting projects that will give fans an amazing insight into the BTCC and really put them in the driving seat! Roll on March 24th!”
The 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship gets underway with the official Media Day at Donington Park on Tuesday 24th March where over 30 cars signed up for the 2015 running of the series will be unveiled.
