RAR announces end of WIX deal

Rob Austin Racing announces it won't run under the WIX Racing banner in the 2014 BTCC season
Rob Austin Racing has announced that its sponsorship deal with WIX Filters won't continue into the 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

WIX first joined forces with the team for the 2012 season finale at Brands Hatch before a full-season deal in 2013 that saw Rob Austin's Audi A4 running under the WIX Racing banner.

Despite a successful season that included a breakthrough victory for at Rockingham, the team has now confirmed that the partnership won't continue into 2014, with the Audi outfit seeking alternative backers for the new season.

"Sadly we are announcing that WIX Filters will not be continuing with its support of our team through into 2014,” a statement from the team read. "While we greatly appreciate its support and our partnership in 2013, unfortunately its requirements for 2014 conflicted with arrangements already in place with existing sponsors.

“Our attentions now are fully focused on bringing on board exciting new partners for 2014 and the future. Clearly there is now a golden opportunity for other brands to join one of the most popular team-driver combinations in Britain's premier motor racing championship and experience the same levels of exposure we have shown we are capable of delivering.

“Our fanbase is among the biggest of any team in the BTCC and we are sure our many thousands of amazing supporters will show the same dedication to our new sponsors as they did our old.”
