Motorbase Crowned Double BTCC Independent Champions

IKO is delighted to congratulate the Motorbase Performance team on its sensational double Independent Title win of the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season.

Motorbase secured both the Independent Teams’ and Independent Drivers’ Titles at the series finale at the Brands Hatch circuit, where driver Mat Jackson claimed the team’s 7th win of the season.

IKO PLC sponsored the Motorbase Performance team with Ford Focus STs, driver uniforms, team trucks and clothing all branded with the innovative insulation product IKO enertherm. The team enjoyed a successful season with impressive results from both drivers. Mat Jackson achieved 3rd position overall with 292 points and Andrew Jordan came in 8th with 255 points gaining the Independent Drivers trophy. The 2016 British season saw Halfords Yuasa Racing driver Gordon Shedden retain the coveted top spot.

The BTCC is the UK’s biggest motor racing championship and one of the world’s most highly respected series. Only Formula 1 and America’s NASCAR stock car series have longer histories.
