Memories (since Super Touring era - 1991)/
2012: The balance of power shifts to rear wheel drive, as eBay Motors BMW take a 1-2 in the first two races of the day. Rob Collard took victory in both, with Tom Onslow-Cole taking a brace of second positions behind him. Dave Newsham follows up his fantastic first career win at Snetterton by taking maximum points away from race 3.
2011: Tom Chilton, Gordon Shedden and Tom Boardman share the wins. Chilton's is the first for the 'Global' Ford Focus and Boardman's – achieved after a controversial collision with Jason Plato – his maiden career win. Shedden's, on home ground, moves him into the championship lead. A pair of 3rd places for Frank Wrathall mark the first outright podium results for an NGTC car.
2010: Gordon Shedden sends his home crowd wild with delight with victory in race 1.
2009: Jason Plato comes from almost last to 2nd in race 3 behind RML/Chevrolet team-mate Mat Jackson who wins to make it 3 podiums in a day on a circuit he previously professed to "hating".
2008: It's a SEAT clean sweep as Jason Plato wins twice and team-mate Darren Turner once in their Leon TDIs.
2007: Darren Turner (SEAT) wins races 1 & 2 and Gordon Shedden (Honda) race 3 in front of his home crowd.
2006: Fabrizio Giovanardi holds off a queue of cars in race 2 to achieve Vauxhall's long-awaited 100th BTCC race win. His defence on the final lap triggers a multiple pile-up behind.
2005: Robert Collard (MG) takes his first win in the BTCC in race 3 in pouring rain. James Pickford barrel rolls his SEAT in qualifying at the chicane.
2004: Anthony Reid (MG) takes two wins on home ground to close on points leaders, Vauxhall team-mates James Thompson and Yvan Muller who both spin in the races. The Vauxhall team also has to work into the night to repair Thompson’s battered Astra Coupe after a heavy qualifying shunt with Matt Neal’s Honda.
2002: Andy Priaulx survives a late half-spin for his and the Honda Civic’s first BTCC race win in atrociously wet conditions.
2001: Two wins for Jason Plato (Vauxhall) take him past team-mate Yvan Muller into the championship lead.
1998: Derek Warwick (Vauxhall) takes his only BTCC race win thanks to a correct tyre gamble in a wet-dry race.
1997: Frank Biela and John Bintcliffe dominate in their four-wheel-drive Audis, each achieving a win, a second and a pole position.
1995: James Thompson (Vauxhall) suffers an horrific 100mph testing shunt at Duffus Dip. His injuries sideline him for the rest of the season.
1994: Series leader Gabriele Tarquini famously barrel rolls at McIntyres after being tagged by Tim Harvey (Renault).
1993: Julian Bailey’s (Toyota) only BTCC race win. John Cleland's (Vauxhall) only win in front of his home crowd.
1992: Knockhill’s first BTCC meeting. Colin McRae makes a one-off BTCC outing in a Prodrive BMW and is involved in some argy-bargy with Matt Neal’s BMW. The winners are Jeff Allam (Vauxhall) and Tim Harvey (BMW).
