List of BTCC champions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The title of BTCC champion is awarded to the driver who scores the most points overall in a British Touring Car Championship season. From 1992–present a separate championship was awarded to the winning 'independent' (not officially manufacturer backed) driver, and from 2000-2003 the Production class had its own championship for the best 'class B' driver.
