BTC Norlin Racing joined the fold in 2017 with its brace of Chevrolet Cruzes, but whilst the entry was new, the backbone of the team wasn’t, having previously competed in the BTCC from 2006-2008 and again in 2014 as BTC Racing.

The driving strength blended the experience of Dave Newsham with the potential of Chris Smiley. The fledgling outfit, Newsham and Smiley enjoyed a strong opening campaign, with consistent points finishes throughout the second half of the year. Highlights were fourth spot at Donington Park and a podium at Silverstone for Dave Newsham. Smiley stays for 2018, with the team switching to a potent pair of Honda Civic Type Rs and he will be joined by James Nash.
