Staying with Motorbase for a second consecutive season in 2022, his fourth year of action in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, Sam Osborne is eyeing his strongest campaign yet at the same time as hybrid power arrives with the Ford Focus ST.

The 28-year-old, from Worksop in Nottinghamshire, raced to an impressive best overall finish of seventh place in 2020 and continued to be a top 10 contender last season – securing a career-best BTCC qualifying position of 11th position at the challenging Oulton Park. 

Solidifying his position in the UK’s premier motor racing championship in 2021, Sam was a multiple points finisher with best results of 12th position during the season-opening event at Thruxton and a top 12 again during round 25 at Donington Park.

Sam started out his car racing career in the one-make MINI Challenge, before stepping up to the then BTCC-supporting Renault UK Clio Cup in 2017. In his debut season in Clios he concluded the campaign inside the top 12 in the driver standings and repeated that performance in 2018.
