West Surrey Racing has announced the signing of Tom Oliphant for the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
The Leamington Spa-based driver will compete for the team in what will be the 62nd running of the UK’s most popular motor racing series.
Oliphant, 28, made his BTCC debut in 2018 with Ciceley Motorsport and qualified inside the top 10 at his second event at Donington Park.
He repeated this achievement five more times across the season, recorded a best finish of seventh at Knockhill in August and scored his maiden fastest lap in the series at the final round on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit.
His CV also counts a Ginetta GT4 Supercup title and British GT race wins, while he finished runner-up in the Porsche Cup Middle East and has scored a podium finish in both the Carrera Cup GB and the global 24H Series’ showpiece event, the Dubai 24 Hours.
