Changes confirmed to BTCC calendar

Changes confirmed to BTCC calendar

TOCA, organiser of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, has today (15 March) confirmed minor revisions to the previously issued 2021 BTCC calendar as a result of the government recently issuing its roadmap for the easing of restrictions.

While the opening race weekend – at Thruxton on 8/9 May – remains unchanged and will unfortunately take place behind closed doors, amendments have been made to the scheduling of the next two events in order to further maximise the opportunity for spectators to attend.

The revised calendar sees the Snetterton event now scheduled for 12/13 June. The Brands Hatch Indy circuit event will be two weeks later, on 26/27 June, as all substantial spectator restrictions are expected to have been lifted by then.

No further changes have been made to the previously issued calendar, so the series will then head north to Oulton Park and Knockhill in late July/early August, before Thruxton’s second event of the year.

Back-to-back weekends at Croft and Silverstone in September precede the penultimate race weekend of the season, at Donington Park.

Brands Hatch’s legendary Grand Prix configuration will hold the Season Finale on 23/24 October.
