2013 BTCC entry list

A record 32 drivers, 18 teams and 13 different models from 11 manufacturers are set to compete in this year’s British Touring Car Championship.

What’s more, with all but seven entries running to full Next Generation Touring Car specification, the racing promises to be extremely close.

To further mix things up, a new tyre rule this year should add an extra element of strategy. At every round (apart from Thruxton) all NGTC contestants will each receive a single set of ‘soft compound’ Dunlop tyres, which they then have to use during one of the event’s three races.

The 2013 BTCC begins at Brands Hatch on Easter Sunday. As in recent seasons, ITV4 is going to be screening live race coverage.
