BTCC - Team Bristol Street Motors reveals special anniversary livery for 2024 BTCC campaign

TEAM Bristol Street Motors have revealed their eye-catching livery for the 2024 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season at their new base in Droitwich

The livery will adorn the cars of drivers Tom Ingram and Tom Chilton with the duo to again join forces with Bristol Street Motors and EXCELR8 Motorsport.

And the launch marked the first major event for the motorsport team since relocating to a new base in Droitwich earlier this year with the season to start at Donington Park in late April.

Robert Forrester, chief executive of Bristol Street Motors and Macklin Motors, said: “This is a big year for Bristol Street Motors as we celebrate our 100th anniversary, and we’re delighted to be able to use our involvement in the BTCC as one of our points for celebration.

“The design team has once again done a fantastic job with the livery for Team Bristol Street Motors, and the retro theme on the Hyundai is something that I look forward to seeing fighting at the sharp end of the grid during the season ahead. Best of luck, Team Bristol Street Motors.”

Justina Williams, team owner of Team Bristol Street Motors, said: “Yet again the design team has done a fantastic job in bringing the Bristol Street Motors livery to life, and we are delighted with the end result.




“The retro element to tie in with the anniversary celebrations works really well on the Hyundai, and the cars will stand out when we hit the track at Donington Park for the opening round.

“Going into the new season with an unchanged line-up and a proven package, we are confident that a strong year lies ahead and can’t wait to get things underway.”


A further nine events will then take place across the UK before the season draws to a close at Brands Hatch in October.

The team created a special livery to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the motor retailer brand which opened its first dealership on Bristol Street in Birmingham back in 1924.

The original dealership in Birmingham remains to this day and has its own links to the BTCC, having served as the pitlane during the Birmingham Superprix that ran from 1986 through to 1990.

And the new livery not only showcases Bristol Street Motors’ traditional brand colours but also incorporates a special ‘100 Years of Bristol Street Motors’ message, with the BTCC programme set to be play a key part in the celebrations.

The first of a number of immersive events planned for the season ahead, the launch allowed fans to not only get up close to the new-look Hyundai racing cars, but also meet both Ingram and Chilton, as well as returning team-mate Ronan Pearson, and host Kirsty Gallacher.

Bristol Street Motors now operates from more than 100 locations across England.
