How Ingram is seeking to reclaim the BTCC crown from Sutton

Tom Ingram was deposed as BTCC champion last season by Ash Sutton. But with his Excelr8 Hyundai team forging a partnership with the ultra-successful Team Dynamics operation, he's confident that he can get muscle back to the top of the pile in 2024

No longer can Tom Ingram’s name be prefaced with the words ‘reigning British Touring Car champion’, but who’s to say that can’t be the case once again in 2025? After winning the 2022 title in his second season with Excelr8 Motorsport and its Hyundai i30 N Fastback, he fell only just short last term after what on the points chart appeared to be a season-long battle with eventual title winner Ash Sutton, but in reality was usually a forlorn struggle.

Ingram is chipper, as usual. And this time, at Excelr8’s livery launch to celebrate the centenary of title backer Bristol Street Motors, he’s accompanied by his beloved labrador. In fact, this is potentially the first time in Autosport history that a driver has been interviewed while holding a dog on a lead. The amiable Yuri trained as a guide dog, before it became apparent that he had some problems with his sight, and he fell into the arms of willing adopters Ingram and his girlfriend.
