Adam Morgan’s Ciceley Motorsport have revealed a new main sponsor and livery for the 2017 British Touring Car Championship, as MAC Tools will dominate the race winning Mercedes A-Class. The unveiling took place at an event at Silverstone this morning.
Mac Tools has sponsored Morgan for the past three seasons, however they have upped their involvement for the coming season, while former title sponsor WIX have reduced their coverage on the car. Mac Tools has agreed a three year deal to be the main sponsor of Morgan.
Liam Kettlewell, Mac Tools Sales Director, said: “We are thrilled to step up our involvement in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship with Ciceley Motorsport. We have seen the team go from strength-to-strength during the past three years and now is the time to maximise our relationship with them by becoming title sponsor. Ciceley is a fast growing, family-run, highly skilled and professional team who no doubt will continue to succeed.” Kettlewell added that “We can’t wait for the season to begin”
Morgan added, “The relationship we’ve built and this three-year deal illustrates the commitment the company has to the team and the championship. I can’t wait to stand on the top step of the podium in my Mac Tools overalls for the first time and repay the company’s faith in us.”
Norman Burgess, the team’s commercial director added, “This is a fantastic deal for us. We started off as a little family team after Adam won the Ginetta Supercup title and have grown from a garage at Adam’s home to purpose-built facilities with a BTCC and Renault Clio team.
“To have a company of the standing of Mac Tools come on board as our title sponsor really puts us on the map and cements our future. We want to become a manufacturer team and having a sponsor at this level on board for three years gives us that platform from which to work.”
Since joining the BTCC in 2012 Morgan has impressed many and has won 4 races with a best result of seventh in the championship in 20213. The car will be first seen on track at the British Touring Car Championship Season Launch on Thursday 16th March.
