A nail-biting climax to a hard-fought 24-hour race saw the Milltek Sport team ascend the Nürburgring 24-hour podium on Sunday. Their Toyota GT86 Cup car took third place out of 15 starters in the highly competitive SP3 class for 2-litre modified sportscars. Pitted against factory-backed teams from around the world. The SP3 class is the second biggest class at the N24, with only the multi-million-budget GT3 class boasting more starters.
It’s the biggest race of the year, the ultimate test on the ultimate race circuit. The Milltek GT86 Cup car is running against legends like the Opel Manta and Clio Cup in class SP3. Luke and myself have been joined by Werner and Moritz Gusenbauer.
We are in box 25, supported by the whole Milltek family and the Manheller Racing team.
This is it. No turning back. It’s #N24h

There was no small amount of pressure as we prepped the Milltek Sport GT86 for our second VLN race of the year. Our convincing victory at VLN1 was something we were keen to repeat, but it was going to be tough. Continue reading VLN2: Another podium and a championship lead for our Milltek GT86
As reported on before, Milltek Sport haven’t just supplied new, improved exhaust systems to every GT86 Cup team, they’ve also bought a new 2017 spec car and allowed #TeamBTG to race it! With massive support from LiteBlox, and help from RaceWear24 and Vollverklebt (and many more friends) we’re back for another season of VLN… Continue reading VLN1: We win the first race of the TMG 2017 GT86 Cup
Some days I really have to pinch myself, you know, just to check that this is reality. And not some fevered pain-killer-induced hallucination on a hospital bed, because in real-life I’ve crashed.
What on Earth am I on about? Well, this…
Simply finishing a race isn’t normally a headline in motorsports, but after the hard season thus far, we were delighted to finish the Nürburgring 6-hour on Saturday. Here’s how it happened…
As I hinted at in my previous BTG live-broadcasts, we are super-excited to reveal that TeamBTG is being strengthened by the arrival of none-other-than Tom Onslow-Cole, and a mid-season-switch to a TMG GT-86 Cup car!
BIG thanks to our great sponsors Milltek Sport, Lite-Blox, and our guest driver JF Brunot! Even bigger thanks to TMG and Ring Racing for making this happen.
Well, we did it. Kind of. Thanks to Milltek and Lite-Blox, we ‘upgraded’ from our broken and fire damaged Fiesta ST to a 1994 E36 M3 and went toe-to-toe with the modern (and not so modern) competitors in class V5. Continue reading VIDEO: VLN6, very M3, much dogfight, such sadness.
Just in case you didn’t see it already on one of the world’s biggest car websites, here’s what went down (or up) at VLN4…
“In all my years at racetracks around the world, there’s one button I’ve never pressed. But this weekend, I pushed it, and I pushed it, and I kept pushing it until I could push it no more.
By now it’s no secret that our little Fiesta ST had a little problem in the second VLN of 2016. But that’s not to say that we didn’t make progress or didn’t have an awesome weekend.
