Nick Foster (born 10 October 1965 in Redditch, Worcestershire) is a British auto racing driver and businessman who previously drove in the British Touring Car Championship.


Racing career

After spending the first part of his career in Rallying, Foster switched to circuit racing in 2006, competing in the Radical Championship. In 2007 he went on to spend two years in the British GT Championship, driving a GT3 class Dodge Viper for Team RPM. Two years in the GT Cup followed.

British Touring Car Championship

For 2011 he stepped up to the British Touring Car Championship, driving for West Surrey Racing in a BMW 320si. His best result of the season was a second-place finish in the reversed grid race at Croft, ahead of team mate Rob Collard. He stayed with the team for 2012, now rebranded as eBay Motors. Nick remained with the WSR team for 2013, with a brand new NGTC spec BMW 1 series, alongside Collard and returning former champion Colin Turkington. He stayed as part of WSR's unchanged line–up for the 2014 season. Foster announced his retirement from the BTCC on 7th January 2015.

Foster is the chairman of Contour Electronics, who sponsored the WSR team prior to his move into the BTCC with the team.
