BTC Touring


BTC Touring

In motor racing, BTC Touring (BTC-T) was the set of new regulations for the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) in the 21st Century, after the demise of the Supertouring category. The cars were based on standard bodyshells, but allowed plenty of modification to turn the car into a racecar and differentiate it from the Super Production class that would run alongside BTC Touring in the 2001 BTCC.

In chronological order of their appearances, the cars were:

*BTC-T Vauxhall Astra Coupe
*BTC-T Peugeot 406 Coupe
*BTC-T Alfa Romeo 147
*BTC-T Lexus IS200
*BTC-T MG ZS EX259
*BTC-T Honda Civic Type-R
*BTC-T Proton Impian
*BTC-T Peugeot 307
*BTC-T Vauxhall Vectra
*BTC-T Vauxhall Astra Sport Hatch
*BTC-T Honda Integra Type R
