Colin Turkington & Dick Bennetts

Becoming the BTCC Champion for a third time was an amazing feeling, especially in the 60th year of the series. I was definitely broken by the end but satisfied I had given it everything .

I’m back with Team BMW for 2019 in the new 330i M Sport BTCC race car.

The goal over the winter was to present an improved version of myself for 2019 and see where that takes us! I’ve been doing everything in my power to make this happen.

We’ll work smart, race hard and keep the focus.

Time to get the show on the road!

Tom Oliphant

Leamington Spa-based Tom Oliphant joins BMW having competed on the BTCC support package for the last five seasons. He won the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup in a record-breaking 2015 season before moving to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, in which he scored six podium results and finished in the top four in the title race in both 2016 and 2017.

For 2019, Oliphant made the jump to manufacturer-backed Team BMW, driving its new 330i M Sport.

BTCC Champion Colin Turkington

“Becoming the BTCC Champion for a third time is an amazing feeling, especially in the 60th year of the series. Team BMW gave me a fast, consistent and reliable car and together we got the job done. I had to work harder for this title than any other, but all the dedication and sacrifice is so worth it when you achieve the ultimate goal. It takes a passionate and supportive network of people and partners to make this dream come true and I’d like to personally thank everyone involved in my success.”
