Biography

BTC Racing joined the fold in 2017 as BTC Norlin Racing with a 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 to 2008 and again in 2014.

The driving strength blended the experience of Dave Newsham with the potential of Chris Smiley. The fledgling outfit enjoyed a strong opening campaign, tallying consistent points finishes throughout the second half of the year. Highlights included a fourth place at Donington Park and a podium at Silverstone for Newsham.

Smiley stayed on-board for 2018, with the team switching to a potent pair of Honda Civic Type Rs. The Northern Irishman was joined by James Nash, who was replaced by Daniel Lloyd midway through the season. The Yorkshireman achieved BTC’s first series victory on home soil at Croft, while Smiley sealed a maiden success of his own at Rockingham on the championship’s final visit to the circuit.

Josh Cook joined the line-up for 2019 as Smiley continued with the outfit for a third straight year, the pair piloting new, current FK8-generation Honda Civic Type Rs. The combination propelled Cook to three victories and seven podiums to claim fourth position in the overall Drivers’ classification, with three further rostrums for Smiley securing BTC the same spot in the Teams’ standings.

2020 sees the Brackley-based outfit expand to three cars, as Tom Chilton joins Cook and Michael Crees enters the fold under ‘The Clever Baggers with BTC Racing’ banner.
