Steve Dudman, BTC Racing Team Principal
BTC Racing evolves ahead of 2021 British Touring Car Championship
Team owner Steve Dudman becomes sole Team Principal
Race-winning squad preparing at full pace for major push next season
Multiple race-winning Kwik-Fit British Touring Car Championship team BTC Racing has this morning, Thursday, 10th December, announced a change in its organisational structure ahead of 2021 with Steve Dudman taking full control of the squad and also becoming the sole Team Principal. With preparations well underway for the Brackley outfit’s third season as BTC Racing in the UK’s premier motor racing category, the evolution of the team structure will also result in other managerial changes which will be confirmed in due course. Off the back of a successful season this year in the BTCC, where Josh Cook claimed three outright race victories, Tom Chilton was a multiple podium finisher and Michael Crees secured the Jack Sears Trophy title with 12 class wins, BTC Racing is eyeing an even bigger challenge in 2021. Once again set to field three of the latest generation Honda Civic Type-R FK8 cars, albeit with the driver line-up still under wraps, the front-running team has sights set on battling hard for not only the Independents Driver and Independents Team titles, but also the outright BTCC crown.
Steve Dudman – BTC Racing Owner and Team Principal:
“There are some exciting changes underway at BTC Racing ahead of the 2021 season, starting with an investment in a new managerial structure of team management and technical engineering design, as we look forward to, what we fully intend to be, our most successful and competitive season yet in the BTCC.
“Adopting the sole Team Principal role, I will be much more ‘hands on’ with the day-to-day operations. These are very exciting times for all at BTC Racing, our ambition has never been greater and we are determined to challenge for regular podiums, race wins and championship titles.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bert Taylor for his work with the team over the last two seasons, and I wish him well in his future endeavours.
“Now, the hard work resumes to ensure we start the 2021 season as competitively as we possibly can.”
The opening three races of next year’s BTCC season will take place on Sunday, 4th April, at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Kent.
