When you think of the BTCC series, the cars that comes up are typically BMW 320is, Vauxhall Vectra Turbo, SEAT Leon, Honda Civic and Integra R, Ford Focus LPG and a Chevy Cruze.
But after over 10 years of absence, a Volkswagen racecar will be entering the BTCC series once again.
It was brought over from the Baltic Touring Car Championship. Here’s how the car looked like when they first picked it up.
Notice the difference in the front bumper per the previous series it was involved in.
Shaun Hollamby, team owner and driver, shook down the MKV Golf for its first outing yesterday. And after their session was over, Shaun happily reported that the car felt solid and exceptionally well balanced on all four corners.
Round 1 of BTCC starts on April 4th in Thruxton. For more info in the series, goto BTCC.net
