The British GT Championship is the best national series in the UK. It's a bold statement - one that certainly wouldn't have been true even a few years ago, and one made while the ever-popular British Touring Car Championship is going through arguably its strongest period since the Super Touring glory days.
It's also a stretch too far. British GT racing is a world apart from where it was a decade ago, but in a game of Top Trumps the BTCC undoubtedly has the edge.
That's not to say there isn't a serious argument to be made that the GTs deserve greater mainstream attention.

Scott Mitchell is Autosport's Features Editor and Formula E correspondent, and a judge for the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award. He ended a promising career as an extremely average karter to join Autosport in late 2013, shortly after graduating from the University of Kent with first-class honours in Journalism. Scott initially co-ordinated the national section of the magazine before covering the BTCC in 2015, when he also started editing the driver-dedicated supplement Autosport Performance. His brace of Renault MSA Young Journalist of the Year awards means his tally of accomplishments in motorsport journalism outstrips his number of competitive honours by two.@ScottAutosport More features by Scott Mitchell
