The tin-top world champion seeking to tick a "missing box" in the BTCC

Rob Huff is back in the British Touring Car Championship for his first full-time campaign since 2004. What’s driven the 2012 World Touring Car champion's move from the global stage to the Speedworks Toyota line-up?

Rob Huff refers frequently to “stars aligning” as he talks enthusiastically of his full-time return to the British Touring Car Championship after an absence of 19 seasons since his rookie campaign of 2004. That’s no surprise bearing in mind the coincidence of life circumstances that have led the 2012 World Touring Car champion into the open arms of Speedworks Motorsport, where he will pilot one of the Cheshire squad’s Toyota Gazoo Racing GB Corolla GR Sports.

One particular aspect of astronomy can be ruled out though. Following his 18 seasons in the World Touring Car Championship, World Touring Car Cup and TCR World Tour (he skipped 2020 to go off and win the TCR Scandinavia title, as you do…), Huff still had offers to continue on the global stage despite Audi, his 2023 manufacturer, closing its customer racing department. But he said no and, at the age of 44, he’s coming home.
