A motorsport icon returns to the British Touring Car Championship. Follow Team BMW as they get familiar with the new BMW 3 Series and begin the arduous process of transforming the road car into a motorsport title contender.

Andrew Jordan meets the new BMW 3 Series for the first time, at the MIRA wind tunnel. Team BMW take the new BMW 3 Series into testing to lock down their wing position, while the rest of the cars are having the finishing touches made to the all-important roll cages.

As the beginning of the BTCC Season looms, it’s the final push to get the new BMW 3 Series ready to race. The team work against the odds to get the three cars into shape ahead of their final livery reveal, and their big race debut.

West Surrey Racing

West Surrey Racing was created by New Zealander Dick Bennetts in 1981 to race in the British Formula 3 Championship and achieved success almost immediately as Jonathan Palmer won its debut race on March 1 at Silverstone and went on to take that season’s title.
Four more crowns were achieved in British F3 by 1991 with Ayrton Senna, Mauricio Gugelmin, Mika Hakkinen and Rubens Barrichello. Senna and Gugelmin also won the category’s most prestigious race, the Macau Grand Prix, with WSR.
WSR bowed out of F3 at the end of 1995 as the most successful team in the history of the series, both in terms of race victories and titles; its prowess helping it to become Ford’s works team in the 1996 British Touring Car Championship.
A breakthrough BTCC win was achieved with Will Hoy in 1998 while F1 legend Nigel Mansell memorably led ‘the greatest touring car race of all time’ at Donington Park later that year in another of WSR’s Mondeos.
For 1999 WSR began a two-year association with Honda, winning first time out with James Thompson and closing with a double-victory for Tom Kristensen at Silverstone in what was the final BTCC event for Super Touring machinery…

The BMW 330i M Sport

Designed, built and raced by WSR, the BMW 330i M Sport enjoyed an extraordinary first season of competition as it powered Colin Turkington to a record-equalling fourth BTCC Drivers’ crown and helped BMW claim a fourth consecutive Manufacturers’ title. Based on the award-winning BMW 3 Series production vehicle, and powered by the two-litre, four-cylinder BMW B48 engine, the 330i M Sport only turned its first wheel 10 days before the start of the 2019 BTCC season, but blew the competition away from the outset with 11 wins – WSR’s highest single-season victory total in any series.

Colin Turkington

Colin is WSR’s longest-serving driver; making his BTCC debut with the team in 2002 and winning every one of his four overall titles – plus four Independents’ crowns – with their BMWs. Since his return to the Sunbury-on-Thames team in 2017, he has never finished lower than second in the Drivers’ Championship and last year became only the second man to win the series four times. He returns for a crack at a fifth crown as he seeks to re-write the history books.

Tom Oliphant

Leamington Spa-based Tom Oliphant returns for a second season with Team BMW, having finished second in the Jack Sears Trophy standings in his maiden year with the WSR-run squad in 2019. The former Ginetta GT4 Supercup Champion and British GT race winner made his BTCC debut in 2018, but found a new gear last year as he scored his first two podium finishes in the series and set three fastest laps during the second half of the season – more than any other driver – in his BMW 330i M Sport.
