Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship series organiser, TOCA, has today (13 July) announced that Technical Director Peter Riches will be retiring from the position at the end of the 2022 campaign.
Peter’s illustrious BTCC career spans an impressive four decades, and at the end of the year he will have worked at more than 320 race events, 820 races and 30 seasons, with his expertise paramount in technical developments within Britain’s premier motorsport series over the years, while his involvement within the motorsport industry goes back to the 1970s.
While throughout 2023 Peter will be retained as a consultant in order to assist the TOCA Technical team, his retirement will see Sam Riches step into the role, having also worked within the BTCC for more than 20 seasons himself, importantly providing a seamless transition moving forwards.
One of the most recognisable and familiar characters in the BTCC, Peter’s experience within the championship is in a different league to the majority of the paddock and everyone in the BTCC wishes Peter all the best for the future.
