Bradley Burns and Pyro Motorsport will take part in the 2019 ADAC TCR Germany series, with the Brit graduating from the Renault UK Clio Cup with the UK-based outfit.

Burns took part in the final three events of the Renault UK Clio Cup in 2017 with Pyro, before going on to complete a full season in 2018 with the team.

The 17-year-old scored two victories and five podiums on his way to fifth overall in the drivers’ championship standings.

Pyro, meanwhile, also took part in the TCR UK series in 2018, running a Honda Civic Type-R for Ollie Taylor throughout the season before also taking part in two rounds of the TCR Europe series with Taylor at the end of the year.

“2019 is going to be an exciting season for Bradley and Pyro Motorsport as we move onto TCR Germany,” said Pyro Team Principal Mark Hunt.

“Bradley instantly got comfortable in the car and pre-season testing has gone even better than anticipated. He shows maturity beyond his years and is an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Burns is looking forward to making his first steps into competitive touring car racing after his years in one-make cup racing in the UK.

“I’m really happy to be continuing with Pyro Motorsport,” said Burns. “After last season, this is the next logical step for us and I really feel at home with the team.

“There will be new tracks and new challenges but I can’t wait for the season to start!”
