And Then... - BTCC after 1993
BTCC cntinued to grow in 1994, with Alfa Romeo and Volvo taking part,
and the championship remained stable for a few years, until the
inevitable happened: costs grew, importers quit until in 2000 there
were only three manufacturers left and the field had to be padded with
Super Production cars. The Brits decided to go their own way and made
rules different from the FIA Super 2000, though these cars were allowed
a while later.
in 2011 the "Next Generation Touring Car" was brought out, together
with a spec engine, the UK drifted even more away from the FOA rules;
underlined when a BTCC team (Aon Ford) tried the WTCC in 2012 - it was
a huge disappointment.
