Team BMW reveal bold new look for 2020 BTCC season

Thursday, March 12 2020

Team BMW has unveiled a fresh new livery for the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season, with the iconic black, red and blue colours of the Bavarian marque returning to the BMW 330i M Sport cars.

Reigning champion Colin Turkington, plus Andrew Jordan and Tom Oliphant all return to this year's grid, with Jordan and Turkington clocking up a total of 14 race wins and claiming a sixth BTCC manufacturers' title in 2019.

Heading into the 2020 season, Turkington will be gunning for an unprecedented fifth drivers' trophy. Last year saw the BMW wheelman secure a record-equaling fourth BTCC drivers' crown in last gasp fashion in the final race on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, after holding off title challengers Andrew Jordan and Dan Cammish.

West Surrey Racing Team Principal Dick Bennetts said: "As ever in this business, the winter 'off-season' is almost busier than the racing season itself, with countless hours put in back at the workshop to ensure we extract every last ounce of performance available. The BMW 330i M Sport was an immediate success last year and the results it achieved out-of-the-box were something very special indeed, which is testament to the skills and stellar efforts of the entire WSR crew.

"We believe we have further developed and honed the BMW over the past few months, and whilst we are well aware that our competitors will similarly have made progress, we are confident in our capabilities and expect to be firmly in the fight."

Colin Turkington said: "When conversations started last year about radically changing the livery for 2020, we all felt a fresh new look would be a really positive move for our partners and fans.

"It's created a real buzz ahead of an exciting new BTCC season! The BMW 3 Series is a stunning car and this new image reflects that perfectly. Looking forwards to the new season, I've no doubt about our potential and I'm feeling positive about the consistency we have with the 3 Series and the people, but we also have to move the game on - we have to make it count."

The BTCC blasts off at Donington Park on 28-29 March, and will also race at Brands Hatch (Indy) on 11-12 AprilOulton Park on 13-14 JuneSnetterton on 25-26 July  with the return visit to Brands Hatch (Grand Prix) for the season finale on 10-11 October. Tickets for all rounds are on sale here now.
