BTCC WINNERS’ STORY: BMW
The 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship saw BMW take its fourth consecutive win in the Manufacturers’ title fight.
This commemorates the marque’s sixth win in its BTCC career, giving BMW the second most official Constructor wins in the series’ history.
In the following events, the Bavarian marque dipped in the standings before regaining the advantage after event four of the season, at Croft, which seemed to put the fire back behind BMW as it dominated the title race for the remainder of the season.
The Brands Hatch finale event saw BMW take the 2019 title, with main rival Honda 41 points in arrears, as well as taking the coveted Drivers’ Championship through Colin Turkington.
In Manufacturers’ titles, BMW is only bettered by Vauxhall, who holds a record nine victories, having overtaken Honda who remains on five. In addition to this, Vauxhall also holds the record for most consecutive titles, five (2001-2005), which BMW has the chance to equal in 2020.
