Two-time British Touring Car Championship champion Alain Menu is returning to the series in 2014 with Team BMR.
Menu, competing in his first full BTCC season since 2000, will be behind the wheel of a Volkswagen Passat CC. His team mate will be Team BMR's second new signing, Árón Smith.
“This is exciting", said Menu. "The best times of my career have been in the BTCC, and it’s going to be nice to see many people I’ve not seen for many years.
"I’m well aware that it will be different with a new team and new cars, but I’ve been watching the races, have spoken to a lot of people about it and the championship is really picking up at the moment. With lots of competitors, spectators and live TV, there are many reasons to be here."
Team BMR, which joined the BTCC in 2013, has expanded from a one-car racing operation to four cars. It has also made 'significant' personnel changes and it aims to challenge its rivals for both the Drivers' and the Independent Teams' championships.
