Bowker BMW Extends Partnership with Ciceley Motorsport Team

Wed 06 April 2022 11.30

Bowker BMW have extended their partnership to support a North West-based pursuit of the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.

Last year, Bowker BMW became the new official parts provider for the Car Gods with Ciceley Motorsport Race Team.

Bowker BMW will also continue to support Ciceley Motorsport with a sponsored car for Blackburn-based driver Adam Morgan. The eye-catching matt black BMW X4 has been signwritten with Bowker BMW and Ciceley Motorsport logos. The car is predicted to clock up over 5,000 miles throughout the North West and between UK circuits throughout the racing season. 

Bowker Motor Group director Chris Eccles said: “We loved being involved last year and we are excited to be involved again. We will help with parts and provide Adam with the new BMW X4. Last year, the team’s first season back in a BMW, saw podiums and wins for Adam in a solid race season. We’re keeping everything crossed for more placings for the team in 2022.”

Last season was Ciceley Motorsport’s first season driving BMWs. Adam Morgan enjoyed two wins including a double podium at Oulton Park. After their first season driving BMWs, the team will hope to finish even higher than their 9th place in the team standings this season.

Competing in his 11th season in BTCC, Adam Morgan is upbeat about the team’s prospects for the approaching campaign. Adam said: “Bowker BMW was a big part of the team's success last year. It is wonderful news to have the local dealership on board once again. Travelling between races and testing can be long and arduous; even more draining than the races themselves sometimes! The new BMW X4 will play a crucial role in the team logistics and that will be a huge help for me and the team.”

Following an extensive pre-season testing programme for the Car Gods Ciceley Motorsport team, the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season will get underway at Donington Park on 23rd-24th April.

The team has just revealed their line up for the coming season which, this year, includes BTCC support race front runner George Gamble. George will partner Adam in their pair of Car Gods backed BMW 330e M Sport Saloons for his debut season in the Championship.

Adam added: “It’s fantastic to have George join the team for this year, his pedigree in rear wheel drive machinery on the TOCA package is second to none, and after our first couple of meetings together he has fit straight into the team dynamic. With a learning year under our belts last season with the BMW’s, we are in a brilliant position to have a proper run at the title in 2022”.

Bowker and Ciceley have been pillars of the North West business community for over 100 years and almost 50 years respectively.
