    Question Guest drivers in BTCC

    Good morning Alan,

    Do TOCA ever make an active approach to invite guest drivers to the BTCC? I imagine there would be a lot of appeal and publicity in having a recent F1 driver, such as Rosberg or Button, participate in the series, similar to Mansell in 1998.

    Would this be something you would like to see happen in future and would it be down to you or the teams?

    Many thanks for your time and looking forward to another great season in 2017!
    It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    We are always open to having a major-name guest drivers in the BTCC from time to time. In fact we incorporated a specific regulation to allow for such a thing to happen in order to circumvent any restrictive issues, such as the team not requiring a TBL for that guest entry etc.

    Inevitably however it is up to a team put together such a programme, as it requires funding and a spare car/extra infrastructure etc. But certainly TOCA have made it simple for them to do so, if the right opportunity arose.
