Owens chosen as sole turbo supplier for BTCC grid

11 November 2010

newsOwen Developments (UK) Ltd is delighted to announce that it has reached an agreement with TOCA to supply single specification motorsport turbochargers for the UK's premier race series, the British Touring Car Championship.

The contract, which entails supplying turbocharger units to the entire grid of Next Generation Touring Cars (NGTC,) runs until 2015 and marks the culmination of an extraordinary year for Owen Developments involvement in the BTCC.

At the start of 2010 Owen's commenced a supply of bespoke specification turbochargers to Mountune Racing, engine builders for the Team Aon / Arena Motorsport BTCC LPG Focus's. As the year progressed, it was clear that the Owen Developments turbocharger was a factor enabling the Team Aon / Arena Motorsport Focus to be consistently amongst the fastest cars in the BTCC, taking seven race wins and six pole positions throughout the season.

Not only were Owen Developments turbocharger units able to deliver prodigious pace, they were also highly reliable with no failures and minimal wear experienced throughout a full season's racing and testing activity. This fulfilled the twin briefs of high performance, delivered at an affordable price.

Commenting on the TOCA / BTCC contract announcement, Owen Development's MD Brian Owen said, "Everyone at Owen's is extremely proud that we have been selected to supply turbochargers for a championship as prestigious and as high profile as the BTCC. This success recognizes Owen Developments technical expertise and commitment to excellence in the field of turbocharging and also represents a superb challenge that all our staff will rise to."

Owen's has already commenced delivery of 2011 NGTC specification BTCC turbochargers to assist teams in their closed season testing activities and is currently gearing up production, maintenance and trackside liaison infrastructure in preparation for next season.
