BTCC FANS PRAISE HYBRID INTRODUCTION & A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUEL
Fans praise hybrid introduction and a more sustainable fuel
Followers of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship have been taking part in the 2023 BTCC Fans’ Survey, with the championship’s introduction of hybrid power and a more sustainable fuel receiving almost universal praise.
Having opened in January and closed earlier this week, the survey attracted record numbers, with the BTCC’s loyal fanbase and enthusiasts of all levels participating.
With the final results of all categories set to be published over the coming weeks, the BTCC’s introduction of hybrid power and a more sustainable fuel received a huge vote from fans with nearly 80% – or to be precise, 78.84% – that either strongly agree or agree that the BTCC has taken a very positive step in introducing these.
With those two elements being added to the championship only last year, participants have also heaped praise on the racing and general entertainment value with more than ever before saying they would recommend attending a BTCC event or watching ITV’s live BTCC broadcasts.
One other statistic that also stood out in the early summary was an increase in women now following the BTCC, with an increase in just one year of nearly 5% of females taking part from the previous survey in 2021 – thus achieving a male/female split of approximately 60/40, which is a significant – and growing –proportion of female followers.
Overall, supporters had their say on the likes of the race weekend experience, television broadcasts, media platforms, sponsorship, road cars, environment and sustainability, leisure and lifestyle and many more.
The final results of the 2023 BTCC Fans’ Survey will be published over the coming weeks, but in the meantime, we would like to thank everyone for taking part.
Alan Gow, BTCC Chief Executive, said: “With the final results summary on some of the topics still being collated, we are proud to have received such an overwhelmingly positive response to our introduction of hybrid power and a more sustainable fuel.
“According to the fans, the BTCC is thriving in areas such as sustainability, equality and entertainment, and we will continue to strive for even greater successes in the future.
“We look forward to the final results being published over the coming weeks, but once again we would like to thank everyone for their great support by taking part in the survey in such vast numbers.”
