The waiting is over and BTCC 2013 is go this weekend! This season is set to be a classic with four champions in a field of over 25 cars and it all kicks off on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit.
Reigning champion Gordon Shedden defends his crown against stiff opposition from old rivals Jason Plato and Matt Neal, who is aiming for a record-equalling fourth title. 2009 title winner Colin Turkington returns to the series, having signed up to lead eBay Motors' campaign with a BMW 1-Series built to NGTC regulations.
With Porsche ace Sam Tordoff joining Plato in the MG team and Collard backing up Turkington's charge, there will also be strong challenges from Mat Jackson and Aron Smith in the Motorbase Focus and Andrew Jordan in the Pirtek Civic. Meanwhile Tom Onslow-Cole heads Tony Gilham's expanded Team HARD and Frank Wrathall, Dave Newsham and Rob Austin will also be in the hunt for the silverware.
The action remains as intense as ever, with bumper-to-bumper racing and all the thrills and spills associated with Britain's biggest car racing championship! Three races open the new season of action on the Indy circuit, including a reverse-grid spectacular to end the weekend. Expect plenty of action from some of the country's best championships on the support bill too.
Fans will have the chance to meet their favourite drivers during the pit lane walkabout at 9.10am on Sunday.ADVANCE BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE GATE.
