Thruxton: Subaru withdraw from Thruxton on safety grounds

Subaru Team BMR's quartet of Levorg's will take no further part of the BTCC Thruxton weekend after being withdrawn on safety grounds.
Subaru Team BMR's quartet of Levorg's will take no further part of the British Touring Car Championship Thruxton weekend after being withdrawn on safety grounds.

BMR's decision to side-line it's fleet of Levorg's stems from James Cole's fiery exit from Donington Park.

The outfit had fitted a re-designed high pressure fuel rail component in a bid to rectify the issue, which caused Cole's Levorg to catch fire during race one at Donington Park.

However, the data gathered from the re-manufactured part in question shown evidence of stress following qualifying - prompting Subaru to ground it's BMR challenger for the remainder of the Thruxton event.

Colin Turkington has qualified as the highest Subaru runner in 13th and believed a top-ten result could have been possible, given the Levorg's ability to look after the Dunlop rubber.
