Is Colin Turkington WTCC bound?

1 Mins read

Reigning BTCC champion Colin Turkington may not be around in 2010 to defend his title after it was revealed West Surrey Racing possibly don’t have the budget following RAC announcement to scale back it’s sponsorship duties.

Turkington has been with the WSR squad for all but one of his eight BTCC seasons and his hard work finally paid off in 2009 when he secured the championship, but despite being the champion it is looking increasingly like the 27-year-old will be heading to WTCC after it is understood he has received offers from some of the front-running teams.

“I’m not really sure what I’ll be doing this year,” he told Autosport “With WSR not having RAC as title sponsor, there’s a budget shortfall and understandably they can’t progress until that gap is filled.

“I’m just having to keep my options open. I’m looking at BTCC, WTCC and the European Touring Car Cup, as are the team, but for me I’m not prioritising one championship over another.

“I’d love to stay with WSR, but I know there are guys out there with money who might be hard to turn down.”

“I have some interesting offers on the table, but I have to think long and hard about my next move, because it will be a very important one for my career.”
