BTC Racing is a British auto racing team based in Shocklach, Cheshire and run by Bert Taylor. The team is best known for having competed in the British Touring Car Championship.

British Touring Car Championship[edit]

Lexus IS (2006–2007)[edit]

They ran 2 Lexus IS 200 cars for Chris Stockton and Darren Dowling in the latter two rounds of the 2006 British Touring Car Championship season in preparation for a fuller campaign the following season.

They retained Stockton for 2007 but signed Nick Leason as their second driver, although he ultimately only contested the first 3 rounds.

Lexus IS and SEAT Toledo (2008)[edit]

For 2008, Stockton was joined initially by truck racing champion Stuart Oliver. They replaced the Lexus cars with ex-Motorbase SEATs after two rounds, but had little success. The team missed round 6 at Snetterton after reported financial problems. Gareth Howell made two appearances in place of Oliver. The team were looking to enter the 2009 British Touring Car Championship season with two SEAT Leóns, but decided against this.[1]

Chevrolet Cruze (2014 -)[edit]

The team will return in 2014 with Chris Stockton driving an NGTC Chevrolet Cruze which was originally built for Silverline Chevrolet however the car was never completed as RML decided not to race in 2012. BTC Racing will return in 2014 having secured a entry in BTCC with their NGTC Cruze.

The team originally wanted to enter during 2013, but made the decision to concentrate on building their NGTC Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback.
