Bristol Street Motors with EXCELR8’s British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) Race Team is offering motorsport fans the opportunity to see their handiwork on the biggest and most iconic race track in the UK, with an exciting helmet design competition.

Design templates can be downloaded from the Bristol Street Motors website; completed designs are to be submitted via email to Bristol Street Motors, with the entry period set to close Monday 4th September 2023.

The two winning designs, to be judged by the drivers themselves, will be showcased on Tom Ingram and Tom Chilton's helmets as they take on Silverstone circuit as part of the 2023 BTCC calendar. Once revealed on Saturday 23rd September 2023, the day of Qualifying, the helmets will be worn throughout the three rounds of racing on Sunday 24th September.

Thousands of passionate racing fans will witness the designs in action, creating a thrilling and unforgettable spectacle during the penultimate race weekend of action before the Championship finale at Brands Hatch GP.

Robert Forrester, Chief Executive of Bristol Street Motors, said: "This competition provides an incredible platform for designers to unleash their creativity and make their mark on the world of motorsport.
