BTCC organisers open tender for engine supply
TOCA, the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) organisers, has opened the tender process for the supply of the series’ TOCA engine from 2022.
Suppliers are invited to apply between now and the 20 January to express an interest.
The current engine supply agreement expires at the conclusion of the 2021 campaign, with the next five-year term due to run from 2022 until the end of 2026.
The new contract is set to be awarded in June 2020, to ensure that a cost-effective engine with proven reliability is ready in time for the start of the 2022 season and available for use by any BTCC team.
The engine must be designed to comply with 2020 technical regulations, which specify a turbocharged 2.0-litre, four-cylinder in-line unit that fits all current cars, while simultaneously considering the forthcoming integration of hybrid systems in the BTCC.
Any interested parties who would like to submit a tender should contact Peter Riches, BTCC Technical Director.
