Alan Morrison (born 3 March 1968 in Killyleagh) is a British racing driver who resides in Northern Ireland.

Racing career[edit]

Morrison driving for Team Aon at the Oulton Park round of the 2009 BTCC season.

After spending his early racing years in motocross, he first started circuit racing in the Ford Fiesta championship in 1997 and again this time winning the championship in 1998. He entered the Vauxhall Vectra Sri Challenge in 1999, finishing 2nd on points. For 2000 Morrison was in the British Touring Car Championship's newly introduced class B. With his Peugeot 306 Gti he won the class championship with 13 class B wins. He is probably best known that year for a huge crash at Brands Hatch where he went into a barrel roll going round the Grand Prix circuit. In 2002 he got a BTCC touring class works drive for Honda, ran by Arena in a Honda Civic Type-R. He drove with Andy Priaulx as team mate and finished 9th in the championship, including one race win, at Donington Park. He stayed with the team the following year with a new team mate in Matt Neal, and finished an impressive 5th on points.[1] Morrison returned to the BTCC in 2009, as a late entry back with Arena Motorsport (under the Team Aon banner) in a Ford Focus ST but left the team after the Oulton Park weekend.[2]
