The 2011 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship will see Xtrac as the sole appointed Transmission supplier / Technical Partner to the series, building on the plethora of championships where Xtrac is already an approved or exclusively approved supplier. Xtrac are extremely proud and feel privileged to have been selected by TOCA along with other thoroughbred suppliers such as GPR Motorsport, AP Racing and Cosworth Electronics to support this championship.
Taking effect in 2011, the cars will have a performance parity with current S2000 cars until 2013, after which time the performance of the NGTC cars will be increased. Xtrac are designing a new front wheel drive (FWD) transverse gearbox to suit the regulations whilst one of their existing longitudinal sequential gearboxes is already suitable for the rear wheel drive vehicles.
Testing of the FWD gearbox is due to be completed in October with production supply commencing thereafter. The prototype NGTC car will also take part in the official BTCC practice sessions at the final round of the 2010 championship at Brands Hatch in October.
