And Then... - BTCC after 1993

The 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.
When 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.
