The Indian Touring Car Championship (ITC) is the most prestigious racing category in India. The regulations in use allow for extensive modifications to a production based Indian road car below the capacity of 1800cc under a cc to weight ratio limitation. This makes the championship the most technically challenging and competitive racing class in India. The series is identical to the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship), which is run in the U.K. and the Japanese Super GT (Japanese Touring Car), which is run in Japan. The category was formed in 2007 to bring in technical engineering skill-set of teams and driving expertise of drivers together on a common platform. The cars are engineered to produce very high horsepower, have completely re-engineered chassis, braking systems, complex gearbox systems, electronics and state of the art suspensions and aerodynamic components.
Race Concepts debuted its Honda City VTEC ITC car in 2015 and won 3 races out of 7, with a further 3 podium finishes during the 2015 season taking the team’s lead driver Deepak Chinnappa to second overall in the championship. Deepak repeated the feat in 2016 and we added one more car to the category with our Super Stock Runner up from 2015 Varun Anekar. The car is the fastest ever Honda to go around any of the Indian racing circuits.
The goal is to set better standards and improve Indian motorsports as a whole by developing competitive machinery and producing better drivers.
