BTCC 2020

Bobby Thompson

The 23-year-old from Hornchurch is the first driver confirmed with the team for 2020.

Bobby started his career in karting before taking the step into car racing, initially in the Ford Fiesta Championship before two meetings in British Formula Ford in 2014, where he picked up six top ten finishes in six starts.

With a long term ambition to try and make it into touring cars, Bobby reverted back to tin tops for 2015 with an entry into the VW Racing Cup, securing his maiden win at Snetterton en-route to tenth in the championship standings.

Improving to fifth place overall twelve months later, Bobby then became the man to beat in the highly-competitive series in 2017 as he stormed to the championship title in impressive fashion, taking six wins and only failing to make the podium four times all season.

That opened the door for a dream move into the BTCC and in two seasons in the series to date, Bobby has shown his pace with a number of top ten finishes at the wheel of a VW CC; his best result being sixth during the 2019 season opener at Brands Hatch.

Now at the wheel of the Audi – arguably one of the most improved cars on the grid in 2019 – Bobby will hope to regularly challenge for top ten finishes, with his ultimate goal being to fight for a first podium and to launch a bid for the Jack Sears Trophy – which is open to drivers who have yet to secure a top three finish in the series.
