Joe Holmes joins Team BMR
The latest addition to the ever-growing Team BMR Kart team is Joe Holmes. After racing sporadically for the past two seasons Joe has now joined one of the nations top teams for the remainder of the 2016 season. Joe has primarily raced at Dunkeswell Kart circuit and won his first race in his first season of racing, a very impressive fete for any drivers. Now Joe is stepping up to compete at the top level in British Karting. Joe will also be joining the Team BMR Academy to gain further experience with the championship winning British Touring Car team Team BMR. Joe’s 2016 program heavily focuses on both testing and racing around the UK’s most popular circuits, building his level of experience before the start of the 2017 season.
 
Joe’s first race with Team BMR will take place on the 10th of July at the ultra competitive Kimbolton Club meeting. Having never raced there Joe is using the meeting to learn the track and get his first taste of Senior X30’s. Following this Joe will continue then race at PFI and Whilton Mill before the end of the season. Racing at selected club meetings will give Joe a great advantage for the start of the 2017 season.
 
“Joe first tested with us at Rye House and straight away impressed us all. Not only is he very fast but his attitude and approach to racing is what really took our attention. Racing with us for the remainder of 2016 is a great way to learn the key tracks in the UK before committing to larger race program in 2017.”
