Just been announced the Kwik Fit are going to be the BTCC title sponsor from 2019. Not a fan of Kwik Fit myself but good to see a massive UK company ploughing some money into an excellent UK race series smile

Maybe we'll see a return to mandatory pit-stops, where tyres have to be changed, no matter how much tread is left. Oh, and your exhaust too, mate.

Great to see such a big household name getting into the BTCC in a big way.

Agreed, manufacturer & driver I can fully support smile Think the work Tom has done has deserved something more concrete imo.

Let's just hope to god he isn't allowed to design the livery for this car. Last year's looked bloody awful.

All the sponsors were on it and it did the job. Never understand the obsession many here have with liveries.

Great to see that Toyota are now backing speed works, I am however now dreaming of a Toyota yellow/orange/red livery. Not a fan of the Gazoo ones.

It was also not the worst on the grid by a long way. It’s weird that people didn’t like it, it was colourful and bold, just like the eBay Motors BMW one from a few years back, which everyone liked.

Great news to have another works team. I really hope they can get straight in and up the front, for Tom's sake. Would be a shame to see him struggle with developing a new car.

I suppose Toyota's marketing team has done it's job, since this is how I've learned that they've finally given up on re-branding Corollas.

Shame to see the Alfa won't be on the grid next year, hopefully they can come back in 2020.
