Part of the British Touring Car Championship establishment and three times a title winner, Northern Irishman Colin Turkington chats about his low-key start in motor racing, the efforts to which he went to make his first racing car – a Metro – more aerodynamically efficient and the unexpected manner in which a hobby put him on the path to a successful professional career.
He has secured all three of his BTCC championships with West Surrey Racing and BMW – and this season he seeks to emulate Andy Rouse, the only driver previously to have won four. Turkington comes from a family with a strong motor sport heritage – and the dynasty looks certain to continue. When he’s not competing in the BTCC, Turkington can often be found at kart tracks, overseeing the efforts of his two young sons.

Ever wanted to get started in motor sport yourself, but not sure what it takes or how to do it?
Late last year Radical Sportscars gave Motor Sport's staff photographer Lyndon McNeil the chance to fulfil his dream of going racing by guiding him through his licence test and putting him into the final round of the Radical SR1 Cup at Brands Hatch.
In this podcast we catch up with some of the key names from that feature, Radical's Alex Mortimer (himself a former British GT champion) and driver coaches Stuart Moseley and Roger Bromiley to talk through how they all got start in the sport and expose the triumphs – and the pitfalls – that go along with your early years in the sport.
Topics include crashing, how not to crash, plus the fact there are no benefits to crashing into your team-mate – especially when your family runs the team – and much, much more.
