Introduction to the British Touring Car Championship

the british touring car championship is one of the best-loved, most illustrious and famous motor racing championships in the world. only formula 1 and america’s nascar stock car series have longer histories – since its inception in 1958 it has attracted and captivated millions of fans around the world.

澳门官网真人赌博saloon car racing was a huge success from the very start, with the public packing into britain’s motor sport venues to watch the top drivers of the day compete in racing versions of their road cars at simply unbelievable speeds. it’s a lasting appeal that to this day continues to deliver a punch and panache that that is the envy of every other motor sporting arena in the uk.

traditional, great british names such as jaguar, austin, ford, mini, lotus, sunbeam and triumph – often with top international stars, including formula 1 drivers, at the wheel – were all winners in the first 20 years, each aware of the importance of using the btcc to showcase their latest models .

by the eighties, the btcc was moving with the times and beginning to develop a truly international flavour. mazda, toyota and alfa romeo were the first three winners of the decade as the championship continued to be run for several classes of car, but the mighty ford rs500 and bmw m3 – dominant as the nineties loomed – are probably the two most evocative models of the period.

it was in the nineties, however, that the btcc truly boomed. the championship was already beginning to grow in stature, with regular television coverage on the bbc’s flagship sports show, grandstand. when the decision was taken to make the btcc exclusively for 2-litre cars, it instantly created closer racing and attracted a host of high-profile manufacturers, teams and drivers to the series. combined with enhanced television coverage and marketing genius, this made the btcc essential viewing for millions throughout the uk – and many millions more around the world.

澳门官网真人赌博trackside crowd figures nudged the 40,000 mark as the calendar evolved into a major uk tour with events being added in scotland and wales. the social element of the championship quickly became important, and as is the case now, there was no substitute for ‘being there’. few other sports have enjoyed such a rapid growth in popularity.

澳门官网真人赌博unsurprisingly, manufacturers simply could not afford to miss out on the enormous marketing value of competing in the btcc and alfa romeo, audi, bmw, ford, honda, mazda, nissan, peugeot, renault, toyota, vauxhall and volvo were all quick to join the party. every one of them has the btcc to thank for being a part of their continued growth in the uk today. honda and mg continue to reap the rewards by fielding official ‘works’ teams in today’s championship while bmw, ford, proton and toyota each provide customer support to teams on the grid.

now more than twenty years on, that same 2-litre formula continues to provide one of motor sport’s most addictive, action-packed atmospheres for an audience of millions. it is the perfect platform for teams, drivers and sponsors to raise their profiles and reputations.

BTCC Key Rules and Regulations

Technical Overview

from the 2014 season onwards all cars are built to the same ngtc regulations. first introduced in 2011, these technical regulations are designed to dramatically reduce the design, build and running costs of the cars and engines. only ngtc cars are now eligible to compete in the btcc.

ngtc allows independent teams to compete on a level playing field against manufacturer-backed efforts by keeping costs down whilst at the same time rewarding precise engineering and all-important split-second strategy.

澳门官网真人赌博the foundation for ngtc is an emphasis on some common components – turbo, wastegate, intercoolers and ecu (engine control unit), six-speed sequential gearbox, subframe, brakes, dampers and suspension – which dramatically drives down costs for teams looking to compete in one of the world’s most attractive motor sport arenas.

澳门官网真人赌博teams have the option of running either toca’s unbranded ngtc-spec engine or, whether privateer or full manufacturer-backed entries, developing their own powerplant to the regulations, as long as it is from the same ‘family’ as their chosen model of car – all are 300+bhp 2-litre turbo-charged engines.


澳门官网真人赌博entry to the btcc requires a toca btcc licence (tbl). there are 30 permanent tbls available to teams, and allocations are prioritised as follows:

  • Existing teams that competed in at least 50 per cent of the 2013 BTCC season with NGTC machinery had automatic entry for the same number of cars in 2014, subject to fulfilment of the pre-registration requirements by 30 November
  • Existing teams with two or more NGTC cars received priority for one additional entry subject to validation of the entry by TOCA
  • Existing cars
  • New entries

澳门官网真人赌博eligible teams were then issued with a tbl which will secure each entry for a minimum of three seasons. teams may sell, gift, lease, assign or loan their tbl to other existing teams or eligible new entries on a season-long basis only, subject to the approval of toca as to the integrity of both recipient and transaction.

Race Weekend Format

there are 10 events in the current season, with each event run across a weekend (saturday and sunday).

on saturday there are two free practice sessions of 40 minutes and one qualifying session of 30 minutes

on sunday there are three btcc races

澳门官网真人赌博the points system is 20-17-15-13-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 for the top 15 finishers. this method of scoring is also be applied to independent drivers’ and teams’ championship and the overall teams’ – see full regs for details. single bonus points are awarded for the fastest qualifier, fastest laps and leading laps during races.

Dunlop Tyres

澳门官网真人赌博all teams in the btcc must use dunlop sportmaxx tyres. there are two dry compounds as well as the sportmaxx bluresponse tyre for wet conditions.

  • The medium or standard tyre is used in two of the three races per event. Teams must nominate which race they will use the soft compound tyre in before qualifying on Saturday, but this information is not released until Sunday morning
  • Teams may only use the soft tyre in each of the three races three times during the course of the season – meaning they can only use it in race three at a maximum of three events, race two at three events etc.
  • If the team chooses to use the soft tyre in a race that turns out to be wet, they have to attempt to use the soft tyre in the day’s next race. The soft tyre allocation does not carry over across race meetings

Race Grids

  • The grid for race one is decided during Saturday’s qualifying session
  • The grid for race two is based on drivers’ fastest laps from race one
  • The grid for race three is based on finishing positions, however there is also a reversed-grid element to the starting order. Cars that finished from sixth to tenth position in race two are put into a bowl, and one number is drawn at random. The corresponding car will start on pole, with the cars that finished ahead of it reversed i.e. if number six is chosen, the car that finished sixth in race two will start from pole ahead of the car that finished fifth, fourth, third etc.

Success Ballast

cars that are successful in the btcc must carry ballast (additional weight) in their cars. ballast is given to the top ten runners in the following allocations:

澳门官网真人赌博1st:75kg, 2nd:66kg 3rd:57kg, 4th:48kg, 5th:39kg, 6th:33kg, 7th:27kg, 8th:21kg, 9th:15kg, 10th:9kg

澳门官网真人赌博between events, ballast is allocated according to championship positions and is carried in qualifying and race one. for races two and three, ballast is allocated according to the finishing positions in race one and two respectively.

Fun facts

澳门官网真人赌博jason plato is the most successful driver at silverstone. his six wins put him two ahead of mat jackson around the national configuration of the track. plato also holds the qualifying lap record of 58.210s set last year on his way to pole position.
