Colin Turkington remains with WSR for 2023 BTCC

Colin Turkington will continue to drive for West Surrey Racing in the 2023 British Touring Car Championship, extending the partnership for a 16th season.

Turkington, 40, will be contesting his 19th season in the BTCC, and he will do so once again at the wheel of a BMW 330e M Sport.

The four-time champion, who last lifted the crown in 2019, will be seeking a record-breaking fifth outright title.

“I’m extremely pleased to be a part of the West Surrey Racing team for the 2023 season and to race the BMW 330e M Sport for another season,” said Buckinghamshire-based Turkington.

“This will be my 19th BTCC campaign, and I couldn’t ask for a better team to be behind me. WSR and I have a great relationship, which has given me a consistent platform to perform from over the years.

“The dynamic between all team members and drivers is what’s delivered a recipe of success over the years and I’m excited to start another season with a super squad of talented people.

“The new BTCC season should shape up nicely with the significant rule changes around the option tyres, shoot-out qualifying and hybrid deployment use.

“We won’t know how that will play out until we’re in the thick of it, but I’m hopeful it’ll be a positive step.

“This series never stays still, and that forever-moving target is what brings me back year-on-year.

“The competition continues to strengthen, and I’ve no doubt 2023 will be no exception.

“The BTCC fans have a lot to look forward to and it’ll be no time before we kick things off at Donington Park in April.”

The Northern Irishman completes WSR’s driver line-up for 2023, with Stephen Jelley and Jake Hill already having been confirmed as remaining with WSR, whilst Adam Morgan will also join the team for the coming campaign.

The opening round of the 2023 season takes place at Donington Park on 22 – 23 April.
