Crees leaves BTC Racing

One of the most popular drivers on the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship grid Michael Crees has parted company with BTC Racing it has been announced.

The Broadstairs race ace is the current Jack Sears Trophy Champion and was looking forward to a second season in the Honda Civic. However, today it has been announced that he and the team have parted ways just days before the 2021 season is due to get underway.

Having only joined the BTCC grid in 2019 with Team Hard Racing, the series fan quickly established himself as a fan favourite and he will be a massive miss on the grid in 2021.

Steve Dudman, BTC Racing Owner and Team Principal, said: “On behalf of everyone at BTC Racing, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Michael for his participation with the team in the British Touring Car Championship. It’s a shame the partnership isn’t continuing, but we wish him well in his future endeavours.”

It is envisaged that BTC Racing will announce a replacement in due course.
