A team that seemed to come out of nowhere to sign up two of the British Touring Car Championship's biggest guns, yet win the title with a young star in only his second year in the series; another team that operated on its own for the first time last season, but found itself hamstrung by an ageing car to which it had no IP rights; and a car that was so unsuccessful when it stumbled onto the track in 2015 that its best result was a mere 15th, yet was resurrected four years later because engineers believed it was the key to future BTCC success.
It has to be said that the merger of Team BMR and Laser Tools Racing - under the latter's banner - and their adoption of the Infiniti Q50 is one of the stories to follow in the BTCC this season. And that's even before you factor in that leading the driving strength is none other than 2017 BTCC champion Ash Sutton, that very 'young star' we mentioned in the opening paragraph.
Like all good stories, it's important to pull the threads together. BMR initially entered the BTCC in 2013, with team owner Warren Scott driving a SEAT, before absorbing current Team Hard boss Tony Gilham's eponymous squad for 2014 and taking on his Volkswagen CCs and Vauxhall Insignias.
