Chilton joins BTC Racing for 2020 BTCC title challenge

Friday, January 10 2020

Tom Chilton will join BTC Racing for the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, joining Josh Cook as the team's second announced driver as part of a three-car line-up this year.

The 2010 Independents Champion, who was the youngest driver ever to have entered the championship when he first appeared in 2002, has moved to BTC to pilot a Honda Civic Type R (FK8) following two years with Motorbase Performance. 

Chilton will make his competitive BTC Racing debut at Donington Park on 28-29 March when the championship kicks off in the East Midlands for the first time since 2005.

Chilton said: "I'm incredibly excited about joining BTC Racing. The team did a sterling job last year. To have ended the season fourth overall and as Independent runners-up in their first season running the FK8 chassis was an outstanding achievement.
"I can't wait to get testing underway. I have a great history with Honda, and I'm really looking forward to getting back into one again, and behind the wheel of the FK8.
"Josh [Cook] is a great driver, and I like having good team-mates to push me. I'd like to think that with my years of experience I can bring something new to the team and help to push them on at the sharp end of the grid.
"BTC Racing is a relatively young team, but their attitude and performance caught my eye last year. I like their approach and professionalism. I'm optimistic about the future that we can build together, not just for this season, but hopefully for many years moving forward."
