TOCA invites tenders for BTCC hybrid introduction
TOCA is now inviting expressions of interest from companies to supply the hybrid system for the British Touring Car Championship – originally planned for a 2022 introduction, but with the previously stated goal of being brought forward to 2021 if key parameters are met.
Over the last 9 months, TOCA has heavily engaged with industry experts to clearly define the technical, performance, system specification, servicing and commercial requirements. This comprehensive document is now available to those parties interested in tendering.
The winning contractor will be required to produce a light, cost effective, low-voltage hybrid system with proven durability. This hybrid system will be incorporated into the current specification BTCC cars – additional to their 2-litre turbocharged engines.
The BTCC is believed to be the first major touring car championship in the world to have committed to a firm pathway for the integration of hybrid power.
It is envisaged that the contract will be awarded in the next three months.
Expressions of interest should be directed to;
