Next GenerationTOCA introduced the ‘Next Generation Touring Car’ into the BTCC in another attempt to reduce ever spiraling costs imposed by the manufacturers of the Super 2000 class. Regulations are based around 2.0-litre turbocharged 4 or 5 door cars with the engine coming from either the same ‘family’ as the model of car or with the option of running a generic ‘unbranded’ engine sanctioned by TOCA. A series of common components that included gearbox, suspension, brakes, front and rear sub frames, turbo, electronics, ECU and fuel system are all TOCA-sourced items. This gave scope for as many as 14 different models to be built, many by teams that would have not done so in the past. The success of this category can be gauged by the fact that it continues to field a full grid of 32 cars with close racing.
