The British Touring Car Championship, after a meeting with the organizer TOCA and the BTCC teams at the end of the season, made some minor rule changes for the races next year.
"It is clear that the BTCC regulations work extremely well," explains Alan Gow, Boss of TOCA. “However, we are always looking for further opportunities for improvement. Although they are minor changes, they will certainly add some interesting new elements to the championship next season. ”
After a successful introduction, the drivers will use all three Goodyear tire compounds on race day in Snetterton in 2020. This will be repeated on the Croft race track, which was renewed earlier this year.
The championship has also changed the way tires are nominated. The teams can now freely choose in which race of the race day the option set is to be used, which makes it possible to change the strategy.
The maximum success ballast is increased to 60 kg and then reduced to tenth place in steps of 6 kg.
The BTCC also plans to test a new qualification format in Snetteron. Instead of the usual 30-minute session, drivers now have a 25-minute time window in which to record their lap times. The ten fastest participants then continue with a ten-minute pole position session to determine the starting positions.
M-Sport has been Wins a five-year contract to supply the next British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) engine Starting in 2022.
BTCC organizer TOCA awarded the UK company the contract based on a 10-page presentation and follow up questions to M Sport Boss Malcolm Wilson and head of engine development Nigel Arnfield.
Since 2011, TOCA has provided an engine for teams that do not wish to carry out their own development program. In 2020, 55% of the grid is using the TOCA engines.
M-Sport, which is based in northwest England, will oversee the design, development and supply of the TOCA engine. they will work with Cosworth, which is producing the BTCC Hybrid System also scheduled to be introduced in 2022.
Engines will be available for purchase or fully maintained lease, with M-Sport providing engineer and technical support at race meetings and test days.
Alan Gow, BTCC, Boss said, “The opportunity to supply the TOCA engine from 2022 understandably attracted great interest from an extremely high caliber of bidders, so it is testament to M-Sport’s professionalism and expertise that it was able to come out on top of such a competitive and comprehensive process.”
