Ranking the top 10 BTCC drivers of 2021


A refresh in equipment and some returning faces helped contribute to a supremely competitive 2021 British Touring Car Championship campaign. Ash Sutton was crowned a three-time champion, successfully defending his 2020 title, but faced stiff competition in the final year before the switch to hybrid. Motorsport.com picks out the best performers.

The British Touring Car Championship field was this season probably the closest it's been in the past decade of NGTC regulations. Twelve different drivers won races, and six more stood on the podium at some point.

Some of the old machinery - the celebrated Honda Civic FK2, the BMW 125i M Sport, Mercedes A-Class, Audi S3 and Volkswagen CC - departed into the annals of BTCC history. What we were left with was a fiercely competitive season, with familiar names and teams at the sharp end joined by some surprise packages who performed above expectations.
