- Colin Turkington and West Surrey Racing will remain together for the 2023 British Touring Car Championship.
- The four-time BTCC Champion will once again pilot the BMW 330e M Sport as the Buckinghamshire based driver commences his 19th season in the series.
- Significant rule changes look set to mix up the format of the racing with Hybrid deployment, tyre choices and qualifying all set for adjustments.
- The 2023 BTCC season kicks off at Donington Park on 22nd and 23rd April.
“I’m extremely pleased to be a part of the West Surrey Racing team for the 2023 season and to race the BMW 330e M Sport for another season. This will be my 19th BTCC campaign and I couldn’t ask for a better team to be behind me.
WSR and I have a great relationship, which has given me a consistent platform to perform from the past 15 seasons. The dynamic between all team members and drivers is what has delivered a recipe of success over the years and I’m excited to start another season with a super squad of talented people.
The new BTCC season should shape up nicely with the significant rule changes around the option tyres, shoot-out qualifying and hybrid deployment use. We won’t know how that will play out until we’re in the thick of it, but I’m hopeful it’ll be a positive step.
This series never stays still, and that forever-moving target is what brings me back year-on-year.
The competition continues to strengthen, and I’ve no doubt 2023 will be no exception. The BTCC fans have a lot to look forward to and it”ll be no time before we kick things off at Donington Park in April.”
