BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 reveals Macklin Motors-backed Hyundai

BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 reveals Macklin Motors-backed Hyundai

22.03.2023: BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 has taken the wraps off the Macklin Motors-backed Hyundai that Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship rookie Ronan Pearson will race during the 2023 campaign.


BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 has taken the wraps off the Macklin Motors-backed Hyundai that Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship rookie Ronan Pearson will race during the 2023 campaign.



The talented youngster from Kelty, close to the Knockhill race circuit, makes the move up into the BTCC this season on the back of a successful year in the MINI CHALLENGE with EXCELR8 in 2022 - where he secured multiple race wins and finished fourth in the championship standings.



The 21-year-old’s switch into touring cars a year ahead of schedule was made possible thanks to the support of Macklin Motors - a Scottish motor retail brand that is part of the same group as EXCELR8’s primary partner Bristol Street Motors.



The livery on the #14 Hyundai i30 Fastback N that Ronan will race in his debut campaign has been designed to showcase Macklin Motors’ corporate colours - as well as those of Bristol Street Motors - and features a striking blend of red, blue and white.



The Macklin Motors logo takes pride of place along the side of the car, with the Macklin Motors shield incorporated into the design across the rear quarters and tailgate, as well as on the bonnet.



Macklin Motors has grown to become one of the leading motor retailers in Scotland, operating a total of 17 dealerships across the country - including Hyundai showrooms in both Edinburgh and Dunfermline.



A lightning flash and NASCAR-style numbering both enhance the design, which also showcases a number of Ronan’s personal sponsors - including William Waugh, Beaver Broadband and Third Millennium.



Ronan is due to sample the striking Hyundai for the first time this week as his pre-season testing programme gets underway, with focus now turning towards the opening meeting of the season at Donington Park in late April.





Ronan Pearson, #14 BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 Hyundai i30 Fastback N, said:

"Having always dreamed of racing in the BTCC, it was a surreal feeling to announce my move into the series last month. However, that was nothing compared to the feeling that came from walking in to see the Hyundai in the Macklin Motors livery with my name on the side.



"I think the car looks fantastic and I’m hugely proud to have this opportunity thanks to Macklin Motors, EXCELR8 and all of the loyal sponsors who have supported me to get to this stage in my career.



"With my car all liveried up and ready to go, everything suddenly feels very real and I can’t wait to hit the track to get pre-season testing underway and start working towards the opening rounds at Donington Park next month."



Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Macklin Motors, said:

"The livery on Ronan’s car truly reflects the Macklin Motors brand and looks fantastic.



"Our dealerships’ colleagues across Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dunfermline are eager for the racing to start now.



"We are all hoping for an exciting and successful season. We wish Ronan, and his fellow drivers within the BRISTOL STREET MOTORS with EXCELR8 team the very best of luck, and many podium finishes!"





Justina Williams, BRISTOL STREET MOTORS EXCELR8 Team Owner, said:

"It’s fantastic for us to be able to show off Ronan’s livery ahead of his debut season, which we know is going to stand out for fans watching trackside.



"The support of Macklin Motors has been key in allowing Ronan to make the step up into the BTCC, and the colour scheme really showcases their brand as well as the other Scottish sponsors who are involved in his programme.



"We have high hopes for Ronan this season, and we’re confident that he will be able to deliver some results that are as eye-catching as his race car as the year goes on!"
