MG announce new driver lineup for 2017

Surprised there hasn't been a thread about this already: MG RCiB Insurance Racing announce exciting changes for 2017 British Touring Car Championship - Latest News - News - MG Motor UK Ltd

Ashley Sutton has today joined BMR/Subaru: https://www.autosport.com/news/repor...-at-bmr-subaru

I thought Cook and Sutton were meant to be a long term thing so surprised to see them both go after just the one season.

Join the club, I was hoping they might actually keep some good drivers for a couple of years at least.

Bit gutted we have the Jumped up smarmy Aron driving for us, I just don't like the bloke, having said that he does have some pace etc, who knows how things will go.

Daniel well can't say I have ever noted any of his races really I am sure he is a decent racer and maybe will deliver some results.

Sadly the corporate bull**** doesn't wash with me, brand ambassadors, so far that has been said before. consistency is required and soon there won't be any drivers left to go to 888/MG.

I worry that there won't be a presence in the BTCC in 2019 after this 3 year deal is up, unless they release a new 6 or larger new 3 and race that instead.

It does make me wonder what the issue is with driver changes truthfully, is it 888 or is it MG or is it just drivers being drivers.

Bearing in mind 888/BMR is more or less the same team, it seems MG are just a feeder team for others to pick up the following season. Saying that, Dan Lloyd was superb last year, outpacing the factory Hondas in his 3 rounds.
