For over a decade HiQ has been part of the UK’s premier racing series the British Touring Car Championship. The BTCC continues to be one of the best loved, most illustrious and famous British Motorsport Championships and with trackside crowds bigger then Premiership matches and millions watching on TV the pressure really is on for drivers to bring home those championship points.
At HiQ we know that whilst drivers are the face of their teams there’s a pit lane full of dedicated, specialist individuals who help make the magic happen. That’s why HiQ are proud to sponsor the BTCC Teams Championship.
