ANTHONY REID’S GREATEST CARS
THE FORMER BTCC ACE PICKS HIS THREE FAVOURITE RACERS
Best known in the UK for his British Touring Car exploits, Anthony Reid first carved a name for himself in Japan.
Strong showings in Group C Porsche 962s in 1990-1991 helped him into Japanese Formula 3 and Reid took the title in 1992. After his single-seater hopes faded, Reid raced GTS and touring cars in Japan before coming back to Europe for the 1996 German Super Tourenwagen Cup with Nissan.
Reid and Nissan turned their attention to the BTCC for 1997 and a year later Reid was a close second in the standings to Volvo’s Rickard Rydell. A move to Ford followed for 1999 and Reid ended the Super Touring era by again finishing runner-up in 2000, this time losing out to fellow Mondeo man Alain Menu.
Thereafter, Reid drove for MG in the BTCC (and twice at Le Mans) until 2004. He racked up 15 victories in the series and remains a competitive racer in major historic events.
