Subaru will take part in the British Touring Car Championship in 2016 with championship-winning drivers Jason Plato and Colin Turkington at the wheel for Team BMR.

Warren Scott's squad has inked a deal with the Japanese firm and will run estate Subaru Levorgs in the category.

Scott will again join Turkington and Plato on the driver strength and another car might be added to the line-up.

The car will be fitted with a two-litre turbocharged Mountune Race Engines-developed powerplant.

Although the car is four-wheel drive in its road-going guise, it will be rear-wheel drive in the BTCC following a rule tweak last year.

Scott said: "I have made no secret that I wanted to take the team to the next level, and that meant getting a factory deal.

"Subaru has really engaged with this programme already.

"They are very fired up about it and this is the start of a great new chapter for us.

"The Levorg is Subaru's newest car and that is the one they want to promote, which is why it has been chosen.
