HISTORY:
Having begun in 1958 the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) continues to draw crowds with high octane racing, passionate fans and iconic cars. For 2017 the VW Passat CCs moved to the Kent based Team HARD. This upcoming and promising squad, based near Brands Hatch, recruited another local man for their 2017 challenge, Jake Hill.
For many years Jake has been one of the most exciting tin-top racers around, with many charges through the field, as well as good qualifying performances making him a fan favourite. Some bad luck saw Jake finishing lower then both he and Team HARD would have in the 2017 season.

ABOUT NGTC:

Next Generation Touring Car, also known as NGTC is an FIA and TOCA specification and classification for production based race cars. The goal of the limited choices in engines and parts in the NGTC classification is to allow more manufacturers and privateers to race by reducing the cost of a competitive car and to reduce reliance on the increasingly expensive Super 2000 equipment. The only significant differences between different models is the external body shells and the use of front or rear wheel drive; the suspension, brakes and transmissions are common to all cars, and engines are of uniform performance.
The specification was created for use in the British Touring Car Championship and was phased in over three years from the 2011 British Touring Car Championship season. NGTC engines were first used in the 2010 season by Pinkney Motorsport, Pirtek Racing and Special Tuning UK.
The introduction of these new technical regulations were designed to fulfil the following criteria:
* Dramatically reduce the design, build and running costs of the cars and engines
* Maintain present levels of performance until 2013 to ensure performance parity with current S2000 cars until that point
* Reduce the potential for significant performance disparities between cars
* Future-proofa?T the regulations by being able to easily modify the various performance parameters
* Reduce reliance on WTCC S2000 equipment, due to increasing costs/complexity and concerns as to its future sustainability/direction.

Supplied in a hinged crystal lid display case with grey base.
