The British Touring Car Championship is a touring car racing series held each year in the United Kingdom, currently organised and administered by TOCA. It was established in 1958 as the British Saloon Car Championship and was renamed as the British Touring Car Championship in 1987.

Since then, the championship has been run to various national and international regulations over the years. 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.

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.

As a result, every one of them has the British Touring Car Championship to thank for being a part of their ongoing growth in the UK today. Honda, Subaru, BMW, Vauxhall, MG reap the rewards by fielding official ‘works’ teams in today’s championship while Ford and Toyota each provide support to teams on the grid.
