Triple Eight Racing BTCC
Dann signs for the BMR Academy
The BLG Racing backed driver, Jack Dann has become the latest signing for the BMR Academy. Jack joins the team not only to race in Junior X30 but also to benefit from the Academy structure that the BTCC winning team, Team BMR, have in place.

The BMR Academy structure has grown in strength throughout the 2017 season with drivers finishing regularly on the podium in the LGM and winning throughout the country in club championships. Jack has joined the team for the remainder of the 2017 season with aims to continue into 2018 to step up to the next level of motorsport with Team BMR.

Jack will be racing in Junior X30 for the remainder of the season within the BMR Kart Team, focusing on learning new tracks and fine-tuning his driving before a full fledge attack in the 2018 season. Jack began racing at the age of eight and his since progressed through the ranks of cadets, into Junior TKM and now makes the switch to the nations most competitive junior class, Junior X30.

“We are always looking for new talent to join our team and what Jack has demonstrated this season at Kimbolton has been very impressive. To date, Jack and his family have run themselves so this will be a big step for him but I’m certain he is capable of it. He will have the full support of BMR to ensure he has all the tools to be a regular front runner.”

Jack’s highlight of the season came earlier in the summer with his first podium at a MSA level at Kimbolton. The Hunts Kart Club is renowned for having an ultra-competitive TKM grid, which has been a great proving ground for Jack.  Now focused on learning the new class and circuits, Jack will have a coveted place in the BMR Academy to make sure the transition is seamless.  His test program begins this month with the aim for his first race to be next month at Whilton Mill.

“I couldn't believe it to start with, as this is a team I watch on tv, so to be working with them is unreal and a great opportunity for me to learn and to progress in motorsport, I'm really looking forward to working with the team. I want to thank BMR and BLG Racing for their continued support and helping put this together for me.“
