NAPA Racing UK 2024 Launch

Date: Monday 11 March 2024

NAPA Racing UK returns for its 3rd season, this time as champions. Ahead of the season opener NAPA Racing UK is proud to unveil the 2024 lineup and liveries that will be competing across the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), MINI Challenge, BRISCA F1 and the British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC). NAPA Racing is going all out to add to their record-breaking 2023 season. All vehicles will be decked out once again in the iconic yellow and blue colours of NAPA and NAPA Auto Parts. For 2024, there is an added splash of white to tie into the US-based NASCAR team.

The Ford Focus STs prepared by Alliance Racing are set to return, with Ash Sutton's car proudly supporting the #1 and gold plate to identify the reigning champion. Whilst the silhouette of the car may look similar to last year, don’t let outward appearance deceive you. Chief engineer Tony Carrozza and the team have sweated the details during the off-season to ensure the NAPA cars are once again challenging for victories and overall honours. Ash leads an unchanged driver lineup with Dan Cammish, Dan Rowbottom, and Sam Osbourne, all aiming to repeat the historic season and retain the hattrick of titles won in 2023.

Joining the 2024 NAPA Racing UK lineup are three JCW MINI Challenge cars for Jamie Osborne, Lewis Selby, and Cam Richardson. Expect to see the stunning NAPA JCW MINIs challenging for glory. All three MINIs will be built and run from Alliance Racing's brand-new state-of-the-art race shop in Northampton.

Reigning British Truck Racing Championship (BTRC) Division 2 Champion Paul Rivett returns to the championship to defend his title and adds sponsors CV Components and Top Truck to his 1000bhp MAN race truck. BRISCA F1 racer Jack France completes the line-up in his 600bhp Chevrolet-powered F1 monster. Jack will once again be battling it out in the #216 machine on the shale and tarmac ovals across the UK.
