It is proud of its associations with its customers – some blue-chip and leading organisations amongst them – and strives to add real value – helping to reduce costs associated with vehicle collisions not to mention saving lives, improving road safety and driver behaviour and providing eco-driving benefits too.

Why did you choose to race with Britcar? As I am looking to become established as race team the Britcar Championship was seen as ideal, able to run a car which I already owned in a professionally run championship, full grids and offering good hospitality for guests and teams.
