Delivering the ultimate in race action across 30 rounds each season, the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship is renowned worldwide as one of the globe’s premier motor racing categories – and one with a glorious history.
Established in 1958, the BTCC has evolved and developed over the last 60-plus years to remain as relevant as ever. In fact, the championship has never been stronger with capacity grids of Hondas, Fords, Vauxhalls, BMWs and more battling it out bumper-to-bumper and door-to-door, lap after lap.
Racing in front of tens of thousands of spectators each weekend, and with millions more watching the action through the wall-to-wall live television coverage on ITV4, the BTCC truly is one of the most popular and action-packed forms of motorsport on the planet.
josh cook #66
One of the most spectacular and committed drivers in the BTCC, 29-year-old Josh is a major front-running force and will start the 2021 season as a competitor squarely in the mix to challenge for overall and Independents title honours.
Beginning his third season with the team, Josh – from Bristol – has chalked-up six overall BTCC race wins in BTC colours since 2019 and would undoubtedly have taken many more last year had it not been for some serious early-season misfortune.
Debuting in touring cars in 2015, after just missing out on the Renault UK Clio Cup title the previous year in a final weekend thriller, he won the Jack Sears Trophy in his maiden BTCC campaign as the top rookie. Also securing a first outright podium, he added more podium trophies in 2016 and in 2018 Josh became an outright BTCC race winner for the first time
with two victories.
Jade Edwards #99
Making history with BTC Racing as the first female driver to contest a full season in the Kwik-Fit British Touring Car Championship since 2007, Jade is ready to make the absolute most of her dream opportunity at the pinnacle of UK motor racing.
Debuting in the BTCC last year during a one-off outing in a Vauxhall Astra, the Northampton based 29-year-old will now embark on a complete 30-race season after securing the opportunity to race one of BTC’s Honda Civic Type-R FK8 cars.
After beginning her car racing career back in 2006 in Ginetta Junior, Jade went on to race in the British GT Championship and the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge before becoming a front-runner
in the one-make Renault UK Clio Cup. In 2019, Jade ended the final Clio season seventh in the standings with a best result of fourth position. Her father, Jim Edwards Jnr, is a past class winner
in the BTCC.
