Track Car of the Year 2016 - 1200bhp GT-R, Alfaholics GTA, Cayman GT4 and more

We bring together the world's wildest drives to answer one question: what's the most fun you can have on track?

Like all good things, TCoty has evolved over the years. From humble beginnings, when we’d test a bunch of road-legal cars with varying degrees of on-track capability, it has morphed into something very different. Now resembling an eccentric orgy of increasingly extreme and diverse machinery, it’s as much a snapshot of money-no-object trackday aspiration as a guide to road cars you can enjoy on track.

We’re proud to say this is our maddest gathering yet. Bookended by the glorious Glickenhaus SCG003 racer/supercar and the SEAT Leon Cupra Sub-8, with everything from a 1200bhp tuned Nissan GT-R to an Ariel Nomad buggy (plus many more) squeezed in between, it’s a group test like no other. Sit back and enjoy TCoty - in association with Michelin.

As in previous years, our venue is the excellent Blyton Park Driving Centre and your testers are Jethro Bovingdon and Richard Meaden – both experienced racers and trackday regulars. The cornerstones of our test criteria are enjoyment and lap times, with a pinch of value for money, fitness for purpose and good old-fashioned gut feel thrown in for good measure.

Despite there being a Cayman GT4 among the contenders, there are no foregone conclusions here. So, without further ado, sit down, strap yourself in, and let battle commence.
