Vauxhall has bowed out of the British Touring Car Championship following almost 20 consecutive years in the sport.
To mark the occasion Autocar has sifted through the archives to bring you a gallery of the Luton’s brand’s best BTCC moments.
Vauxhall’s last appearance in BTCC was celebrated with the Manufacturers’ and Teams’ title at Brands Hatch over the weekend.
Vauxhall driver Fabrizio Giovanardi took two podiums and a fourth place to secure third in the BTCC Drivers’ Championship.
The British car manufacturer first entered BTCC in 1976 with the Vauxhall Magnum Coupe. Gerry Marshall won his class and third overall that year and Jeff Allam finished fourth overall a year later.
Twelve years later, Vauxhall returned to the Championship and began two decades in the series.
