Colin Turkington wins inaugural Goodyear Wingfoot Award

Colin Turkington won the inaugural Goodyear Wingfoot Award at the BTCC season finale at Brands Hatch 2020, rewarding his impressive and consistent qualifying performance. 

Last season’s action had shown battles to be closer than ever. At Brands Hatch, Turkington and teammate Tom Oliphant crossed the line with the exact same lap time, down to the thousandth-of-a-second. In a field this competitive, Turkington’s consistency deserved to be rewarded. 

Speaking to ITV after receiving the Goodyear Wingfoot Award trophy, Turkington said: “That’s been a great reward for our qualifying performances all year. It has been probably one of our biggest strengths, getting the car up onto the first couple of rows consistently, nearly every weekend. Of course that dictates such a big part of Sunday, so I think it’s a just reward.”





Race Weekend Format

Each round of BTCC follows a similar structure: the race takes place over the weekend with split of rounds between two days. On Saturday, practice and qualifying rounds take place, whereas on Sunday, there are three races of equal distance.

*Daily format is based on one of the past events. There may be slight variations to schedule and it may differentiate every round.

Race Grids

Race 1

The grid for race one is decided during Saturday’s qualifying session, with the exception of Snetterton.
