NZiRL 10: British Touring Car Championship

Touring Cars are a mainstay in the history of motor racing. Arguably at its peak in the 80's and 90's, some of the best, hard fought door to door action ever seen took place in BTCC and WTCC across Europe.

These days, Touring Cars are making a bit of a comeback. With the TCR Class already growing in popularity across Australasia, the newly released TCR cars on iRacing has renewed and furthered that interest in the virtual world.

So we decided to take these cars to the heyday of Touring Car racing, and present to you all our British Touring Car Championship!


NOTE: This season signals a change of our usual race night from Wednesday Nights to Tuesday Nights

To Join the league, you can find us either on the member website under leagues, or in the UI, under leagues, as "Kiwi Sim Racing". If that does not work, our League ID is 6915. You should then be able to apply for the league. If you are not accepted within 24 Hours, please message myself (Bull) as sometimes join requests do not come through.

Cars Available:
Audi RS3 LMS
Honda Civic
Hyundai Elantra

We will also be enforcing a one car per driver rule this series - this is to stop the car swapping that we see in official races where drivers will jump from car to car finding which one has an edge at each track - you will be required to run the same car for the full season. If you change cars mid-season, your points tally will be reset.

That's all you need to do - as long as you're a member of the kiwi Sim racing league that is sufficient!
