Definitions for "1997 BTCC season"
In the 1997 BTCC (British Touring Car Championship), it was Renault’s turn to take championship victory with Switzerland’s Alain Menu, who after 3 successive years of finishing runner up, was delighted to finally win. He started the season superbly with 2 wins at Donington and 2 wins at Silverstone. At Thruxton, he was denied by Biela’s 4 wheel drive Audi, which was working much better in the wet conditions.
