Cook sticks with BTC for 2020 Kwik Fit BTCC title charge

Wednesday, January 08 2020

BTC Racing and Josh Cook will resume their title-contending partnership in the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship following a hugely successful maiden season together last year. 

Five-time race-winner Cook is the first driver to be confirmed in BTC's 2020 line-up and will return to the cockpit of the Honda Civic Type R (FK8) which carried him to fourth in last year's championship table.

Cook won three times in 2019, including the opening race of the year at Brands Hatch and he'll be hoping for more of the same when this year's campaign kicks off at Donington Park on 28-29 March. 

Cook said: "Continuity is so important in this championship. I've never had the chance to have two seasons in the same team and car, and it's such an important piece of the puzzle.

"We didn't really manage to get any testing in last year. We just rocked up and won the opening round. That was great but each weekend we just had to work it out on track rather than having any knowledge. So the fact that we get to go into this year with all of that data and some winter testing along with our developments should hopefully take us a step forward.

"We went full guns for the overall title last year; we didn't have an eye on the Independents until the main one was out of reach. We're there to try for the overall title. That's been my aim since I came into the BTCC in 2015, and that will always be my aim. We took more wins than the factory team with no testing. The team were mega and it was a great achievement. We're arriving with more knowledge this season, and there's no reason why we can't take that extra step."
