Goodyear Becomes Sole Supplier to the British National Touring Car Championship 2020
An iconic name in the tyre industry, Goodyear is making a return to UK motorsport by becoming the sole tyre supplier to the British National Touring Car Championship 2020. The BTCC is a bastion of British motorsport, enthralling racing fans since 1958 with fast-paced action and displays of driving excellence.
Seeing normal road cars that have been tweaked, tuned and turbo-charged compete against each other is part of the sport’s appeal, and ITV’s contract extension with the BTCC until 2022 is proof of the attraction of the sport. Goodyear tyres will be pushed to their limits by Jaguar, Ford, Audi, BMW, Vauxhall and many more world-famous manufacturers as their drivers compete for the title.
Goodyear itself has a long, proud association with motorsport. Their tyres have been used for 14 wins of the famous Le Mans 24-hour endurance race and 368 Formula One wins – a record that remains unbeaten to this day. The launch of their Eagle F1 SuperSport range was a clear signal that they are ready to once again play a key role in the motor racing industry, and the announcement of the BTCC sponsorship cements that role.
