Josh Price’s participation in the rest of the TCR UK weekend at Knockhill remains in doubt after the Team BMR driver suffered from an engine failure in Saturday practice in Scotland.
Price was competing with a new engine that had only completed 60 laps when it expired after just three laps in Saturday’s 30-minute practice session.
TouringCars.Net understands that the team are attempting to source a spare unit ahead of qualifying at 14:55 BST.
BMR are the second Honda team to encounter mechanical dramas at Knockhill, after Sean Walkinshaw Racing suffered from a broken front wishbone on Friday and have been forced to source a spare from JAS Motorsport in Italy, with there being a lack of spare parts in the paddock.
Price is set to make his and the team’s first foray into TCR in Scotland this weekend.
Update: BMR have been able to fit the spare engine held by Pyro Motorsport and believe that Price will be able to take part in qualifying. JAS Motorsport are expected to provide Pyro with a replacement spare engine as a result.
