Colin Turkington

Colin Turkington is WSR’s longest-serving driver, making his BTCC debut with the team in 2002 and winning every one of his record-equalling four overall titles – plus four Independents’ crowns – with their BMWs. Since his return to the Sunbury-on-Thames team in 2017, he has been a constant title contender. He’s back for a crack at a fifth crown as he seeks to re-write history in what is his 20th year in the BTCC.

Jake Hill

The Kent racer has been a revelation since joining WSR in 2022 and taking pole position on his team debut.  Third in the standings in each of the last two seasons – his 2023 campaign featuring a career-best six wins as he took the title fight down to the final weekend of the year – has marked him out as a championship contender. He is once again powered by the Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport hybrid BMW 330e M Sport.

Adam Morgan

Adam Morgan is no stranger to success in the BTCC. With 11 race wins and more than 40 podiums, the former Ginetta G50 champion is one of the most-popular drivers in the series. Four podium finishes in his first year as a Team BMW driver in 2023 have left him hungry to mount the top step this time around and help BMW to an historic 10th Manufacturers’ crown.

Bobby Thompson

Fan favourite Bobby Thompson joins Zeus Cloud Racing with WSR from the third round of the 2024 season. The Hornchurch racer made his BTCC debut in 2018 as the reigning VW Cup UK champion. He scored his first podium finish in 2022 on his way to Jack Sears Trophy title glory and last year bagged two more including a career-best second-place finish. A maiden race victory is a clear aim for Bobby and his purple car, ‘Barney’.
