After three years with the Team BMR outfit, Technical Director Carl Faux is to leave the British Touring Car Championship team for a new role with Walkinshaw Andretti United in the Australian Supercars Championship.
Faux joined the team together with Jason Plato for the 2015 season, when the outfit ran Volkswagen CC machinery, before being an integral part in the design and development of the new Subaru Levorg GT car for the 2016 season.
“My BTCC journey is at an end,” said Faux, who was lead designer on the Subaru project. “My time in the championship has run its course and I am going half a world away to try my hand in Australian Supercars, a new challenge in a new country will be nothing less than an experience. As they say, a change is as good as a rest.
“I know that with the team that BMR have they will continue to grow and improve. The seeds were planted a long time ago, they have been watered and nurtured and now it is time for the next generation to bloom.
“I will be keeping a close eye on the successes they have ahead of them, I know there will be many, and I wish BMR every success going forward.”
BMR Team Principal Warren Scott thanked Faux for his efforts with the team in the three years that they worked together.
“Carl has been a pleasure to work with over the past three seasons,” said Scott. “He has brought a tremendous amount of knowledge to the team which has aided BMR in its growth and development as a front-running BTCC team.
“I wish Carl good luck for the future and would like to thank him for all his efforts and great achievements that he has brought to BMR.”
