Following on from last season, Carrier will support the team’s hybrid electric car for all 10 races of this year’s championship.

In 2022, the British Touring Car Championship was the first major touring car series in the world to integrate hybrid power into every car, pioneering a more sustainable future for the sport.

“Carrier is a long-time supporter of customer sustainability efforts and we are excited about the integration of hybrid power in the sport,” said Carrier Commercial HVAC UK and Ireland’s commercial director Oliver Sanders. 

Carrier joined Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport during the unveiling of this season’s new BMW 330e M Sport challenger car on 21 March. Official car testing gets underway this month, before the race campaign begins over the weekend of 27 and 28 April.
