British Touring Car ChampionshipEdit

Osborne signed for Nissan alongside Roy Cop from Belgium to drive in the 1991 British Touring Car Championship. In a mixed season, Osborne managed to finish on the podium three times. Cop had won both Drivers championships and together with Osborne's 5th place finish in the championship, Nissan won the teams title.

Cop shocked the paddock by switching to Toyota for 1992 meaning Canadian driver Patrick Babiche would partner Osborne at Nissan as they aimed to defend their 1991 titles. Osborne became the number one driver throughout the year as Babiche ran a limited schedule in the BTCC, and again, finished 5th in the Overall Drivers Championship earning 3 podiums.

In Osborne's third term at Nissan, he would be joined by 91 and 92 Independent Drivers champion, Mike Bell and newcomer the the series, Jaz Hayward.
