Martin Johnson (born 27 March 1963 in Leatherhead) is a British auto racing driver. He is best known for competing in the British Touring Car Championship with his own team, Boulevard Team Racing.

Career[edit]

After competing in the Renault Clio Cup between 2000 and 2006, he stepped up to the British Touring Car Championship in 2009. He competed a Vauxhall Astra Coupe prepared by his Boulevard Team Racing outfit, which was the same car that Erkut Kızılırmak campaigned in Turkey in 2008. He finished 22nd on points overall, with two championship points scored with tenth placed finishes at Snetterton and Rockingham. Johnson returned for a second season in the BTCC for 2010.[1]

Since 2011, Johnson has been racing the Astra in the United Arab Emirates.

Boulevard Team Racing[edit]

Boulevard Team Racing is a family-run team, managed by Johnson's father Cliff until his death in June 2010. It has established itself as a front-running team in the Renault Clio Cup over the last decade and won the drivers' and teams' title in 2004 with Paul Rivett alongside Johnson.[2][3]

Personal life[edit]

Johnson lives in Alford, Lincolnshire.
