• Goodyear is the Official Tyre Supplier to the British Touring Car Championship
Colin Turkington has secured the top position for a second consecutive year in Goodyear’s Wingfoot Award, once again proving the BMW driver’s consistency and performance in qualifying across the British Touring Car Championship season. Finishing 8th in the final qualifying session of the year was enough to secure the 4-time BTCC champion his second Wingfoot Award trophy in as many years.
Maintaining a solid performance throughout the year, Turkington qualified within the top 10 in 9 qualifying sessions, collecting crucial points to extend his lead in the award standings. Taking only one pole position in the 2021 season, the victory shows proof that consistency and reliability across race weekends is key to success.

Andy Marfleet, Marketing Director - Goodyear UK commented “It was a close competition in the Goodyear Wingfoot Award standings this year, with only 11 points between the top two drivers going into the final qualifying session. Colin has proven that consistency is key when it comes to qualifying, putting himself in prime position for the Wingfoot Award this year”
