The cars and stars of the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship officially broke cover this week with Britain’s premier motorsport series launching its all-new hybrid era at Thruxton Circuit.
In 2019, Series Organiser TOCA appointed world-renowned Cosworth Electronics to design and develop the new TOCA Hybrid system – and now the BTCC proudly becomes the first major touring car series in the world to integrate hybrid power into all of its race cars.
Drivers will be in control of when to deploy the hybrid system via a button on the steering wheel, which will see cars receive up to 15 seconds per lap of additional hybrid power – a benefit that can strategically be used to either attack or defend during racing conditions.
Toyota Gazoo Racing UK has completed their driver line-up for the 2022 British Touring Car Championship, signing Ricky Collard to drive a Corolla alongside established team pilot Rory Butcher.
Fuel technology expert SulNOx Group PLC is offering a huge discount on its innovative fuel additives to celebrate its partnership with the Legends Cars National Championship.
Earlier this year, SulNOx Group announced its partnership with the Championship as part of ambitious plans to clean up motorsport.
