TerraClean is once again to sponsor former British Touring Car Champion (BTCC) Colin Turkington, renewing their partnership ahead of the 2022 season.
TerraClean made its first step into the BTCC at the beginning of 2016 with Turkington, and after six successful seasons and positive feedback from the network, the business has confirmed the continuation of the relationship into 2022, with TerraClean’s branding prominently appearing on the former champion’s BMW 330e M Sport.
The 2022 BTCC season features an electrified field with new hybrid technology forming part of the racing powertrain.
An electric motor and battery pack combination will provide an extra 40 horsepower available to drivers at the touch of a button to pull off overtaking manoeuvres.
Four-time British touring car champion, and TerraClean ambassador Colin Turkington said: “Our sights are firmly set on winning the championship again.
“We’re into a new era of the BTCC with a big regulation change featuring extra hybrid power, so there’ll be lots of unknows to all drivers which is really exciting.
“The whole team has been working hard over the off-season to improve the racing package we had last year and has developed a few significant upgrades.
“We always try to be better than the season before, so we’ll be aiming to be title contenders.”
Phillip Dowd, sales director at Randstad, said: “Colin is a fantastic ambassador for TerraClean, and is well-known to the network through his attendance at our own events such as our karting days, and him hosting us at race weekends.
“Having a driver of Colin’s calibre as a brand ambassador for TerraClean provides us with a fantastic opportunity to increase brand awareness further and we’re delighted to continue our partnership into the 2022 season.”
Nine further race weekends comprising qualifying and three races follow at Brands Hatch, Thruxton, Oulton Park, Croft, Knockhill, Snetterton, before a return trip to Thruxton, then Silverstone, with the championship decider back at Brands Hatch on its Grand Prix circuit layout.
Prior to the new season starting Turkington has been preparing to return to the race seat of his TerraClean-adorned BMW 330e M Sport, to mount a serious challenge to be the first ever five-time BTCC champion.
Turkington added: “Pre-season I’ve been working on the simulator at home to keep my racing brain engaged.
“I’ve put in lots of effort to keep myself in shape and be the best version of myself; the work never really stops.
“I’m regularly at the race track, coaching drivers or driving karts myself to keep me mentally engaged.
“Once one season ends, you’re already preparing for the next one.”
Colin Turkington won the British Touring Car Championship in 2009, and again in 2014, 2018 and most recently in 2019, his fourth title, and has taken 60 race victories over an illustrious career to date, featuring drives for West Surrey Racing BMW, Vauxhall and Team BMR’s semi-works Subaru outfit.
