British Touring Car Championship

As we launch the 2023 season, Speedworks have partnered with Toyota GAZOO Racing for another outstanding season. For the first time, they are entering with three drivers; Rory Butcher will be joined by Ricky Collard and George Gamble in the Speedworks Motorsport team for BTCC.
 “It’s fair to say we’re all extremely excited ahead of the new season,” said Team Principal Christian Dick. “It’s a significant challenge to expand from two cars to three, but at the same time, having three sets of data to cross-reference should allow us to make progress faster than we’ve ever done before."

Whilst we look forward to another successful season of BTCC, 2022 drivers Rory Butcher and Ricky Collard reflect on last year's season:

Driver: Rory Butcher

“I was absolutely buzzing after qualifying [at Brands Hatch]. It was great to back up our Silverstone form with another front row start, and I felt in a good place – properly gunning for it and on the hunt for some trophies. We’ve actually been mega-consistent this year and have scored points in 29 of the 30 races – that kind of consistency is really hard to come by in this championship."

Driver: Ricky Collard

“Looking back, it’s been the toughest season I’ve ever had, with repeated bad luck and issues beyond our control as a team that have denied us better results. I feel like I’ve driven some really good races and I’ve certainly had fun along the way. I’m extremely grateful for all the help and support Rory and Speedworks have given me, not only on-track but away from the circuit, too. They’ve been absolutely fantastic, and I’m proud to count them all as mates.”

Christian Dick’s 2022 BTCC review

Toyota GAZOO Racing UK team boss Christian Dick reflects on the successful 2022 BTCC season: “What a great way to end the season: five podium finishes from the last six races. It’s a tremendous achievement and shows just what a sweet spot we’ve got the Corolla into. To be equally competitive at two such different types of circuit as Silverstone and Brands GP is testament to how well the Corolla is working across the board."
