West Surrey Racing has announced new joint team sponsors of JCT600 and GardX, which will be plastered over the BMWs of Sam Tordoff and Rob Collard.

The team made a clean sweep of the British Touring Car Championship titles last season and welcome new young driver Tordoff to the team, who joins the experienced Collard. Three-time WTCC champion Andy Priaulx also joins the WSR team in a third BMW 1 Series.

JCT600 founder, Jack Tordoff, was a successful international rally driver in the 1960s and 1970s. His grandson Sam now steps up with the WSR team after joining from MG, where the Yorkshireman claimed two BTCC victories and 10 further podiums.

"I am absolutely delighted to have joined WSR and to be continuing my long-term partnership with JCT600 and GardX," said Tordoff. "We have already had many great times together - including a number of victories - but this is by far our biggest and most exciting challenge yet. We have proved we can achieve great things and my career would simply not be possible without their support."

"The cars look absolutely stunning and it's great to welcome JCT600 and GardX to the WSR family," Collard added. "We have proved the WSR-run BMWs are the leading lights in the BTCC and we're keen to show we can stay out front and contend for yet more championships in 2015."

JCT600 are a respected motor retailer with 50 dealerships across the North of England and have represented the BMW brand in Yorkshire since 1978.
