Silverstone BTCC 1993



Rouse turned up with a brand new Mondeo - which was far from ready. He would return much later in the season - but with style.
Another new car was the Renault 19; no beauty and not competitive for a while.
This is the well-known Cavalier of Allam, I guess a new car too.
BMW had thrown the towel in the DTM and spreaded teams and cars all over Europe - Schnitzer on duty in the UK.
Win Percy came back for the Janspeed team.
Gravett continued with the Peugeot, but despite a fine ending in 1992 it was déja-vu all over again.
The round snout of the Mazda Xedos, the only 6-cylinder car so far.
Toyota had switched to Tom's UK with the new Carina and retained Hoy.
Soper was the number 1 for Schnitzer, but it did not work out that way.
A "B" spec Carina E was raced by Kaye.
It looks like Pinkney had one of the 1992 Prodrive cars.
Neal had a Vic Lee car, just like last year. This one too wouldn't last all season.
Verdon-Roe drove the second Park Lane Toyota...
... while Julian Bailey was drafted in for the Tom's team as number 2.
Winkelhock surprised many, the former F1 driver learning the UK circuits quickly.
It's O'dor again in 1993...
Eugene O'Brien drove the second works Peugeot.
Watts in the Xedos.

Leslie in the ever improving Mallock-Vauxhall Cavalier.
