The British Touring Car Championship has revealed a revised, tightly packed calendar that will see nine events run from August to November.
The series will begin at Donington Park – as it was originally scheduled in late March before the delay brought on by the pandemic. It will be held on 1-2 August, the first of four events in the month of August.
It will conclude at Brands Hatch on 14-15 November, utilizing the Grand Prix layout. This is five weeks after the original scheduled date.
BTCC chief Alan Gow said the revised calendar presents a busy four months for all personnel, but that all involved are ‘up for the challenge’.
“These are incredibly challenging times for the whole nation.
“Through it all, we have seen the importance of being both adaptable and pragmatic… and the BTCC is no different.
“So it’s entirely logical to draft plans and lock in our provisional dates, with the ability to amend those if circumstances dictate.”
“Obviously this calendar presents a hectic four months, with three separate back-to-back events and four events in the first five weeks alone.
“But our teams and drivers are fully up for the challenge – there’s such enormous energy, enthusiasm and passion for the BTCC that everyone will want to just roll up their sleeves and get the action under way when the time comes to go racing.
“However, the overarching element will always be to ensure we have the correct procedures and protocols in place, in order to provide a safe environment.
“But before that time comes the most important thing we can all do is to please stay safe and also protect the health of others.”
