British Touring Car ChampionshipEdit

Ylitalo signed for Peugeot alongside David Todaro from the US to drive in the 1992 British Touring Car Championship. Ylitalo fared better than his team mate. With a best finishing position of 4th at Knockhill and despite missing the 4th round at Snetterton, he finished an impressive 8th in the championship with more than double the points of his team mate.

Ylitalo won the 1993 BTCC Independent Drivers Championship title, driving a BMW 318 for Team Dynamics

For 1993, despite better results than Todaro at Peugeot, Ylitalo left the team, eventually signing with Team Dynamics to try and win the Independent title. Ylitalo achieved a fantastic 5th place finish at Pembrey and eventually won the Independent championship. Before the end of the season, Ylitalo announced that he would be leaving Team Dynamics and the series to focus on his sportscar career, but was open to a return to the BTCC in the future.
